It was at sunday late afternoon on my way back to Munich when I decided by chance to make a short break at Wasserburg. The last time I stopped there is 15 years ago. I can’t remember that the town is so lovely. I typically medieval town with nicely renovated old houses.
Fortunately there was a monthly market that afternoon.
I liked the posture of this guy. He sold willow catkin (I’m not sure if the translation is correct) as a common pre easter decoration in Bavaria.
I asked him for a portrait and he accepted immediately and asked wheter he should have a surprised, unconcerned or posed look. We tried the unconcerned look.
After the portrait session I bought a branch of willows from him.
