Continuing with my experimentation with street photography in Madrid, I took some shots at the Mercado de San Miguel.
I love shooting in markets. The colors, the people, the layers, all of it. Located near the Plaza Mayor de Madrid, the Mercado is a great place to stop for a bite to eat.
You can get produce, pastries,
tapas, beer and wine. Notice the black hooves on these hams. Yesterday I talked about jamón ibérico so you know what these are quality hams. This man is an expert in carving the ham. He better be, this ham is selling for 16.5 euros per 100 grams!
Below are two shots from a paella vendor. The large pans on the left and arroz negro (black rice) on the right. This is classic dish made with squid and squid ink.
If you’re a foodie, head for Plaza de San Miguel as there are lots of eateries in the area.
