On our recent-ish road trip down south we stopped at one of the big fish markets in Busan (it's a seafoody kind of town so there's a few of them). I could have happily spent hours there with my trusty Canon, snapping away, but I was traveling with Mr Attention Span Of A Gnat, Mr Impatient, and Mr Why On Earth Are You Taking A Photo Of That so it was not to be. Which may have been for the best as some of the stall holders were not overjoyed with my photographic interest, so moving on quickly proved fortuitous.
Anyway. Look at the colours! Notice how all the fishmongers are women? And they wear the most amazing outfits - bright pink rubber gloves, aprons in vibrant green and orange and red, layers and layers of clothing in floral patterns and blocked hues. And then there's the giant crabs and long fish, and those strange things that look a bit like dragon fruit but clearly aren't. Plus sting rays! Yes, sting rays! Have you ever seen a skinned sting ray before? Plus those rainbow umbrellas, and the pink and blue plastic trays everything sits in (I am most definitely getting me some of those). Wonderful stuff.
There'll be some more fish market magic somewhere on my Flickr, if you are so inclined.
