The photographer I spoke with a day or two back said she was having a hard time making ends meet. Every time I pass the mall photographers, their shop is usually empty and the staff sitting playing cards. The local photographers that are making money have contracts with government agencies.

I notice a slowdown in spending in general. I used to go into the local bookstore for coffee and it was packed. It's now like a graveyard.

I don't have much money to spare - mine goes on rent, food, fuel and insurance. That's it - nothing much left after that to save or spend.
