Four Dandified Dummies & One Working Stiff

On South Lake Avenue, Pasadena, California.  A real man doing an honest day’s work contrasted by a merchandiser’s ideal of a fashionably and expensively clad gentleman.

A final image this week from my spot in front of the Pottery Barn on Colorado Boulevard in Old Town, Pasadena, California.  Like many other working stiffs, this is a man at work in his office.   It is quite likely that this gentleman commutes to his office every working day, but then his “office” becomes the commuting vehicle for his “business clients” all day long.   Better than a fixed office in some building, this office always has a changing panorama out side of its windows.  I wonder if the man ever gets the urge to deviate from his assigned route, after all the same view cycling out his windows, day after day after day must get old after a while.  Maybe this is the day that the display “780 TRANSIT HUB” above the driver’s windshield changes to “ THE UNKNOWN”?

I applied my usual processing to this image using Lightroom and Nik’s HDR Efex Pro then selectively blurred the areas around the bus using OneOne’s Focal Point 2.
