A contrast in grocery shopping

December 1, 2011 4:24 am

This morning my friend Diane sent me a video that showcases a genius idea: virtual shopping. It probably sounds like something you’ve heard of before but I’m sure it’s safe to say that most of you haven’t. I’ll let the video speak for itself (below).

That said, I’m currently in India working on a project focusing on their upper class. And after seeing this video it reminded me of they guys who came to my house on a rickshaw to sell food yesterday. One guy sells only fruit, another solely vegetables, the next just sells milk and so on. Apparently they come every day — so this morning, after seeing this video, I decided to photograph the fruit guy. The stark contrast between the cultural style of shopping is incredible. One is extremely personal and the other very efficient. Which would you prefer?
