I like going to markets

Yes, I like going to markets. But not like many people, in order to shop, but I find that it’s a concentration of motives for street photography.  Plus, it is easy to take photos of strangers since they are distracted by looking at the offered items. My personal favorite are second hand markets. You can not only take photographs of people but you can also get an idea of what those people like doing and get to know them very little by just seeing what they are interested in.

For analog fans it can be really interesting too, since you can sometimes find really good deals of old cameras or lenses or other stuff you want.

Here are some sample images I took this saturday. They are taken on my Nikon FM2N with an Ilford FP4 film.


There are so many different people on markets which makes it so interesting for me.


Even kids have something to be happy about.


Sometimes there are things you want and everything is usually very, very cheap.



Sometimes you even find things eventually usable.


Not only the people visiting the market give interesting subjects. Also the merchants are really interesting. This one seams quite relaxed ;).
