Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects

Tourist magnate would be one of my first descriptions of London’s Sunday UpMarket at the old Truman Brewery. It is clearly an un-kept secret in London. One can see how the masses would be drawn to such an exciting market with close to 150 booths displaying wares such as hand-made jewelry, vintage clothing, trendy women’s wear and accessories, leather goods and unique styles for men. Then there is the famous culturally diverse food section with you name it … Sri Lankan, Thai, Ethiopian, Japanese, Mexican, Chinese, Brazilian and Caribbean foods at a price you can afford! The market is a big draw for the East London hipsters and was a totally enjoyable attraction for us more conservative types …

My favorite part of the day was wandering away from the crowds onto Hanbury Street and taking pictures of all the amazing street art. This one with two faces from opposing political parties by Ben Slow was one of my favorites. One from the English Defense League and the other from an Islamic extremist group.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Arranged

I was excited about this challenge because we are traveling overseas and I knew I would be taking a lot of photos. We are in Istanbul now and here is what I came up with … They sell the chestnuts as fast as they are arranging them on the heated surface. I would write more but I think it is about 12:30 am and we are getting up early tomorrow.
By the way, the chestnuts were delicious!
