Thank you so very much for your kind comments, Dominick, Pat, and Karen! The flower market was really a joy to see -- and smell! I've also posted a shot of ornamental peppers that I shot there in my gallery, in case you'd like to take a look.

Thanks very much, Connie. I was really glad I remembered to take some of the photos diagonally, as I think they often come out much stronger that way.
