Enjoying the BW shots Chin... street photography at its best. That is especially noteworthy when the photos depict another culture. This is what your world is Chin. As with the photos you produced with Nikki, this is a great delight to see. This is an interesting juxtaposition... a produce market inside a recent building with fluorescent lights. Not exactly how we experience what are called "farmer's markets" here. Right Leighton?
Funny you should say that, Curtis! I've been mulling over how to describe the market to the rest of you, and especially to Leighton. I can only surmise that open air markets are less popular here due to the fickle weather. The tropics, it rains often. And the building's old-ish, older than I am, which makes it more than 30 years. I could have sworn it smelled rank then but on my last visit it didn't. Couldn't find any signs of improvement or renovation, perhaps the stallholders just got their act together.
That's not to say they don't exist here. There's a weekend farmer's market, out on a large carpark by the local stadium. Though I don't really remember if they still have that; may have just sold them to the middleman or the local co-op, who'd bring the produce mainstream.
There used to be a department store within the buiidlng's belly (the only one in town!) but it's gone the way many retail stores have. Taken over by the local government's office, where you get your passports done and renewed, amongst many other services.
