It’s Sunday so I nipped around the corner to get the papers. It’s hot today; not warm: hot. I was sorely tempted to take yet more photos of the beautiful cherry blossom in my road but as I turned the corner to the High Street the subject of today’s post became apparent: the French Market was on the Green.
I didn’t buy anything but enjoyed wandering around this little travelling market enjoying the sites and smells. I think I come alive in March and April – good weather gives up colour, heat and the smells of summer.
There are so many vernacular photographers I could refer to but I think the focal length of these images mean they are less a narrative about any subjects within the frame and more about the general activity and landscape of the place. Less Martin Parr and more Paul Graham but more formal and graphic in their composition. Indeed it’s for that reason that the top image is my photo of today – for its graphic, compositional qualities.
