Shopping - Despair

    Newer Older

    Shopping not only induces religious feelings in consumers, it causes anxiety and despair, too. Just as love and hate are close neighbours, so elation and despair move in close company. This young lady was late for her shopping fix. Lights were already dimming when she finally found her heart's desire, haunted by the ghosts of despair she hasted through the aisles, the fear that freezes the heart finally banished: Campbell's tomato soup might have been sold out - but it wasn't.

      Oh course she would have tomato soup--all red heads eat tomato soup--that is how their hair stays red--I understand her fears and anxiety that they my be out.

      Well captured!

      Ha! This is genius! I especially like her dramatic, fashiony pose, adds to the brilliant incongruity. I LIKE this one

      I am noting how your subject craddles what appears to be a can of Campbells soup. A desperate need for a fix .. lol.

      These shots you created like this are really kewl :-)
