A Lively Street Market in La Paz | 拉巴斯花果街市

in HIVE CN 中文社区2 months ago (edited)





In today's post, I'm going to show you a lively street market in La Paz of Bolivia, inspired by Deranged Photography Contest's Street Photography. I adore this theme, and you? He runs these contests on Liketu, each week with a different theme. Check them out if you would like to join the fun!

I just realized it's already Saturday here, and I was too busy to post yesterday; otherwise, this could also be a marketfriday post :). Anyway, let's take a look at this market now. I discovered it while wandering around the city. The stands selling fresh produce and flowers were spread out along a few streets that went up and down (the city stands over a canyon at an altitude of almost 4,000 meters).

The vibrant colors of the market, combined with the colorful costumes of the locals, are a sight to behold. At last, I bought some "super sweet grapes from Tarija" (seen in the second photo here), very sweet indeed.:)

The ice cream stand in my head image here has the name Illimani, with a snowcapped mountain logo. Mount Illimani, at over 6,000 meters, is Bolivia's second-highest peak. I saw it dominating La Paz's skyline from various vantage points. Lovely name for the ice cream!

The surrounding buildings and mountains created a unique setting for this bustling market, which is why I included them in some of my photos. If you want to see more of the cityscapes, here is a post I once did. I took the photo below at night from a cable car, with Mount Illimani in the background. As I previously said, Bolivia is a photographer's dream. Its magnificent wild nature and fascinating rich culture never cease to amaze me.
