This was taken with a Pansonic Lumix LX-3 at a flea market in Connecticut in October, 2011. It was early (around 8:00 a.m.) in the morning and the sun was low and very bright. The light was extremely contrasty. At first I’d thought it would make a good color photo (the garments were brightly colored) but in the end I decided to go with black and white. Somehow the colors were a little too much “in your face”. The woman was aware that I was taking pictures, but it didn’t seem to bother her. In any case I didn’t stay around long enough to find out if she had a problem.
