This is a black and white photograph taken at a flea-market. The image shows a man in a graphic print shirt standing at center among a pile of objects. A second man appears in the foreground at right slightly out of focus balancing a box of items and a tire on his shoulders. A bus fills the background of the image, and four children hang out the bus windows at upper left in the composition.
