Street vendors are hard workers. They sit there for 12+ hours, waiting for the few people that are actually going to buy one of their nickeled nick knacks or their junky jewelry. Well, I’m proud to say that today, I was one of those few. I was out there fighting for the American economy, on the front lines, cash in hand, keeping this hard working street vendor going for one more day with my purchase of that $4 ring. I’m going to sleep well tonight, like a true American hero. I also snapped the above picture while I was loitering around waiting for the transaction to complete. All the colors caught my eye. This was taken with my Nikon D80, and my 60mm lens, with no flash, and a way too slow without stabilization shutter speed of 1/6, so pardon the slight blur.
