Abu Dhabi Fish Market

Arrived at the Abu Dhabi fish market a bit after dawn, and the fishermen were just back from sea with their daily catch. These were then sold to the whole traders and brought to the wholesale fish market. A colorful, lovely (and stinky) experience! It was hard to believe that we were so close to the city centre - the place was like a step back in time.
I usually use my Canon 5D Mark II, but it turns out that my Leica works brilliantly for these kind of shots.
I don't usually post more than a few photos in a gallery, but I took a different approach for this one in order to share the vibrant hustle and bustle of this place with you. There are more photos to come, please stay tuned.
