A Very, Mini, Mart

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 24mm ISO 200 3=bkts f/10 Lr4, HEP1, TpzSim; PsCS6

I found this “hole in the wall” newsstand sandwiched between more imposing storefronts on Myrtle Avenue in Monrovia, California.  I was attracted to the colors and lines, and am fascinated by tiny, almost, diminutive businesses.  I always wonder how many newspapers, packs of cigarettes or packs of gum do the operators of these business have to sell  over how many hours a day in order to sustain their fixed expenses, let alone make a living wage?

    Dr. Evil’s cohort starting up a nefarious business empire, one mini, mini mart at a time perhaps? There are no small photos by the Big Fella. This is one more example of that truth.
