My main interest in photography is people

The night before the big parade the wax castles are assembled at the city fairgrounds for public display and judging. Seen this 17 times. I really don't go there for the wax castles these days. 

My main interest in photography is people. 

Won't attend today's parade. Can't get any better than the year I sat in the VIP section just a few feet near the governor and other dignitaries. I know it will be live on TV and most likely also on facebook. 

I still have a few hundred pictures to edit through from yesterday's events

191006 Caution: This FAKE product may be hazardous to your health

I buy these raisins at a local market for around 55 to 65 baht. When I saw these raisins for sale at three for 100 baht at the Mukdahan Indochina Market, I decided to buy six boxes.
Unfortunately the product is fake. Not the weight as advertised on the box, actual weight 90 gram, packed in ziplock bags.

The raisins may be safe to eat, but obviously a FAKE and therefore I wont take a chance eating them
Note: this flash image shows a reflection and somewhat overemphasizes what appears to be dust or powder
