Fish Market Girl

Posted by Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 1 July 2013 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

If you ever visit Bergen in Norway a visit to the Fish market is an absolute must, there's so much going on and for a photographer you don't know where to point your camera next.
This girl was serving someone and seemed so animated telling the customer about the fish she was selling.


Unfortunately I don't seem to have as much time as I would like at the present to get on AM3, but I am putting shots on from time to time and will try to visit others when I can.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
