This will be my last upload for a couple of weeks or so as I'm going on holiday - yippee.
I am going laden down with camera equipment so hopefully will bring back some good shots of warm weather to keep me going through the cold winter.
Today's upload is of our local farmers market which is held once a month. To say it is full of characters is an understatement. You have to be really careful though as a lot of them don't like you taking photos and one chap actually came up to me and insisted on looking through my shots. If there were any of him he wanted them deleted !! Obviously he didn't want to be seen by anyone.
There are some real crusties there, a few unsavouries and some down right grotty and stinky. What I have to put up with for my art.
Well these three chaps were some of the nice ones, and were busy discussing the birds in the cages that were about to be auctioned.
The market auctions anything from rabbits, through geese, ducks, chicken and well anything that they can get in a cage basically.
The light in the place is none existent, so the inside is very dark and the outside is bright, so please excuse the quality as I had no choice but to point my camera at the outside and into the bright light.
The building is being pulled down soon to make way for a multi million pound development, so what they will do with the market I do not know. There is also talk of getting rid of the small weekly market as well - call that progress, I don't.
Hope your weekend is going well, thank you for stopping by and your continued support.
See you in a couple of weeks.
