The Midtown Market is filled with people buying and selling an incredible variety of international foods. I am impressed by the diversity of the products and the patrons bustling about the marketplace. These people all have an entirely unique background, yet they are all gathered here in the same premise. They have this unique opportunity to experience the crowd around them and to share this moment of life with the people around them. They fill the atmosphere of the market with energy.
In my mind energy represents the quantity of activity, either potential or immediately occurring, contained in any entity. Energy is present in abundance in places like the Midtown Market where people from all over congregate. The energy in the market is created when the people walk in. It is used whenever the people present are prompted into action, perhaps when they are drawn to a certain product or when they become engaged in conversation. It is transferred between people as they buy, sell and converse. Every time people interact they leave a little bit of themselves and their story behind with their acquaintances.
