I recently attended the Elephant’s Truck Flea Market in New Milford, CT and couldn’t resist snapping a few photos. Ok, so i took 183 photos, but here I will only share 47 (i have editing issues). (-:
i really can’t help myself. The camera just starts clicking away. I occasionally share my flea market adventures here. They are a huge source of inspiration and i always go home wanting to create.
The vendors are so interesting and lovely, with their sun-ripened skin and tired smiles. i was dying to photograph some of the people we encountered, but i don’t have the nerve. I don’t even know the polite and professional way to go about that. I should google it i suppose.
For now, we’ll enjoy these images of some of the treasures i saw, and think about the stories they could tell. I wonder who owned that… I wonder who made that… I wonder what countries it has traveled to… My head spins with all the wondering!
I always find a few things that i must have, and i usually end up spending way more than i should. But seriously it’s the items that choose me. I merely hand over the adoption fees.
I predict you might see one or more of these particular treasures posing gracefully in Little Orange Studio…
Do you know of a great flea market? Please share! I have an imaginary road-trip to plan!
