Uploaded: October 02, 2011


Found this at a flea market. The vendor wasn't too happy with my handling merchandise I wasn't going to buy. Maybe she felt I was copying her design. Snapped two shots before she took it away. Nikkor 24-120mm lens at 24mm. F/11 at 1/400th. Some processing with Tiffen Filters.

Very cool image! Love it! I was at a festival last month where crafters set up booths and sell what they make. I took a pic of a purse display. It was a very colorful display, it caught my eye instantly and the owner ran me off. She thought I was taking pics so I could copy her purse designs! The funny part of this story is my mom used to make the purses 20 years ago! #9716105

Glad you caught a nice shrp image before the rude vendor took it away. That is not the way to treat a potential customer, how did she know you were not going to buy it? :-) #9758985
