Good Morning Everyone,

Please take the trouble to click on Fabrics, Patterns and Colours to see this photograph much bigger and clearer. It is surprising how much better it is.

In Guérande , there is an outdoor market on Wednesdays and on Saturdays from 9am to 1pm.

It is a market which is spread along the sides of the streets, not one big central area. The stalls are colourful and friendly and look even more vibrant when linked with the overhead bunting, waving in the breeze.

I particularly liked this stall because of its artistic arrangements as well as eclectic colours and, just at that moment, customers arrived to engage with the stall holder.

I will add another street scene as a w/s so that you can get a feeling for the town on a market day.

Have a lovely weekend, Bev :-)

Ciao cara Bev, lovely daily life composition with nice scene and fantastic carpets, fine details, wonderful colors and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Good morning Beverley,
The colors in abundance is what makes this picture so attractive.
Chosen nicely the POV with the buyers and seller man.
Wish you a nice weekend,

Hello Beverley,
A lovely impression of this market stall and its many rugs on offer, which have so many different colours and patterns. They all make a great photo and the way they are displayed and draped around some chairs (I think) and hung up on the wall is also very attractive. I like how you included the salesman with two potential buyers as well.

Hello Bev,
The French love their outside markets; in this image we can see why. An image well composed with the people ideally placed in the frame allowing us to fully appreciate the range of good son offer. Lovely warm tints and excellent sharpness.
Raining here today and again tomorrow.

Hello Bev,

It seem a picture out of Morocco with sale of carpets on street.
I look on beta version and can still not see your WS picture, too early I think.
You play fantastic with light and colours.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect, nice addition of the people
The area care for a colourfully image.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice weekend,

Witaj Bev!
Curiouis scene from street, shop makes impression.
Good frame and colors.
I like this daily life shot.
Well done.
HAve a nice weekend.

Bonjour, chère Bev,
Faire le marché est une tradition pour certaines personnes.
Cela permet de voir des gens, se parler, échanger, etc.
Ici, cette vente de tapis de différentes origines aux couleurs variées donnent à la composition une note de gaieté.
Merci pour la photo présentée en atelier.

Hello Bev,
The kilims mainly seen here make this look like somewhere further away than France. The title of the photo says almost all I had to say. The carpets are "carelessly" displayed in a very careful way, which probably serves to attract many customers. They certainly have colours enough to attract anyone, so you didn't have to wait long for customers to come along. The WS is also a nice photo but not quite as bright as this one.
Kind regard,

  • Great

A very nice market scene, thats right, a colorful and cheerful photo, I like your composition, I think it is a good reportage shot
regards Ryszard

Bonjour Bev,

Ce n'est pas le choix qui manque et comme le temps semble un petit peu frisquet, magasiner réchauffe le coeur de la madame. Un beau moment de la vie quotidienne chez les touristes.



Hello Bev, looks almost like a Turkish carpet vendor explaining to tourists how good and precious his items are...Nice shot. Have a nice evening

Hello Beverley,

Looks like they import from Laos or Thailand & Turkey and sell at a profit. The renovation and repair of tapestries sign is an enterprising touch. Tfs.

Hi Bev, very good photo of this interesting scene of daily life with the carpet seller, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. A great job perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this interesting work.

Good night and happy sunday.
All the best from the south of Spain.

Hi Bez,in effect it seems a great fest of colors this street market of Guerande,nice opportunity to take an original pic of the local daily life,excellent sharpness and brightness too! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Hello Bev,
This vibrant scene really jumps out at us. The colors and patterns are great, and we even have a phone number to get our own tapestries repaired. ;-) I like how you presented this, with the couple on the far right, and tight framing.

Hello dear Beverley and have a nice time
and a happy Sunday and new month October
I like the subject of your colorful photo
and I often visit markets like this oneI liked your description as following the stalls are colorful
and frindly and look even more vibrant when linked
with the overhead bunting waving in the breeze

Hello Beverley,
Markets are most interesting places to visit while traveling in another country.
Here the carpets and the tissues are very colourful and they have beautiful patterns.
Did you come under the charm for purchases?
Best regards, Paul

Hello Bev
This is certainly the most fascinating of your two interesting pictures of today. I like the scene with the woman very interested in the coloured cloth and willing to buy and the man looking rather sceptical and afraid that she will buy. Maybe a wrong interpretation but it is always nice to fantasize with these scenes.
Well done. Have a good week. Groet Rob

Ciao Bev
i mercati sono sempre ricchi di colori e di persone, ottimi luoghi per fare fotografie e le tue mi piacciono molto.

Hello Beverley, a lovely shot, and perfect timing with customers looking at the rugs.
It is a sharp shot, and yes, it looks even better in the large version.
I just love all the colours and patterns.
I like the tight crop too.
Regards Jean.
