Juxtaposition

DSCF8724w

I walked out of The Plaza Hotel “somewhat” surprised. Just a few minutes ago at the Angelo Galasso store in the hotel, I saw a pair of  shoes for sale. A very nice pair of  shoes indeed, crocodile leather, with big AG letters on top made of white gold and a good number of diamonds on them and a price tag of… $135,000. That left me puzzled. As I was walking out of the hotel into the summer heat, I noticed a strangely moving man in the fountain right in front of the hotel. As I got closer, I noticed a well worn wheelchair and suddenly a whole picture opened up. A one legged man was picking pennies from the fountain floor. He had difficulty moving around with one leg. After a few minutes he lay down just to cool down and refresh a bit. That stirred my emotions- the poor man, the fountain with pennies and a pair of hundred thirty five thousand dollar shoes. That is a very emotional juxtaposition.
