Colours and textures

As children, many of us are fascinated by the colours and textures of the world around us.  I think one of the challenges of a photographer is to rediscover that childlike delight in the spectrum of colours that surround us, and the tactile nature of so much that we would otherwise pass by.  To be honest, rediscovering a delight in what we see is probably a good lesson for anyone, irrespective of whether they take photographs!

For today’s picture, I have to give at least half the credit to my partner, who spotted this “scene” as we were strolling around a Paris street market back in May.  It was the contrast of bright green and orange which made the image cry out to be taken, along with the slightly wrinkled skin of the carrots alongside the hairy fronds of the spring onion roots.  It makes me think of eating – which in turn, makes me happy!
