MN Non-worker! Farmers Market

I begin each week-end with a trip downtown to the Farmers' Market, whether I need anything or not. I just like the atmosphere, but we do eat lots and lots of fruit and vegetables during the summer. When I asked if I could take his picture, the man who was patiently waiting for his wife seemed a bit startled. But, when his wife arrived, she congratulated me on my good taste in subjects! Very cool people go to the Market!!

  2. I love the smile on his face.

    There are some moments and occasions that I would like to ask people to take a picture of them, but I haven't dared to try it. If I explain in a well-mannerd way, however, I think it will work. You motivated me.:)

  4. Nice photograph, Kate. The man certainly looks pleased either with his picture being taken or for what his wife just said or because he is pleased with the produce and flowers he purchased.

    My daughter, Melinda, has a picture she took on my blog. It is a stunning macro.

    It reminded me about some photos I took of some happy Spanish young tourists the other day. I took some pics of them and they some of me! I should have put it on the blog...

  13. I love those sunflowers in his hand. I've been thinking sunflowers have become my favorites. But then I'm fickle. Earlier in the season I said my favorite was peony and later I'm sure I'll be singing the praises of mums.

  14. Kate, I'm so lucky to live beside a daily market. When I'm at home I love to go there and watch around even if I don't need anything. Then I like espression of this man and I'm sure that his wife is in right :-)

  15. What do you mean, non-worker?

    He's obviously standing guard over his wife's loot while she galavanting around.

    I know that look very well. I've been in his position many times.

  16. Great picture of this nice man, full of color. As you know in Mexico, the farmer's markets closes some streets in the cities and begin the fun. Your request is post, hope you like it. Cheers.
