The..., originally uploaded by AmsterS@m - The Wicked Reflectah.

Unedited shot of a couple of window shoppers reflected in a puddle in Amsterdam. Taken with my Panasonic DMC-FZ8. No editing, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

Sometimes not buying something can be more satisfying than spending your hard earned cash on items that you might use just a couple of times before they end up on the giant trash pile of modern products that nobody really needs, but that get manufactured at great cost, effort and the price of destruction of the planet anyway...our society sometimes seem to have gone completely mad for things that use up way more resources than the final product is worth, we're in an eternal death-spiral of buying more and more, always wanting the latest version or update of anything that's shiny or seems desirable...I applaud these two young window shoppers who follow their impulse to check out what's new, but then just walk away from it...or maybe they ran to the next ATM to pick up enough $$$ to purchase whatever glittery piece they saw in that shop window, lol :)))

Go and only buy the stuff you really need for survival this weekend, no shiny things, no must-have products, no fancy things, just the bare basics, do it and tell me how that worked out for you :)

Thank God it's Friday :)))))

I've made a wicked reflection movie of the window shoppers too, check it out on my YouTube channel, thank you :)
