Fresh Pickins

Fresh Pickins, originally uploaded by The Real Fauxtographer.

There is this great market in the Lower East Side called "Essex Street Market" that has been around since 1940. For those of my followers from Cincinnati, I'd compare it to Findlay Market during the summertime. Tons of vendors with great food and a delightful atmosphere. Sadly, there are rumors that Essex Street Market will be moving from my neighborhood. That's why I decided to make a visit and see if I could snap a photo. This is the result.

Post Process: Slight lightening, increased sharpness and levels.

  1. Margot, this is an awesome shot! I love the depth of field, the frozen action and expression. Definitely a good step in your efforts to take more shots of real people in un-posed situations.
