I've taken this photo in the market of Enfidha, a city not far from Zaghouan and Sousse. This market takes place every sunday and it has a big particularity, it doesn't have many tourists. Really, it has almost no tourists, except a few that sometimes stop there in the jeeps before going to the neighbour villages. Enfidha is not a touristic place and this market with lots of people is for locals, a really Tunisian market, with no handicrafts or all those stuffs that tourists use to buy in this country.What's amazing here is just to walk,always taking much care because the place is too crowded and watch the locals shopping. This is really authentic and worth seeing, believe me! You can find and see the most amazing things! In the middle of the fair, I found a man selling spices. He really caught my attention because he had so many different spices and it was really amazing to see. I decided to buy some packs of tea and he let me take all the photos I wanted. I wanted to buy tea anyway...
I took several ones but the best perspectives are not that good because of all those wires behind. I decided to choose this one and I'm posting also a wider perspective in the workshop, just for you to have an idea.

Hi Ana, thanks for posting this picture! It looks like great fun. Only problem is... if enough people see your picture then too many tourists might start to visit the market! :) I'll definitely try to visit it if and when I go back to Tunisia (when oh when?)

Olá Ana, as famosas especiarias que levaram os europeus aos mares na época das descobertas. Bela foto mostrando-as. O detalhe das pinturas são bem interessantes.

Very interesting picture from the market. I like the way you place the objects in order. And it looks neat. I like the way you compromise with the seller in order for your to take free pictures...this is interesting. Good work Ana. Sothy

Ces images un peu naïves ajoutent du charme à cette photo très colorée qui nous fait sentir les odeurs de ces différentes épices

Interessante fotografia, pelas cores, contrastes e posicionamento.
A ilustração da banca é um destaque à parte.

This is a interesting display of spices that I have not seen before. Loved the little touches that the vendor has made to his stall. When you want to sell something, you must attract as much attention as you can without being too aggressive and I would say he has done it nicely. Nice Angle that you have capture this shot.

Nice presentation of Tunisian everyday life. The originality is in the combination of real life and painted people.

i can almost smell the spices. nice display and good angle of capture. but the colors are a bit faded, you should lower your EV to maybe -1/3 expecially in hot places and sun, youll see a big difference. well done
