People in the Market

These quick studies of locals in the outdoor marketplace in Santo Domingo were an attempt to capture the people in almost constant motion.  Some sat or stood still long enough for a quick capture; others continued walking and I tried to record their posture and attitude as quickly as I could.  The last two are quick studies while waiting at the gate at the Miami Airport.  Thanks to Melanie Reim, who pushed me to toss my felt-tip and to make use of the free-flowing lines of a fountain pen.
