SHOPPING SPAIN STYLE

Markets are always one of the most interesting places to visit or photograph. The ones in Andalucia in southern Spain are particular good. Meats, cheeses, vegetables, dried fruits and so on. There is a distinct Arabic influence in a lot of the food, derived from the days of the Moor occupation. It makes a great mix with the Mediterranean food and what you end up with is a big colourful medley of sights and smells.

This stall owner was not the usual camera shy type. He's looking to the side, rather than in to the lens as I wanted him to, because the old lady that he had been serving was berating him for ignoring her.

He just kept smiling and posing. We go here on our Moorish Spain trail. You can read about that here.
