Good to Wow: Pink Edition, SOOC

In case you missed it, we took our birthday boy to the mall for his big day. As I mentioned before, we really know how to throw a party.

There was pink at the mall. Quite a bit of pink, actually. This is a mall in Nyack, New York, and it has kind of a warehouse-y feel. The floors are concrete, and there is a lot of grunge metalwork that is exposed. Who would think, then, that all of the trash cans and benches throughout would be in fuschia? I guess the contrast between grit and frill is what makes the statement.
And, yes, this one's really, really dark, but that is why we are editing them, right?

And of course since it is a mall, there is a Victoria's Secret.
My SOOC is a bit fuzzy. I felt a little strange aiming the camera at the store lest someone think I'm some sort of pervert.

I did ask someone in VS if I could photograph their big pink and white polka-dotted dog, being clear in my explanation that I was completing a Pink Assignment. They told me no one is permitted to take photographs in the store. That being said, I had another photo of a pink and white chair I took in the store before I asked permission. I thought about posting the contraband picture anyway, but since it appeared to have the names of the employees written on it, and since I wasn't supposed to take pictures inside the store, it'll just go in my archives. It was a really cool chair, though. You'll just have to take my word for it.

Cool photos. Weird about photos, but kind of understandable I guess.

Love your choice. Can't wait to see how you play with it!

That's a whole lotta pink in one store. You should have just taken the picture - that's silly that you couldn't.

Wow. Maybe too much pink? I gotta say... I love a rebel! I would have taken pictures too. ;)

I love pink-would've loved to see the "contraband" chair. Ha! Guess we'll just have to imagine.

Really like the pink trashcan. Wish I could have it in my house.

Yeah - you are actually not allowed to photograph in a mall. At least here in AZ :(

Thanks for sharing your take on this week's challenge.

what a find! something pink and bright to cheer up the place!! :)

And while it's good you asked, sometimes the no-photography rules can be silly... :) What you going to do? Steal their bra design and make your own? :) Oh, well. Keep the pic for yourself. :)

I am loving that trash can!!!

That's an interesting rule to have for a store. I don't really understand the logic. I can sort of understand not being able to take photos in the change room but the entire store? That trash can is very cool!

great eye for detail. the trash can would look really great cropped close

Victoria's Secret is always a good place for Pink the line and pink in general. Part of why Guy doesn't like to go there. ;O)
