Some Like it Hot

By mrswoolybill
The Sizzling Noodles stall at York’s Continental Market. Wisely, they didn’t specify which continent...
This is not a digital contrivance, the lettering was part of the banner over the stall - ‘Noodles with vegetables’, or something like that; see Version 2 for the original shot before cropping and straightening etc.
Anyway, those noodles were sizzling hot, and the lady was suitably wary of them.
Have a good weekend, and thanks for looking.

Like this a lot, lovely candid and the inclusion of the banner is a nice touch. She does look wary doesn't she? As you say, very wise I think!

Would we believe that you would digitally contrive anything Moira? Excellent candid and a good transformation from original. Good work to lighten the shadows on the face. Like that hat!

This is a wonderful candid Moira.
The look on her face made me chuckle.
The size of that pan, it's no wonder she's wary, she could fall in there & disapear Smile
You have captured some amazing colours here & that banner positioned as it is, could not have been better if you had put it there yourself.

This is a fantastic candid Moira!

You sure are good at these. You seem to have an eye for lots of colour and compositions containing lots to look at.

Oh bums, looks like I missed it this year and I love these markets.
Great shot Moira, that pot looks huge and she does look quite worried by it.
Nice one. Annette

What an enormous platter! The first one is definately favourite..I am never sure whether I fancy sampling food made in this manner! An excellent composition Moira.

I do like noodles,but perhaps too many for me to tackle here.Plenty colour and detail here Moira.I do love the hat,but that could be the ''French connection''.Kinda have a soft spot for your ''French'' pics.

Very interesting image. My partner would love a pan like that. As it is, his paella dish burns the cooker knobs, it's so big.

I'll be brief: It's a great candid shot, love her expressions and all the lovely pictures on the wall behind her, and I am strangely drawn to verions #2 - so I'm the odd man out. Hee!
