Weekly Photo Challenge: Humanity

One of my favorite places to people watch is at the farmer’s market.  There’s such a variety of people, from young families to old women using food stamps.  The farmer’s have their own stories as well.  Some farm full-time, others are helping their parents or grandparents, and some are doing it on the side to…
