Once every 6 days a livestock market comes to Rantepao, many buffalos and even more pigs, trussed up ready for transport, are sold.

A typical south-east Asian scene. Interesting details and very good colours.

Nicely composed lineplay. The expression of the man's face in combination with the pigs brings a smile on my face...
Added you to my favs
All the best

Dat vastgebonden varken (en al zijn vrienden naast hem), geweldige detail in de foto. Zonder hem zou het ook iets zijn, maar nu geeft dit voor de echte essentie van zo'n markt weer...schitterend. Partij voor de dieren zal er niet happy mee zijn, maar die zijn dan ook niet aktief in Indonesie ;-)
Technische uitvoering is perfect in kleur, detailering en scherpte...prima werk.
Fijne zondag, Henk

You really found a good place to make splendid daily life photos. Marketplaces are full of unconventional scenes, and when it is taking place in far east, you get incredibly authentic details. You were almost invisible here, they are not intimidated by you nor your reportage. Very natural scene of great low POV, and the tied pigs are superb details.

I like this market scene with the pigs waiting to meet their fate. Great light, and off centre placement of the men who seem unaware of you making for a good documentary image.

A wonderful image of typical daily life scene in many parts of Asia. I have been aways for so long, I can barely handle this kind of image. When in I was in Laos, they stop our bus to load 30 or so pigs up to the roof of our bus, I couldn't look at them being tight up and dragged around in merciless maner, the sound of them was deafening and hard to bare. Such is the way of life in many places still, no judgement.
