At Shilin Night Market by John Martin II

This remarkable street photograph was taken at the Shilin Night Market in Taiwan by John Martin II. It is such a great photograph full of spontaneity and life. It captures a moment with a sense of poetry which is what great street photography does. You can take hundreds of photographs and come up with only one that is as good as Night Market in Shijin. I love that the products (in such bold, sticky red) are foregrounded, but the seller is blurry in the background. This photograph leaves a strong impression on the viewer. It is so rich and deep that you can almost hear the sounds of the market in the background. 

John C. Martin II is not a professional photographer, but you can see many of his excellent photos on his facebook page here:
