Saturday Market

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS 1/60 second F/2.8 ISO 250 6 mm


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Bettina from United States

Gorgeous colors and textures in your processing. Just so beautiful in this market, and the sense of being in another time. Your color choice is perfect.

A beautiful image, Mariana---like a painting!

NaDu from Köln, Germany

As in many of your images one of my first impression was that this one is at least 50 or 60 years old, I can't decide whether due to the colors, clothes or the kind of shops. But it's really amazing.

Henk van Rijssen from Utrecht, Netherlands

another great photo from you made at that market.
When I will ever visit Waterloo I'll make sure to go there for making photo's.
Seems to me a place where the past meets the present.

@Henk van Rijssen: you would be delighted for sure if you ever come to waterloo ;))) You do not need to wait for any exhibition , you simply go to the market and find any ( every ) kind of people ;))) My folder is still full of them ; need some time to select the best and edit them :)
