Don't Like Shopping? Take Pictures Instead

If you like photographing, but are somehow not enticed by long lines, getting elbowed in the ribs and cut off by shopping carts in pursuit of a red tag sale, Picture Black Friday might give you another excuse to get out there today.

“I think there are enough people turning the ecomony over…” says Sandy Carson. “I’d rather just make photos and be an observer.”

This is the fourth year that Carson has participated in the crowd-sourced photojournalism project. Picture Black Friday, the website states, “aims to revisit and analyze a combination of forces — a worsening economy, financial desperation, excitement, fear, and a distinctly American cultural tradition — that culminate the morning after Thanksgiving.”

Whether you’re shopping or shooting, good luck out there. I’ll be eating leftovers.
