The Bailan Market was not so crowded, but it was not deserted. There were enough shoppers in the market to keep calm. Shoppers were walking in the market at a leisurely pace. Well, there's no reason for the market to be so crowded because it's a plain local market.
This was my third visit to Taipei, but the first time to visit here. However, I felt nostalgic when I walked here. It was strange. I had never seen a market like this one in my neighborhood.
When I walked on the street in the market, I passed many people. Even if I had a camera, almost no one would notice it. They're all buried in their everyday lives. Nevertheless, some of them noticed my camera. The old man in this photo and his grandkid also seemed to have noticed my camera. The grandfather was walking leisurely as we rubbed past each other with his grandkid in his arms. Both the grandfather and the grandkid were staring intently at my camera as we passed each other with the camera at the ready.
