A November Morning in the River Market

Recommended Posts

This photo tour is completely spontaneous;I had no plans whatsoever to go on a comprehensive photo tour of the Market this morning, as God knows I've done it plenty of times before, but spontaneous photography is perhaps the most fulfilling form of photography, so here we go:

The River Market, Kansas City, Missouri

Around 8:30 am, Saturday November 5, 2005

Jars and skyscrapers: What more could you want?

Look at this! They're enclosing the stalls in the City Market! This was new to me:

This picture really pisses me off. I thought I had this building perfectly symmetrical in my viewfinder when I took this:

It was a rather gray and overcast morning:

I like the people, too. Especially the guys in the barbershop. Gotta wonder what they were thinking of you!

Of course, I'm looking at this as I eat my cereal plain, so the strawberries were immensely appealing.

As for the Cup and Saucer, I want the CAR!

Tosspot,

As usual, fanastic stuff! The bottles and skyscrapers shot is brilliant, and the cup and saucer one with the car is great as well.

You've got a wonderful situational eye for capturing the moment. How do you get such candid shots of people? Maybe its a Midwest vs a Northeast thing, but here in Providence, people see me with a camera and immediately bolt. In Minneapolis/St.Paul, Madison, and elsewhere in the Midwest, this usually didn't happen.

Thanks everyone!

Garris-- I think it's interesting how people in public react to the camera. In Kansas City at least, they will do one of three things:

1) Everyone will see you standing there with a camera so they will all stop and wait for you to take the picture so that they don't get in it, because they automatically assume you don't want people in the photo. I usually want people in my photos, so I'm always like "Oh go ahead, don't let me stop ya...." or something to that effect.

2) They will see you with the camera and know you're taking their picture, but they never (so far anyway) put up an argument or complain about it, they just go about their way.

3) And the funniest of all: Occasionally people will see me with my camera and they'll come right up and pose for me-- that's the most fun, and as long as the picture turns out decent from an artistic perspective, I always post it with the other photos.
