I am not very comfortable photographing people, unless I know them, but complete strangers is not something I photograph a lot.
I'm more of a 'thing-photographer'.
But last month on one of my photo strolls I walked around at the Union Square farmers market.
There are many nice things to photograph at the market, for instance these bright colored apples.
And this lovely lady just happen to end up in my photo as well.
Actually I like this photo a lot, maybe because it is something I normally wouldn't shoot.
This last month I have looked at this photo over and over again, should I post it on my blog or not, always ending up choosing another photo.....
Today this photo is finally ending up here, looking through all my March photos, this was the one I liked the most!

(today I'm linking up with Photo-Heart Connection)

  1. I so agree with you! I don't do well taking photos of people!! But, this is exceptional! I love the light on her face as she studies those apples! And, I wonder what is her story; who is she, is she alone, and what is she going to do with the apples?

    1. I also buy my fruits at the supermarket. I actually don't even think about going to the market, until I end up on one during a walk. I always say to myself "I should buy my stuff here", but that never happens.....

  3. This is a lovely shot, love the light on her & the apples. Farmers markets are a great place to photograph, lots of interesting colours & people.

  4. I like it too for she is standing behind the "Honey Crisp" sign. I bet she herself just might find that amusing also. But yes, I too do not like to invade people's space with my shoving a camera in their face. This is when the telephoto comes in handy. Wonderful capture Nellie.

    1. I didn't even realize that she was standing behind the "honey crisp", but that is funny!

  5. This is a lovely scene. The sheer colour of the apples draws me in and I notice the sun shining on the bags and the boxes underneath the table. I love the apple seller and her silver hair showing that she may have been selling fruit all her life. I like the dark environment and the outline of another person in the background and how the boxes in the back give a nice depth of field, as does the light falling on the wall to the right.
    I can understand why you would feel a heart connection to this scene. I do too, thanks to you!

  6. I recognize your reluctance. For that reason I bought a Nikon V1 with a 110 mm (300 equivalent) to avoid the attention that a get when using my Canon 5D with a somewhat immense telephoto lens.

  7. Wonderful scene! You coming back to this photo again and again means your heart is telling you something. Maybe this is a direction you are ready to go in your photography? A thought to ponder. Thanks so much for joining in the Photo-Heart Connection!

  8. I wonder what she will make with her apples, or if she'll just enjoy them as they are? This sweet little lady just draws me in and makes me wonder. No wonder this image kept calling to you.

  9. I love this photo. The darkness in the background and the crispness of the woman and apples. Lovely. I love the look of concentration on her face, too. Makes me wonder what she's thinking, what her story is.
