Only one street back from the seafront, Cours Saleya is a mainly-pedestrianized street/square which hosts a daily market. It is split between its famous flower market selling bucketfuls of blooms in the western half, and a magnificent food market at the eastern end, with long trestle tables displaying exotic spices, shiny fruit and veg, pastries, fruits glacés (glazed or candied fruits such as figs, ginger, tangerine and pears) and more.
Lined by restaurants and cafes, it is the perfect place for breakfast, to sip coffee and people-watch, or for after dark, when the market is closed and the outdoor seating from the restaurants expands to fill the square.

Beautiful combination of shapes and colours. The morning light is just perfect.
I really like the point of view you chose which enabled you to create this unique composition.

Marvelous mix of colors over the market stalls, and the nice parasols above.
City street life well collected, good clarity and light.

Hello Jason, You spot this scene very well and use a lovely crop to isolate it. I miss some sharpness in the image. The use of another f/ could prevent this but maybe some PP work kan help. The colorful and graffical view is strong and very plesant.
