During my childhood in Taiwan, I used to tag along my Granny or my Mom while they did daily shopping in traditional markets and it's been my favourite place since then. Usually while waiting, I'd spent my time watching people doing their activities. Some of them were busy preparing the food, haggling, calling the customers loudly to come to their stall and a lot more. Somehow I found it very interesting. But of course, at that time I didn't any camera to capture it. I just kept 'those pictures' in my mind.
Before my recent trip to Taiwan I have made a plan to visit as many as traditional and night markets possible. Besides to satisfy my appetite of local delicacies, this time with my camera, I wanted to capture 'real' pictures and share it with you. Here's I let you to take a peek what I have been keeping since I was a kid. I hope you enjoy this photo essay and you're more than welcome to create your own title for each pictures :)
The last picture is particularly unforgettable for me, because the chicken seller lady was very furious at me. You might already knew that I love taking candid pictures from a far distance. And after only one snap, this lady noticed I was taking her pictures and she started yelling angrily with her huge knife pointed at me. Until now, I had no idea why would she get so offended. Perhaps she thought I was just being rude or something. Well, lesson learnt. Never mess with a chicken seller!
So which one is your fave photo? And what's the title?
