Shopping madness 29.12.05
It is always a magical moment to watch kids (actually one of mine is too young to notice he got gifts) opening their presents and becoming crazy with so many boxes. Some very surprising gifts for my wife and family, and the usual ones to me (dress shirt, wine…) Now shopping really starts. Once Santa Claus’ day is gone, shops start their winter sales. 20%, 30% off this week, up to 80% in a few weeks. Why would I bother buying things at any time during the year when the real deals are for now? It is freezing these days. Snow in the garden, in the city, buses are late, cars without snow tires experience ice skating and I can’t warm my body. 3 coffees. Doesn’t work. I am one of these people who complain when it is too cold, and who argues that they can’t stand for humidity and high temperatures. Where should I live then? This picture is one I took in Ginza last summer. F/2.8, 40mm. For any reason it gives me some Xmas shopping feelings, even it this was in August.
