Clueless advertising

 on 

I have noticed an increased number of people carrying advertising boards around Sydney in recent times. They are called many things, such as walking billboards, human billboards, moving billboards, sandwich boards. They seem to be filling in some advertising niche. I am not sure who pays attention to them but apparently it is cheaper to pay a person to carry an ad all day long than to rent a space on proper advertising billboard. I guess this means smart financial decision but how do the people who carry these signs feel knowing they are cheaper than a poster box?

This photograph of a well known fashion label shown by a smartly dressed young lady maybe an exception where it works as her looks extend the brand image.

Bus stops

I have passed this set of bus stops countless number of times but it took the gloomy, gray day like today for me to notice the yellow, alphabetical signs for each of them. I guess my mind is usually focused on finding interesting people situations but it is good sometimes to refocus and place these people in the urban environment.
