When I'm out taking photos people often look at me like I'm crazy. They seem to be thinking "What the hell is he doing?", and I guess that's because their photographic culture is to simply line up the smiling people and click.

Anyway, this was one of those situations. I was on Madison Avenue taking a picture of the inside of a trash can - OK, I can see the disparity there. But that's kind of what I was going for. I was waiting for the light to cross and I saw this trash bag that said MADISON AVENUE BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT.

Hmmm. They're so upper class that they have printed garbage bags... ? The regular ones just won't do. Or is it that people wouldn't steal them if they're marked? I don't know. I just found it very odd.
