With a Little Bit of Luck!

Queen St Mall is always busy but there is a sense of recklessness and quiet desperation in the air. The Police are very visible, numerous signs state and restate various rules, CTV cameras abound.
On a bench I met June from Coorparoo; she was hoping to 'scratch up' some money.
"What will you spend your winnings on?"
"Bills and a holiday."
I left before she finished the card.

  1. Nice candid shot. I would have saved the money to put towards the bills, not a "lucky" ticket.

  2. I kind of hope she wins enough to buy something in the store behind her. It would have to be a big jackpot.

  12. No, she is not a Chanel lady. She would not even have noticed the shop was there.

    This is such a sobering post, Mark. An air of quiet desperation. Yet with all that policing and all those rules, there is litter under the bench.

    Bills and a holiday. I wonder how long since she had a holiday.
