Street Vendor in Red

Kathmandu, 2010

Yesterday was Labor Day in the USA. My heart goes out to all the workers of the world who struggle for a living wage. 

For more takes on the theme of RED, visit Mary's Ruby Tuesday.

I love the post but for some reason I really feel for this Lady. I have no idea why. I guess it is how this lovely picture talks to me

A beautiful photo of the human condition. Who can help but feel something? These are wonderful reds! She may be poor, but she's not drab. Love the colors in the basket, too.

my favourite red posts are those with a story ... and i feel the same about a living wage in any country. i am so lucky to be able to work as a woman and earn enough to support a family. i wish the same for everybody.

I feel lucky to have a job I can grumble about. Lovely photo, Francisca! I wonder what it is she is selling?

We are lucky to live a priveleged life here in the US. But sometimes I think those who have the least are the happiest of all.

I like the looks of this woman. She seems content somehow.

I think this dear woman has a tough time of it! And even in this country, it is getting harder and harder to make a decent living as we quite rapidly morph into an oligarchy of the wealthy!

November does not look good, either...may the gods, whoever they may be, help us!

Anita Johnson said...
