Photo of the Day (11/23/07)

Today’s Photo of the Day was selfishly plucked from my own camera during a recent trip to China.

After a full day of wandering around Shenyang and not really finding too much to see or do, I happened upon an outdoor market that stretched for many blocks just off one of the main boulevards.

Locals always stare at me strangely when I take photos of their produce and goods but I always find it so fascinating I can’t resist. Case in point, I’m not exactly sure what the sacks in the above photo might be, perhaps some spices, but I do know that I never would see such a sight in my local grocery store at home. And so I pulled out the camera and clicked.
