Photo Essay

My Flea Market find

time to celebrate with this little ball thingys!!!

What a bargain you can find at the flea market and I'm not talking about buying, but shooting photos.

I started the week not knowing what to post. Something got over me that I feel not motivated to upload any photo. Then I posted a very unusual entry. It was so unusual, that I titled it "I feel so" I thought it will be a teaser title. I just saw a comment from my previous entry by RV.."Vibrant" It was a coincidence because that was the word I was already thinking. Then RR spotlighted it to my surprise. I did not think anybody would like it. It was the start of this "great run". I really believe in the power of words. It just happened spontaneously. I got excited editing my previous photos of our trip to the flea market. Took those a while back and not really interested in posting them. Then I got motivated on editing and cropping them . I'm so grateful to the comments and fave left by friends and fellow jpgers. This does not only come out colorful but it was also fun and it keeps me motivated to come back and play the game again.

These shots were taken at the San Jose Flea Market, claimed to be the biggest in Northern CA.

I hope you find this photo series interesting.

    Thanks Jenny for the Avatar review. I haven't seen it yet. We planned to watch it last weekend but it was sold out! I'm a fan of James Cameron and watch the movie Titanic.
