The Bag Ladies of Canal Street

1/250th at F4, ISO 400 (35mm) - Fuji X100s.

Louis Vuitton? Rolex? Rolex?

I remember my first experience on Canal Street, the home of fake handbags.  This must have been Freshman or Sophomore year in high school.  My friend wanted to go to Canal Street to get a fake ID, so four of us took the subway down.

We were walking down the street when someone walked by whispering, 'Fake IDs, Fake IDs?'  I mean... he picked us out pretty quickly, we must have been perfect targets.  So my friend says, 'Yeah,' and he takes us into a Chinese restaurant.  'This is just a front for some illegal operations' he tells us.  I was kind of nervous, but the fact that I was a passive observer with a couple other people made me just sit back and not pay too much attention to what was going on.  I already had an ID.  I'll tell the full story here one day, but making fake IDs is how I got into photography.  I downloaded a very early copy of photoshop to alter a photo of an ID and fell in love with it.  The rest was history. 

The man sat us down at two separate tables with two of us at each table.  It was here I probably should have realized something was going on.  He clearly did that because the four of us together would have realized what was going on.  

The two guys who were getting IDs sat at the other table and I overheard the man telling them that he had to go around the back to tell them we were here and to not move or say anything.  He was purposely trying to make us nervous about everything.

So he walks out.  After a couple minutes we went over to their table.  'What'd he say?'  'Oh, he's coming back soon.  He just had to take our money in first to make sure it's not counterfeit.'

'Um... I don't think he's coming back.'
