The market in the old town of Monastir is really worth seeing. Many people are there in the narrow passages and sales rooms at work. Here food is sold for daily use ..... especially fresh vegetables, meat and fish.
Here is the black and white version of the market scene.

Great daily life candid. Nice idea to present it in monochrome which gives it a timeless feel - it could have been taken yesterday or 30 years ago. Briliant timing and I really like the expressions on people's faces.

There is a sudden outburst of activity from you :-). There is also a lot of activity at this market place. I don't know what the original colours were like, but the B&W version is perfectly fine with me. I can hear the salesman to the left trying to convince the woman that his fish are the freshest available and that she can't find them cheaper anywhere else.

una foto viva, sembra di sentirne le voci.
Ottima la scelta del b&w, sottolinea meglio le espressioni stampate sui volti di queste persone.

a well composed market scene. There is a circle of figures that allows us to view the fish as if we are customers ourselves. The woman anchors the shot and the fishmonger on the placed on the left creates a good diagonal line between himself and the woman customer.Perhaps I would have cropped just a little more from the top to get rid of minor distractions. Black & white looks good.

Hi Wolfgang. Interesting expressions, everyone looks rather grim. But then shopping is usually an onerous task. Nice effect with B&W. Excellent sharpness. Regards. Klaudio.

What I like about this photograph is its ordinariness: unromantic setting, monochrome documentary style, generally unanimated workaday expressions, and everyday activities, buying and selling. A real "tranche de vie".

A diferente photo of Tunisia!
The fish market seems a very busy place - they don't even seem to notice you. Good in b&w! I like the pov and the daily scene!
