      Good work, Ralph. I'm one of those who can walk through a shopping mall and see nothing I want to buy. In fact, more often than not, I never bother to look :)

      Malls really bug you, don't they, Ralph? Well, its like they are these dead spaces--sterile and pretentious--even if I do like shopping and clothes. That is why I loved the stores in the colorful ethnic neighborhoods in NYC and those sloppy, happy discount and bargain stores.

      It might be more accurate to say they interest me. Also, my wife and I walk there when its cold, and I bring my camera, looking for Victoria's secret.

      My wife made the mistake, once, of purchasing something from a VS outlet. She has since been inundated with catalogs on what seems a weekly basis.

      When I think of the money this company wastes on millions of these glossy, multi-color, high quality catalogs; the trees that are harvested for them, the pollution pumped into rivers by paper mills, the petroleum that's used in the inks and products being sold...

      These huge, impersonal, profit driven eyesores called malls are a blight that has driven untold numbers of small businesses into bankruptcy. They are part of the same incestuous family that WalMart was born of.

      May they all rot in retail hell.

      Same with us. I heard there's some way to shut the catalogs off, but I don't remember how to do it.

      You definitely have a keen eye, Ralph. I always enjoy your photo collages. Malls are great for watching plastic people.

      I got a lot of spring fashion ideas from your hub. Thanks!

      Thanks for the comment. There are a lot of interesting things to take pictures of at the mall. They seem to spend a lot on mannequins. I planned to juxtapose a picture of three heavily veiled Muslim women and their little kids next to Victorias Secret, but I didn't get a good picture of the women. I didn't want them to see me taking their picture so I shot too fast and didn't get a good picture. Then a mall security man came along and asked me to stop taking pictures--against mall policy. At least he didn't try to grab my camera or make me erase the pictures.

      Ralph, I really like the mannequin shots. They are so "Death like". More fun than people.
