Odd photo in ad for house refinance

Screen Shot 2010-02-01 At 9.29.13 Am
I was reading an article in USA Today about how many US states will soon require people to obtain a doctor's prescription for cold and allergy medicine containing pseudoephedrine when I noticed this ad for a home mortgage refinancing service. The photo is odd. Maybe this was the advertiser's intention, as it caught my attention. I am curious about the origins of the photo. Anyone familiar with its provenance?
