Photograph taken with a Canon EOS 1100D lent by a friend at the flea market Labruguière. Originally this picture is in color, but I thought a little old side would go well with the object and the background.
Background a bit truncated given the heterogeneous environment that day.
What do you think?.
A garage sale, also known as sellout, Réderie (Picardy), flea market, fair at all (Normandy), bric a brac, barter and chips or garage sale (québécisme) is a popular gathering at which individuals expose items that they no longer use (eg redundant) to get rid of them by selling them to visitors.
Garage sales can take place both on the highway as in halls, multi-purpose sports halls, function rooms etc.. Some restrictions may be imposed on sellers (also known exhibitors): food reserved for organizers ban sales of animals, weapons, etc.. The proposed properties are particularly varied: clothes, books, dishes, toys, records, furniture, etc..
In France there are also empty wardrobe, dressing or empty: devoted solely to selling clothes .... empty house or garage sale at home: because made in garages or private gardens and not in the public domain, they require a statement to the city ... and empty stroller: sale devoted to children's clothing.
Labruguière is a city located on Thore 75 km east of Toulouse, 7 miles south of Castres, sub-prefecture of the department.

good connection with mary & child statue of the church and the old baby carriage. sephia application is well suited to the scene which has no modern elements in it. makes me remember the staircase scene from the old movie battleship potemkin. the low POV gives a grandeur to the appeal, and this makes an interesting contradiction, as grandeur would be the last thing to associate with a baby carriage.

Salut Jean Philippe,
une riche idée de flâner sur les vides greniers le weekend! Une photo originale et bien composée. Excellent le traitement en N & B. Bien vu!

What a great POV to use, and the b/w works so well with the subjects. There is something about the baby carriage that makes me think of Potemkin!
You create a terrific effect - well done!
All the best,

Hello Jean Phillipe
I think your low point of view has given this shot real impact. I also think using sepia to age it in keeping with the age of the pram enhances the "story" of the shot.

Salut Jean Philippe
Une intéressante composition qui fait penser à une scène de Rosemary Baby
Intéressante perspective de cette photo prise à basse altitude :)

Bonjour Jean Philippe,
you made an original and interesting composition with a rare find. I like very much the strong upward perspective that allowed you to combine the old fashioned pram and the antique church building. I also like how you supported your creative idea by converting this unusual picture into a monochrome that makes it look decades old. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely Easter week,

That's a really nice place to visit with a camera! I like your low pov to show this charming old carriage and sepia seems an excellent choice.
