Chennai Flower Market

What impresses me while traveling to other countries is that you shop in a market not a “super market.”  I become creatively inspired by the colors, textures, and scents of fresh produce, flowers, legumes and spices that are unique to a specific region. 

Here are some of my pictures capturing the kaleidoscope of colors and textures at the wholesale flower market in Chennai, India.  The tropical flora at this south Indian market is stunning:  Perfect subject matter for a photograph.
