NC, I believe they're tattoo machines. He's posing in front of a tattoo parlor, as well (there are background clues to occupation).
A lot of Orbitz gum too.
Apparently Atlanta's full of beautiful women
keeping hand sanitizer with ya is super smart.
C'mon, everyone knows black people don't carry bags! I am TOTALLY kidding. It IS weird that there are generally no minorities/few minorities represented in these lil' articles
Where are my Asian, Latino, African-American, Middle-Eastern brothers and sisters?
Not a condom in sight.
@bem: I guess they must not be having sex!
I too noticed that Burt's Bees is taking over. Atlanta must be ground zero. Also, car keys? Does everyone own a car in Atlanta? They must have crappier than usual public transport. Remind me not to visit lest I end up stranded due to my inability to drive.
Ok, really? Hipsters just *happen* to be carrying around Baudelaire? Unless they're trying to impress with their sensitive faux artist street cred, I think not.
Here are my two cents as an Atlantan:
It's downright bizarre that there aren't more people of color. Atlanta's very ethnically diverse. However, a good number of the photos seem to have been taken in Little 5 Points. It's the eccentric, hipster, still slightly gritty part of town, but its diversity is more in facial hair than skin color.
Almost everybody in Atlanta drives on a daily basis. Public transportation exists but is unappealing for plenty of reasons. A big part of it is that Atlanta is the definition of urban sprawl. There are no natural barriers to the sprawl- mountains are a hundred miles north and the ocean is a few hundred miles south, and that's it.
It snows so rarely that if the picture of the girl in the snow was taken in the past year, I can tell you what day that was- March 1, 2009.
And as much as I love Atlanta, I cannot defend the lack of condoms or excess of Burt's Bees.

In fairness, the peppermint lip balm is amazing. Mmmm tingles. More diversity please.
Wow, all these people carry a lot of stuff, even the guys. My purse contains: iPhone, wallet, chapstick (yes, Burt's Bees), keys. That's it.
I was definitely wondering about the lack of condoms, toothbrushes, deodorant, tampons etc. Those are things I ALWAYS have with me. I do love the idea, and as a graphic designer I can definitely appreciate the colors and textures used in the presentation.
I had no idea that so many people walk around with yarn and embroidery thread...
I'm not sure why burt's bees is so popular. I had to trade in mine for cocoa butter earlier this year because my lips got so badly chapped when I use it.
GOOD JOB!!!!! What a neat idea and the photography is wonderful. My hats off to you for your creativity, I'm sure there are several folks who would like to have your abilities!!!! Keep up the good work, you are talanted.
As a tattoo artist, I don't know why someone would just carry thier machines in a bag, much less eight of them. Plus a tray? Doesn't happen.
Moat amazing set of photos and subject matter i've seen in a long time!
fuck all ya'll - let's dance it out.
just so you know, these are all staged
This essay is trying too hard They thought they had a cutesy concept and took some boring staged pictures. It tells us nothing.
dull Orbitz and Burt's Bees advertising.
i like how one guy has two tubes of toothpaste but no toothbrush hahahahhh
iPhones are really ubiquitous, impressive....
