I was out with my camera on Christmas Day and tried to take a picture of the kitchen utensils that were being sold from a wooden cart. But the vendor wanted me to take his picture too, and the moment I trained the lenses on him, his vendor friends joined him too, and gave me their best smiles. Must say I am far from unhappy with the result!



Lovely photographs, turned out great.

Take care.

Love the contrast of the shiny utensils with the colourful people - awesome :)

Now that's a lot of utensils. Isn't it odd how some people flock to a camera. I'm just the opposite. Thanks for sharing your pics.

Wish there were more of these types of salesmen here in the USA.

I love it. That's like the carts in the markets we have here. I've bought off of those carts before.

lovely, Natasha! I especially like the first one just because, as a fellow photographer, I get what you were after...

Love the photos.

Love the photos! I think it's so cute that the vendors wanted their pictures taken! (I wonder if they now know they are famous!)

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

I love it! The shininess of the wares really makes the picture (and the happy vendors make the second!)
