The Mercado do Bolhão has been about to close many times. With fewer and fewer customers, there are less sellers like this lady who sells local produce, often at a better value than the local supermarket. The lack of customers in an economic crisis is wearisome, as seen in this woman’s expression. And so we reach the last day of this photographic journey of my past year. What a ride! This project has taught me a lot. Perseverance. There were times where it got difficult. There were times where it seemed like there was no option but to quit or give up. …
With the onset of winter, the rain will bring the snow, and with it comes the storm. This lady embraces the weather but not with the best of spirits.
After what must have been long days and a long week, this older man stands pensively waiting for the bus in Geneva.
