Iranian Ignorant shop keepers

By kombizz      
In spite of putting lots of information bulletin on the air thru TV, Radio, mass media about saving energy by local and central government in Iran, still these rich ignorant old fashion shop keepers, put highest voltage light bulbs around their shop to attract customers.
They don't give damn about saving energy locally at all. If they were asked to be stopped putting these bright lights, they show their money !

This works for me .... makes a good strong point, which for me is what photo journalism is about.

Well spotted, and an issue that deserves highlighting.

guess the white balance is a little off too. Wastage is there in every country so the idea applies to everyone. :0)
