Default Street hustling

Hi folks....I shot these a few days ago while on a street walk, what else....
While I sure these tactics are not true and limited to L.A. I will admit to getting snookerd into one of these stores and buying 3 lousy hats for 15 bucks. It happened so fast and by the time I was in, I just wanted to get out and once out, I could not believe I let myself get pushed into a store...I get home and tell my wife and she just started to laugh...Here is how it goes...In front of these stores, they get these pretty young ladies and they will literally grab the men by the arm and drag or push them into the store while telling them what big strong men they are and yada, yada, yada...

Anyway, here are two scenes.....If anyone has similar experiences or have seen it happen in your cities, please share. I and other would love to hear / read the stories...

Pentax K20D with Vivitar 24F/2.8

Scene number 1


Check out the expression on this guys face...lol

Scene number 2
Pentax K20D with Vivitar 24F/2.8

As I am walking down, I see that all too familiar scene forming in front of me.




She has her victim and is luring him in, or should I say..Pushing him in...lol






Hustled right in....I did not stick around to see if he actually bought anything, but still I was walking away laughing.. .




PLEASE EXCUSE the poor quality of the images....I missed the set up on my lens as I use hyperfocal / zone focusing and had the focus off...
but better to have bad images than no images at all I suppose...

Lol! Three lousy hats for fifteen bucks plus being told I'm handsome by a pretty woman? I'd come out of the store feeling pretty good plus I'm not empty-handed. I think that's fair play .

No, I have not seen that here in NYC.
