-) Thank you
That guy looks a little grumpy 😀
two hours of melancholy, gets trampled with your comment, just like that 🙂
I have misinterpreted then, after a few hours shopping I have a similar look on my face..
Why is that? You must have been to IKEA, I suppose
You know me too well already 😀
Now I’m curious. Tell me what happened?
Nothing out of the ordinary, just IKEA really.. Possibly the worst part is there are no short cuts to the checkouts, you are forced to visit every part of the shop before you can escape, a bit like rats in a maze really. Shopping for me is almost like a military operation, go in, get the job done and get out as soon as possible 😀
Ah! that seems quite a strategy to indulge customers. I prefer home delivery which is surprisingly quite efficient in Mumbai. You could call for a product worth a dollar, without paying extra charges.
Now that is my kind of shopping 😀
Reblogged this on MÚSICA, ARTE, E MUITO MAIS….
Fantastic capture – it really works well in B&W. Great.
Thank you Richard -)
I love the idea of “faces in the bag.” Buy it over the counter and bring one home to your wife, your brother… “Here, i got this for you! It’s news! it’s called, Joy!”
That’s poetry bro and If i request, you’ll only laugh me away. Rarely do words stand tall before a image that bespeaks volume and you did so beautifully.
Damn, This image and your poetry, a new post for your blog. Please?
My good man, for sake of our species i’ll leave the poetry to you 😉
A portrait of the masses. Couldn’t have been better if it had been intentionally posed. How fortuitous for that particular bag to be sitting just there, just then.
In a mall, this man waited till his wife and daughter joined him with coffee and muffin. Nothing changed much afterwards. They quietly sipped on their beverages and left. The urban middle class is in turmoil and it hurts when human beings are at loss of words, a laugh, a joy, a simple conversation missing here is tragic.
I have heard the term “consumer zombies” used to describe the general populace here in america. I’m afraid that in many cases it’s an accurate label.
People are so consumed with the pursuit of what they have been conditioned to “believe” is happiness that they forfeit any hope of ever reaching contentment.
If we do not awaken soon from this consumer delirium, the tragedy will take on new and far more dreadful meaning.
That is so true. The conditioning and the propaganda of capitalism has snatched away the mere essence of happiness. And your post points out well, our future seems bleak, the middle class is on the verge of collapse if not rectified in time and its high time.
Who knows? Perhaps it must get worse in order to get better. Seems irrational but, so much does today.
“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall.. think of it, always.”
-) destruction before creation. Cycle of life.
Perfect. “Faces” indeed!
