Flea Market – Rose Bowl & Pasadena City College

Several years ago I began my flea market project. I didn’t know it was going to be a “project” when I started and my vision for this collection of photos continues to evolve. Here are few photos from my first early visits to the Rose Bowl Flea Market and the PCC Flea Market (both in Pasadena, California).
