Beauty and the beast

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 17 September 2009 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Just a couple of pictures on sale at a market stall in South Shields Market Place, the juxtaposition was quite extraordinary. These were the prismatic plastic types which appear to "move" dependant upon the angle at which you view them.

Pentax K100D, 82mm lens, 1/750 second, f6.7, iso 200
