If I came to Saturday market, I was either looking for local crafts as gifts, or I came to purchase my favorite oyster mushroom which is not sold in regular grocery stores. On one of the very few trips I made, I brought my camera and I was aiming to take some tie-dye related pictures. I don’t care for the booths where they sell multitude of tie-dye T-shirts, dresses and skirts. I wish someone would design these garments a little bit and there is a better manufacturing technology to make these tie-dyed clothing, so they don’t always look like rags.
Patterns are fine, but I just don’t like the color combo on majority of the tie-dye clothes. There are too many bright blue, green, orange, yellow and red colors. I walked away from the clothing section and walked into the crowd. I stood by the traffic light scouting my targets. What caught my eyes the most were the pedestrians and the customers, people who enjoyed showing off their tie-dyed outfits while strolling along the market. Check out our Eugene tie-dye folks.
Use my camera, silverware from kitchen and a sheet of gift wrapping paper, I have created my own tie-dye Fork, Spoon and Knives, my bit of tie-dye fashion that I can pick up.
It is only through photography that I have the luxury to amuse (or tease) myself with these colorful forks and spoons. I wonder if I can sell this set of silverware to my folks here in Eugene. Oh, no, I am thinking business again, no, I am just making these up for my own entertainment. They have no commercial value, for your eyes only.
