A Tale of Capitalism

There’s so much to see.

And street photography forces one to stop and be grateful.

We’re often framed by things we buy and sell.

There’s a tale of capitalism waiting to be told.

We give in to what we want.

Our appetites.

There’re always boxes to open.

Things to sell.

People to talk to.

There’s money to be made.

Conversations to have.

And there’s the wait.

Wholesome food.

    “forces one to stop and be grateful.”

      Yup – it slows us down so we have time to appreciate the scene.

    Good theme. Most of tnese folks work very hard for not a lot. B&W suits the idea well. I never understand how these guys make money selling tacky watches but if tney didnt I’m sure they would sell something else. The M6 and a good eye never fails as a partnership.

      Yup – all of us are buying and selling something just like them.
