Tomatoes!


Earlier I reported that Immokalee is an inland agricultural area and a big producer of tomatoes.
Immokalee has an active farmers market every day.
This man was selling tomatoes.
He saw the camera, sat up straight and posed.  How easy was that?

I love a guy whose happy to have his photo taken! Amazing how the tomatoes are all the same size so pack together so evenly.

I like this shot. Whenever I see people selling colorful vegetables and fruit along the roadside, I want to stop and take pics…but, haven't gotten motivated enough. Yet. I love that this guy was quick to strike a pose -- and you were just as quick with your shutter.

Love it! Beautiful shot Jack.

And, he has a very friendly smile! Did you buy any of those good looking tomatoes? I have a really hard time finding a tomato that tastes like the tomatoes I loved so much growing up in Illinois.

Too easy Jack :) but then again you always make portrait shots look easy.. I see the makings of much tomato soup here :)

Great shot! A more dedicated person than I would see this and have tomato canning in their future. The best I can manage is thinking about BLTs and lots of salad.

A snap, as they say.

We had some very good local tomatoes at dinner tonight but they had to have been grown in a hothouse. We are a little warmer than CT but far cooler than FL.

If I say 'what huge tomatoes' it manages to sound a little rude... Great portrait of the tomato man.
