Yesterday Dan from McKinney TX Daily Photo commented on the Market clock photo: "Brilliant, vivacious red in this." He couldn't have known my photo for today would follow up that theme with this portrait I took of a Market vendor. I caught her in a thoughtful moment when she was taking a break and conversing with friends. Dressed all in black and with just the sides of her hair visible below her hat, I thought of the beautiful red winged black birds I have loved since childhood. Her lovely down turned eyes subtly echo a paler shade. It is good to see vivacious color in this gray week of clouds, and the creative people who make the Market such a pleasure for everyone to enjoy, rain or shine.
