Found Still Life: Flea Markets And Antique Stands
When sellers put out their wares in flea markets and antique shop windows and stalls they make arrangements they hope will catch a buyer’s eye. Unwittingly, they also act as erstwhile art directors for photographers, too! Our next Picture This! assignment is to seek out those “found” still life shots. This photo was made with a Nikon FM2 and a 28mm f/2.8 lens on Kodak Tri-X film in Hong Kong.
