Travel Theme: Street Markets

By Vladimir Brezina

Ailsa of Where’s my backpack? has proposed another photo challenge—it looks like it’s going to be a regular weekly thing! This week her challenge is Street Markets.

I don’t have too many photos of  street markets. Although I do remember photographing some wonderfully colorful ones in Germany, that was many years ago, and where are those photos now? But let it not be said that I didn’t rise to the challenge!

Here is a snapshot of the crowded pre-holiday market held last December in Manhattan’s Columbus Circle, at the edge of Central Park, taken at the magic hour of twilight…

And yes, I did travel to take this photo—from the East Side of Manhattan all the way to the West Side, from one culture to quite another.
