Inequality in America

Today's topic is about just a moment in your day.

Day 9, Thursday: A moment in your day (this can be just a photo or both a photo and words)

Since my day today isn't very exciting and mostly spent at work, I thought I'd share something that is a glimpse into my day, browsing the internet for funny, interesting, and inspiring things.

I found this photoshoot on flavorwire.com that speaks to the sociologist inside of me. It's side by side photos that illistrate the inequality within America. The photos took Mark Laita, the photographer 8 years to compile into this piece. Please go visit Mark Laita's website to see more of his work.

Company President / Janitor

Amish Teens / Punk Teens
Vegetarian / Butcher
 
Indigent Couple / Wealthy Couple

Aren't these really interesting? Go check out the rest of them, he chose really interesting differences to highlight in American culture.

So there's a moment in my day, surfing the internet.

I love the look of your blog. The photos are very poignant side by side. In each, I seem drawn to one side or the other. That seems interesting to me. Thank you for sharing.

Btw, you are making me go on a mad hunt looking for that banana stand! Didn't know it was in London but I gotta find it! Do they just tell you through twitter where it is?
