Last weekend, Leeds hosted its final farmer's market at the back of Kirkgate Market. From now on the farmer's market will be held on Briggate, which might remove some of the fun . . .

I certainly wouldn't want one of those thrown at me, Jon, so I jolly well would duck!
I like to pov used here, and the distant figure adds depth to the image and really makes the composition too.

Receding frames within frames, this really is very well composed. Plus it has a nice triangle - the man closest to the camera seems to be looking past the girl to the man in the background.

Never had a duck egg. Next time I go to a farmers' market I'll have to get a couple.
Lovely natural shot Jon, but the market doesn't look very busy which makes for a very nice background.

They look big, even for duck eggs. More yolk than white as well, normally.

Well timed inter-relationship between the elements, Jon (and I don't include the rain this time!!)

Will need to be a pretty big basket to get all these eggs in it !!
I do believe when they are laid they are soft and flexible,
and ''harden up'' when they are exposed to the air ?
Makes sense to me,and I bet the ducks will think that too !!

By heck, it's a long time since I had a duck egg! A great candid capture, Jon...and as Barbara says, think this would work well in mono, which would remove the distracting colourful background Wink

Hate to tell you guys but the white eggs on the left of the picture are goose eggs. Good candid shot of the market though.
