Rainy Siouxland Farmers Market, Sioux City

15 Oct

Most people like to get out and shoot photographs on bright sunny days. And I like that too, sometimes. But there are some days, rainy days, well maybe kind of rainy days when it is not pouring buckets, that nice photographs can be made and turn out well. I visited the Sioux City, Iowa, Farmers Market over the weekend. A lot of good produce at the market, healthy produce like vegetables, as well as those enticing desert produce like cakes and pies and jams. About mid-morning not a lot of shoppers had shown up. It was quiet, which might be good for shoppers, but not for the small organic farmers who toil in good and bad weather to bring their produce to the market. But the day made for taking nice photographs. On overcast days, the flat light and lack of shadows can enrich colors and create a different mood than shooting on bright sun shiny days which also create deep shadows. Some shoppers enjoyed the quiet shopping time and also the produce available. The rainy day market reprints and previous photos can be found here.
