Street Photography at the North Market

Different market but same styles of street photography as in my prior post.  For all but one image I was trying to blend in ; taking the shots without the people noticing or paying me much attention.  I also decided to use a different vantage point and went upstairs to get some shots looking down upon the milling crowds.  When taking photos,  trying different camera positions (above, below, straight on, angled, etc.) lends itself to creating different images even when it is the exact same subject.

At first I was going to do a snap and go of the fudge lady but when she saw me I gave her a smile and took a moment to talk to her about the different flavors of fudge she had before asking if I could take her picture.  As you see she was not adverse to it.  But later when I asked if I could take the photo of a young lady making pretzels she said no not so much because she was shy (which I think she was too) but because she said the boss wouldn’t like that.  Something you might want to keep in mind when you are out doing street photography and it involves someone working.
