Vintage...or not

This is one of my favorite "everyday" scenes as it could have been taken anywhere in Ecuador. I confess, it is not in Quito but rather at a HUGE fruit market on the way to the beach (aka: the Pacific Ocean) near Esmeraldas, Ecuador. As mentioned in an earlier post though, fruit markets are everywhere! This is the time of year when people leave for the beaches in droves as there are various holidays celebrated during this season.

I like this picture because it could have been taken years and years ago, or just recently - it seems timeless. But...for the record, I took it this spring. :)

You're right, this shot looks as if it could be from a 1956 National Geographic.
