Finding Inspiration at a Farmer's Market

Your mom was right: fruits and veggies are good for you. (And so are flowers!) They're also good for igniting your creativity. Need proof? Take a peek at the dizzying array of colors, forms and textures you'll find at any farmers market....as I did recently at the Saturday Farmers Market in Santa Fe, New Mexico:

Chile ristras glow bright red in the clear morning light


It's a social occasion for both growers and customers.


Just look at these lively color combinations! (Love those red shoes!)



These sunflowers were HUGE -- the size of dinner plates!




Who could resist capturing these dazzling colors?

There's nothing like a farmers market to wake up your senses and summon your Muse. What are you waiting for? Grab your camera and go!
