Market Day #13

By rosie42  
(Those who have viewed the preceding shots in this series will probably want to skip the following descriptive text ...)

Salamanca Place, on Hobarts historic waterfront, consists of a long row of stylish Georgian sandstone warehouses built in the 1830s. The buildings now house boutiques, bars, bookshops, restaurants, outdoor cafes, art studios, craft galleries and jewellers.

On Saturdays, Salamanca Place comes alive with the popular Salamanca Market, where over 300 stallholders sell quality produce and crafts from all over Tasmania - here you can buy anything from a handmade wooden toy to a handspun, hand-knitted sweater to a fresh peach to a 50-year-old china plate. The nearby green lawns and park benches are shaded by plane trees that twinkle with tiny fairy lights in the evenings.

This is the next in the series of images taken at the markets and is best viewed large - please click on the link for a clearer viewing of the 1000 pixel version ...

Any feedback (+/-) gratefully received.

Thank you for looking!

Susie :o)

Good colours and textures, like the placement of the star, well thought out

I agree with above - great bright colours and textures. The star really jumps out.

Have really enjoyed this series Susie. Can i ask, did you have any problems when you were taking the photos? Do you always ask first? I have several 'market' shots from France and although most people are happy for you to shoot their produce one or two did look at me as if I was slightly odd Smile Jane

Thank you Mo, Lehan, Jane, David and Jim - appreciate your valued feedback ...

Jane - I always ask before taking a people shot ... and I've discovered you should also ask before taking a shot of people's stock. One stallholder was unhappy with me taking a photo of their toys - to me, I was taking a shot of some colourful toys which I thought would make a pleasing image; but to the stallholder, I was suspiciously taking photos of his stock potentially for devious market intelligence purposes! () So, a lesson learned! lol I don't think it's necessary to ask before photographing pumpkins or onions though. {~} I usually just explain I'm practising my photography, and that seems to satisfy the curiosity of most.

David - it's huge! (Not many more to go, promise! lol)

Thanks Susie, I always ask but maybe it was my French with a Yorkshire accent that was the problem! Smile Jane

Think this is my favourite of your market day shots! Nice presentation too!

I realy, realy, realy like this shot. Colour, texture and graphic..

afraid I'm a bit more aggressive than you when it comes to taking shots.. I just take them.. but I've found it useful always to carry a business card and if there are objections or questions to offer a card. It proves you are up front and have a professional approach to your work and provides a certain amount of security to the subject. Good to get chatting to folk first.. that usually is enough to get you what you want.

Anyway... I love your series.

Thank you, Tommy - this is one of my favourites too ...

Phil - it's kind of you to take the time to view and comment. And you're right about it being best to spend some time conversing with people in situations like this; it helps to ease their suspicions about your genuinely innocent motivations! lol Your portfolio is terrific, btw - thank you once again for dropping by ...
