I had the camera along in downtown Lancaster, PA and walked through the Central Market – the oldest operating farmers’ market in America.

A photographer friend and I had a free afternoon and did a short photo walk for some creative inspiration.  Contrary to the popular view that creativity thrives best without limitations, sometimes the best exercise to get the creative juices flowing is to work within strict limitations.  For example, choosing to only shoot with a single fixed focal length (35mm, 50mm, etc.) or just shoot b/w.

Fresh bread at farmers' market reminded me of the bread back in Switzerland.
