Street Market


I've arrived back with a wonderful souvenir of my UK trip: a streaming head cold. I can't see, can't think, certainly can't taste anything but when I reviewed my photos this made me smile mainly because the paintings are so colourful but also because the one to the far right that you can't see (because I didn't take it) was really quite explicit albeit in a cartoonish style.

Street markets are very popular and most sectors of the towns and the villages have at least one a week. This seemed to be a mostly second hand book, paintings and photo market. Interesting to browse though it's too hot really to linger for long.

These are so fun. They made me smile too. If I may.... the belly buttons are hilarious!

These are original! I have to admit I am also curious about the one you aren't showing, but I do admire your restraint!

I hope you are feeling much better soon!

If these what you can show it beggar's belief what you can't. This is one strange artist. What else would you expect as a momento from the UK but a cold.
