It really doesn't make any difference where you go to uncover the fun and characters in a market. Whether it's a flea market or farmer's market, it's pretty much the same. And they're in Sante Fe, New Mexico and Estes Park, Colorado...even as far away as the Smokie Mountains of Eastern Tennessee. Each area is represented in this post, and since it's been awhile since I've made an entry, I decided to run a series of some of the most delightful people I've run across. None were posed. Most didn't even realize they were being photographed. And that just adds to the rich tapestry of a rural market. Real folks. Real towns. Real portraits of Americans. God Bless America!
With a Marketing Degree from Southern Methodist University, I established my own advertising agency specializing in logo design, capabilities brochures, print/radio/television promotions and client relations. An integral part of my creative labors included photography, a passion that has stayed with me. I hope you enjoy my artistic endeavors.
