#601 ... The Loneliness of a street vendor


Great job for students .. but tough doing the hard sell, handing out brochures to the lunch time crowd ... this time it was brochures for a Spray Tan Clinic. Although this may also be a thing of the past .. Australian researches announced today a medication that slowly releases in the body and enhances the natural melanin production ... giving you a darker toned skin for up to 60 days. Apart from the beauty market the real excitement is its use for people that have skin conditions affected by ultraviolet light.

Nice photo. Is that Manners Mall?

Sounds like a great alternative to a "real" suntan. Our area has an epidemic of skin cancer. Most locals are the very pale compared to the tourists with good reason.

I had heard that this kind of thing actually damages the skin. Maybe it is now improved.

The lady handing the brochures out is attractive. I am surprised she isn't getting more attention from the two men.

I can't figure out the orientation which is bugging me (I'm working on my problems!). Is the girl looking up Woodward st towards the Terrace? Man I've gotta get a hobby.

Jeremy said...

YES she sure is ... looking up Woodward Street ... looking west .. the National Bank is on the corner just to her left ... ciao

i'm surprised people sill feel the need to tan artificially - i guess it's cheaper than taking a holiday to a sunny spot

I think I prefer to get my tan by taking a walk on the beach or by going for a summer bike ride.
