Street Photography 08


This image reveals on the the cultural differences between the US and Germany. In Germany people drink in public and nobody cares. In the US people try to hide their addiction. Either they drink out of a brown bag or behind closed doors. This image reminds me of my first visit to the US. I bought a bottle of whiskey and the clerk wanted to put it in a brown bag. I said “thank you” and walked out of the store without the bag holding the bottle in my arm. After a while I started to wonder because everybody turned around and looked at me. I checked my zipper and found everything was okay. When I told my family they were just laughing!

Enjoy and keep on photographing!
