These are some images I took while working for a friend. The event was a charity for children, which is great. It was a boxing fight and auction. What struck me as interesting was that it was $50,000 dollars a table, that men were buying $75,000 dollar motorcycles on whim, that they were actually allowed to smoke inside the Hilton, and that every table of men had their very own young woman to be at their beck and call. Drinks, cigars, sitting on your lap, what ever. This event was thrown several days after the banks began to fail, and whispers of recession had already begun to circulate.
