September theme day - People Watching

On the first of the month, the City Daily Photo community chooses a theme that we each try to interpret.  This month, the theme is People Watching.  The much-loved portal is still unavailable, but there is an alternate site where many of us have linked in.

I'm not really a photographer of people.  About the only place I seem to have people in my photographs is when I am at the downtown Greenmarket.  Every Sunday, local farmers and crafters gather downtown to sell their wares.  It's a lot of fun to try all the goodies.  I personally like supporting all these local farmers. This particular day was quite warm, and I'd sat myself down on the curb and was fiddling with the old 35mm film lens I have on the digital camera.  It turns out to be a serendipitous photo.  As I was watching the Mu Mu Muesli lady, she was watching customers.  People watching squared!
