    Flickr logoThis morning when I parked my car this guy was just sitting there eating his nut without a care in the world. Yes, I’ve got a great zoom on my camera, but I got within 5 feet of this guy without him even twitching at my presence. It wasn’t until a car drove by that he hopped up into the tree.

    In his series, Created Equal, Detroit-born photographer Mark Laita explores social inequality by placing photos of US citizens who appear to be the opposites of each other (punks teens and Amish, for instance) side by side.

    The truth is, the memo is simply rehashing the same information the feds have been stating for years, which is one reason why so many police officers and security guards tend to treat citizens with cameras as suspected terrorists.
