"A Stranger in a Strange Land"

Pepper display in the open market in Bairro Peixoto in Copacabana.

The open-air market in Bairro Peixoto in Copacabana quickly became one of my favorite haunts
& a great place to buy food as well. The food and the people provide endless subject matter for photos. I am sure people wondered why I take so many photos in the market but many of my favorites from Brazil came from trips to various markets.

Make sure you try the tapioca with coconut and condensed milk when you visit this market.

The photo was taken with a Nikon F100 film camera using a 28-200mm f 4.5 Tamaron lens. The film used for this image is FujiPress 800. The approximate exposure is f 8 @ 1/250th second.

This image was featured in my recent shows as a 13" x 19" / 33cm x 48cm digital print. Prints available for purchase.
