A few years ago now I realised that if I go someplace, and don't take a camera, I don't look at things. Or, more accurately, I don't really pay a great deal of attention to my surroundings: I just wander around, do what I'm doing, and the visual nature of my surroundings is definitely secondary to whatever else I'm doing at the time. When I do take a camera though, I see things differently.
And this shot is a good example: it's certainly not something I would have paid a great deal of attention too if I'd just happened to be walking through the market – I simply wouldn't have noticed the odd juxtaposition between the foreground and background.
That said, you might not see it either, but to me it almost looks like a bunch of flowers, possibly tulips, right up until you work out what it is you can see in the background.
Let me know what you saw first.
