You know I think, this might be the only open market they did not stink. smile But this must be filled with with different fragrances.
We like the honest feel in this shot, no bright smile, just an every day task, just the normal struggle for survival.
Great photojournalism!

Now I see flowers smile Her shawl matches the flowers and the earthy colors blend perfectly with the rest of the pictures, really nice.
A flower market, that's quite interesting. Definitely a place with such beautiful colors and tones. Really like the way you framed and composed this street shot.
the color and warmth in this is wonderful. first my eyes went to her mouth - trying to understand what she's doing - and then i saw those feet walking by and the light on the indigo stripes of the wrapped clothing. there's just so much to soak up here.

Nice street shot. Colorful. She just sells the petals?
Charles Dastodd: Yes, she was just selling those petals. There were some other piles of different colors that I cut out. People use the petals in rituals.
I love the look on her face..great shot!

She looks really bored! Do these flowers sell well?
In any case, your picture is stunning!
well done, cheers!
Charles Dastodd: I think they do sell well. I was told to go early in the morning because they were likely to sell out!
Very well taken Charles.
