Today I decided to checkout the local wholesale flower market. Unfortunately, not much was left by the time I reached (at 6:45 am ).

This man was so busy preping his lotus blooms that there was almost a buzzing feel to him.


Few roses


and a pile of leaves
(banana leaves are used for various traditional purposes such as steaming baskets, plates etc.)

Paan or beetle nut leaves (used as a mouth freshner)

That doesn't look like any pile of leaves I've ever seen, of course, I'm not used to seeing a pile of neatly folded banana leaves. ;) Interesting set.

is it just me or my photos are looking fuzzy and soft?

(I think something is wrong with the way picasa uploads my photos)

I really like shot 1, it has a great sense of depth and I like the motion in the shot.

sometimes compression takes out some sharpness.
the first one is a real eye-catcher.

Some thing really draws me to the banana leaves. . . . Amazing work!
