Eugene Saturday Market

Day 4 of thesis cramming. Here are some photos from the Eugene Saturday Market, taken on the same trip home as the Bend photos.
market_1
The best part of the Saturday Market is the colors. Eugene is largely made up of retired hippies, so the Saturday Market is always a trip. One of the scenes in my book takes place here. I’m glad I got such a good variety of photos.
market_2
This photo technically didn’t turn out all that well. Too washed out with light, and it can’t be edited out (at least not by me) without looking very strange. I had to include it though, because I love both the hair and the depth of the composition, with a central figure so close in the foreground.
market_3
I was really tempted to buy a hula hoop, mainly because everyone seemed to be having a whole lot of fun with them. There’s an open area where people were sitting, dancing, and, yeah. Hooping.
market_4
I like how the spoons provide a screen.
market_5
I wish there weren’t crease marks on the blanket, but otherwise I’m pleased with this photo. I love that the woman on the left seems to be an extension of her creations.
market_6
Normally I try to blur out the faces of children in my photos, but this photo may be one of my all time favorites, mainly because of the little girl’s face. I feel like this is sort of ok since I actually have no idea who she is, but I realize that doesn’t actually make any kind of sense.
market_7
Again, love the hair, but also the hanging cranes just give the whole photo a really cool feel. Also, I’m a fan of the clever method of display.
market_8
The market has a main stage, but there were also random musicians roaming all over the place. I think it’s a shame that the guy on the right is wearing a T-shirt, the other guy fits the scene far better.
market_9
The tone of this woman’s skin mixes beautifully with her knitted dolls. I also really like the expression on her face and the way she’s looking off to the side.
market_10
I like the screen effect here again, but I mostly just think this is a great collection of funky, very Eugene, jewelry.
market_11
Such cool ornaments. Like the blue squid on the left especially.

Click on the photos for a larger version. More tomorrow.
