    Love the shot. I sure would not want to try and bargain with this lady.
    Looks like a market with real contrasts. The nice traditional scarves right next to the sports shoe section. :-)

The story behind "Russian lady selling woolen scarves on the market"

Some women had elaborate market stands, others were just sitting, wearing their goods, like this old Babushka selling finely woven woolen scarves.
Tomorrow I will show you what the woman that is approaching from behind – at least one generation difference – was selling :)
