The West Side Market, Cleveland, Ohio is chock-a-block with vendors of produce, flowers, baked goods, meats, fish and all provisions needed for the family larder. In this day of mega-stores and super-duper markets it is wonderful to see this market, first established in 1912, still bustling with activity. The vendors often offer samples and the crowds are exceedingly polite as people wander through collecting their goods. Lindybird is a champion of ‘buy local, support local’ and following this practice helps reduce the carbon footprint by limiting fuels used to transport goods over great distances.

A child of the 50’s, a survivor of the 60’s, my main artistic outlets are stained glass and photography. I have operated my glass studio since 1976 and have works all over the U.S. I originally entered university to study photographic journalism, but as John Lennon wrote, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” I do not use PS or other manipulations in my photographs, just adjusted settings on the camera.

    Love this place! This is a perfect capture of a seemingly mundane moment in time, yet so important.

  • Thank you… I remember long ago studying to become a photojournalist at Kent State and training my eye to find small, yet powerful or poignant details within my viewfinder…. I appreciate that you noticed, but you always notice… XOXOX
