Food photography Inspired by the supermarket

Last year I remember in New Year's evening my brother and me went shopping to a Mexican supermarket, I was so impress how they organized the food and I did a short photo shot instead of shopping. I love the colors and the way they expose them. In a few minutes a create a gallery of wonderful photos of veggies.
