Spotted {@} The Brooklyn Flea

So one of my favorite flea markets ever (besides the Eastern Flea Market in D.C.) is the Brooklyn Flea, where I like to stock up on lovely one-of-a-kind accessories from time to time. That trek to New York isn't always feasibly though, so when I heard Brooklyn Flea would be hosting a market in Philly every sunday this summer I was stoked! I already had my Nikon on me yesterday from doing baby dedication photography at my church and was eager to keep snapping with my rented 85 mm lens (which I love by the way). The flea market had a nice vibe, a little more chill than the Brooklyn one. There were quite a few vintage clothing, jewelry and furniture resellers there. I also met a few awesome people I definitely plan on keeping in touch with! 
The "steez" got me with these too. Confident, casual, stylish. Original. I had to see what they were up to. The bearded man is Hamid Holloman and he's a multi-talented renaissance man of sorts, a visual artist in every sense of the word-painting, interior layouts, outdoor advertising, you name it. He also sells amazing one-of-a-kind custom and vintage pieces. There was just a natural coolness about him. For more about Hamid check out his website {here} and instagram @Hamid_Holloman
Then I ran into the two ladies below, talk about personal style! Come to find out they're also bloggers! Jody, on the left, runs a great fashion blog entitled Red Bag Report (I looove her outfit posts!) and Aya, on the right blogs at I Don't Do Clubs for things to do outside of the club scene in Philadelphia, which is right up my alley!

How cool is he? Love how the stripped shirt looks with the tats.

I usually don't edit street style pictures (too much work), but I did just a little post-processing with these and love how they turned out! What do you guys think?

Geek info: All photography shot by me with nikon D90 + 85 mm  f/1.4D lens.
