Are people dishonest?

It’s that time of the year again where every pavement stall in the market starts selling paper lanterns.
You expect to see paper lanterns everywhere, but not early in the morning when there is not a soul in sight. Not shoppers, not salesman, not guards. Just paper lanterns with streamers fluttering enticingly in the breeze.
The salesmen had obviously not wanted to cart the lanterns to whichever street corner they call home. But were they not afraid the lanterns would be stolen?
You and I choose to think of people as dishonest, but they who know, seem to know otherwise.

What a beautiful sight! Spaces filled with color floating in the wind.
As for dishonesty! I would have not been able to leave my products without me being around either! What a trusting soul!

Natasha - I love that 'photos! Such brilliant colour! And it is good to hear that people still have faith in others' honesty. It re-affirms one's own faith - it really does.
