Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

The above photos of exotic fruits were taken at a local market in Costa Rica.
Whenever I travel, I make it a point to visit the neighborhood market away from the usual tourist spots. It offers a glimpse of local life as you see people meet and shop for their food and everyday needs. As I roam around the place, I always find some great photo opportunities here and there, but I tend not to be trigger happy and take a shot of everything that moves. It feels like intruding into people’s privacy. Besides, doesn’t taking pictures get in the way of enjoying the moment? Darn, I won’t be able to make a living as a paparazzi.
To a capable photographer, local produce and other inanimate objects can breathe life and tell stories. I guess I’m not there yet. I still have a lot to learn. You can consider me green (pardon the pun) in that regard.
