The MAC Counter at Brown Thomas

Hands up now lads. How many of you have waited around while your significant other picked out makeup or browsed the aisles in a department store?

Yeah, me too.

This young fella was collecting the rubbish from the drawers and in contrast to the immaculately done up girls dressed in black he wore torn jeans and a cheap sweater.

PS. Lunar eclipse in 2 hours time. I think I’ll be asleep!

The witch and the balloons

A witch hands out balloons to young kids outside Brown Thomas on a late October Saturday.

Just out of frame of this shot is a woman who has asked for a balloon. The witch explains that the balloons are just for the kids.. I wonder why? More on this later.
