A personal selection of photographs with their stories.
When I was walking in the historic center of Porto, I noticed many hawkers standing or sitting down at the pavement, trying to sell their merchandise. Most of them sold products, which they grew at home, or at their farm. Different kinds of fruit and vegetables, eggs, nuts. They had put their merchandise on simple crates, and some of them even made some more effort to arrange their vegetables and fruit in neat piles or pyramids. This older woman sat on the curbstones and waited patiently for her customes. A man in the corner of the photo appears to watch her.
