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 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?
