A Meat Treat

Posted by
grouser (Ludlow, United Kingdom) on 24 February 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Not the best picture I have ever taken. I'm so irritated with myself that, when composing it though the viewfinder, I cropped out half the meat purchasers foot. However worth including for its documentary element I thought because it seems such an odd way to sell meat. This is down in the village centre.

Two Hail Marys, a sound beating with a copy of the Sporting Times, 4 chants of atonement, and you'll feel a lot better! Don't beat yourself up-it's a great shot

Interesting "super. " Much easier to purchase ... in the great cultures unknown to our misfortune ... You can even live with a certain tranquility. Envy from our global and local culture! A hug, Adela

Very interesting street shot - I think it's a fine composition with so much to see in the frame.

Like a mobile Marks and Spencer . . I'd swear that was Stuart Rose under the hat.

It's a great documentary photo so I shouldn't worry too much about the foot.

@Mike: I'm resigned. Nothing short of surgery will fix it :)

Can you imagine a butcher doing business like this in the UK?
Daft thing is, I bet none of them ever get food poisoning at all because their immune systems are probably better tuned than ours. We used to chew coal when we were kids.
Nice shot Grouser, makes me want to rant at all of the H&S regulations we have!

J'aime bien de découvrir sur une image ce que l'on ne voit pas au premier coup d'oeil! Ici, il y a cette jeune femme en bleu, accroupie avec l'enfant ...
Bonne journée lumineuse et chaleureuse!

A fine street shot of an improving street vendor. That is a novel way to present meat for sale. Colorful street setting too.

A good street image, and very interesting for the differences between societies. I envision flies and other insects all over that portable butcher shop display, but it does look fresh and edible. (depending what it is... ha)

@Rick: No Idea. It's very dark and pretty fat free. No flies. Hardly one the whole trip to my amazement.

It is an odd way to sell meat and I hope you weren't tempted to eat it.....still a colourful street shot.

Everything is disorienting when you travel. I was always wondering why asian people shot so many pictures when they come to Paris or France, I did exactly the same (maybe even more) when I went and visit overthere :))))
Great shot !!!

You're forgiven for the slight oversight :0 But it is an excellent shot grouse; the content is more important than formalities in my book.
