Weekly Photo Challenge : Threes

On a trip to South Africa last year, we went to the Saturday Farmers’ market near Knysna.   This market is a great gathering place for all the locals, both local stall holders who sell food, flowers, vegetables, arts and crafts, jewellry, and anything else you care to mention, and the local people who come to browse and buy, and to

use the opportunity to catch up with all friends and family.

There was a great variety of food on offer, and lovely teas and coffee, but as you can see, in the end a lot of us went with the old favourite – the full Irish South African!

Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge : White and Purple

This week Cee has challenged all aspiring photographers to submit photos which are white and purple, or either colour.   I went through my photos and found a few purple ones, here they are:

The first photo is one of my walking boots and socks, abandoned after a  fairly steep walk in the Dolomites, Italy.    We stopped for lunch, and it was great to sit and relax and wiggle my toes without the constraints of boots.

These boots, and socks, were made for walking

Purple flowers always look very relaxing with the sunshine on them, and the wild flowers and bougainvillea around Lake Garda are very pleasant.

The picture below was taken at a farmers’ market in Knysna, South Africa, with some home grown aubergines (known as eggplant in some countries) and the different shapes and sizes, and the rich colour, make them very interesting.

My last photo was taken outside the Grand Canal Theatre in Dublin, where we went to see the Lion King, and thoroughly enjoyed it, in fact the audience was mostly adults when we were there, and everyone loved it.
