Christmas pigs in the public market

Every year, before Christmas, Romanians use to sacrifice pigs. At the weekly market in my town, Onesti, Romania, a lot of gipsies looked for "the one" at a low price. I just took my camera and got into another world, where fear could have been read on children's faces, where women were trying to share their pointless opinions with husbands and a lot of men who were negotiating the price. Some pigs were moving among people as they had already got used to the crowd.
