    1. i locked it up with this weird high-strength cable thing that cost more than my last bike. also, the bike has no apparent value to the grubby little urchins that stole my last one. not branded you see.

  2. I really do like this style of narrative told through photos.

    I hope that you didn't actually lose your bike.

  3. Gorgeous! I love the farmer's markets you have there. Ours are a crying shame. The produce always looks like it fell off the truck and bounced a few times before it arrived at the market! It's horribly over priced, too! Also, I hope no one stole your bike. Here, if it isn't bolted down, it will be swiped, no matter what it is! No letter box is safe, no street sign either! (And people wonder why I'm so keen to get out of here!) Pictures 5,6 and 7 are my favs! Can't wait to plant my winter bulbs and make some wholesome soup! :) ♥

    1. its not a bad market, most the customers look like they fell off a truck and bounced into town too. the only sad part is the overpriced-rent that the stall holders have to pay.

    2. I agree! It's terrible, considering how much the country relies on it's farmers.

  4. You keep losing your bike, I keep losing my car. No kidding.

  5. The marketplace reminds me of my 4 years in Croydon, all the farmers shouting their deals and prices while competing with others. Man that was a hoot, other than that though the hustle and bustle of the place was what really got me. It made the town look so uncivilised because everyone was so peppy and good natured there.

    Plus the high street wasn't far so lots of stores there, nothing special about it but it was home for a while. :)

    1. our market traders used to shout and sing and joke and banter,, then they all started selling for a pound a bowl. it all stopped. there is still hustle and bussle, but no singing.

  6. Eyebrow threading? Sounds like some sort of bizarre torture method.

  9. Wow... Is this meant to be contemporary art? I once attended a exhibition solely of camera phone pictures. Very special. Thought it was illustrating for our modern society.
