Oops - don't read this again. I posted it by mistake.
This week's theme is street sellers. Pictured is a Chinese man who will make a pair of shoes while you wait:
When your shoes are finished and you've walked in them a bit, you'll need to have them shined. No problem - anywhere you go in the world, you'll find a shoeshine boy on the street just waiting to accommodate you. This photo is from a trip I took to Rio in 1970.
But where are all the shoeshine boys? All those chairs at the ready and only one boy has shown up. I have a feeling the boy having his shoes shined is a shill trying to entice some real customers.
Here's a video I found that goes along with the theme quite nicely:
Remember to keep your shoes shined. Give these boys a break.
