It was my first use of the camera. I had been to the market before and it's mainly cheap junky stuff from China and very little local art and craft so I wasn't expecting to see anything much to shoot. But when I looked at things through the camera it all just leapt out at me. I was really surprised. So I can highly recommend junky markets!
I love it when that happens! It's great when you look through the view finder and suddenly you see all these potential shots. It's wonderful. I never thought of that though... I'll have to go to some markets some time and check it out. With my camera, of course.
