The Coustellet market began as a peasant market years ago, where the farmers brought their beautiful vegetables, fruits, wines and other harvest foods.
Today it is a popular place for tourists also, and has expanded to include all sorts of antiques vendors and crafts people. It’s a happening event!
One Sunday I decided to aim my lens on creating a photo study I called Faces of France at the Coustellet market.
My favorite faces turned out to be the happy faces of these gorgeous sunflowers…they were definitely smiling, don’t you think?
