Friday’s Photo of the Week (Weights and Measures)

Weighing some peanuts.

Weighing some peanuts.

Barcodes? QR Codes? Scanners? Swiping? Tills? Scales? Price Tags? Price Checks?

Who needs ’em?

One of my favourite things in all my travels are open air markets, street stalls, portable vendours. Suining allows me to stroll down the street and shop for everything from jewelry to baby clothes to bulk foods.
Here, one of my favourite street sellers displays her wares (peanuts) and how she determines the cost.
That weight slides along the rod and when they balance, she checks the notched number on the rod and that is the price.

Effective simplicity.
