I mentioned a few days ago that, as per her request, I took Nozomi to one of those giant American grocery stores she’s heard so much about. As you can tell from the pictures, I think she was mildly horrified. We went late at night and they actually had the forklifts out stocking everything. They had also turned off about a third of the lights which added an eerie feeling to the emptiness. She took dozens of pictures – of the shopping carts, of the birthday cakes, juice gallons, unnaturally colored popsicles, meter-length ground beef tubes, aisles of canned food, the bulk food section, the “ethnic foods” aisle, and so on.
What do you think of places like this? And if you don’t mind, what do you think of these photos? I’m not sure I followed the “rules” of photography but I think the first photo is intriguing at least.
