I haven’t participated in Becky’s October Kinda Square challenge for awhile, so to make up for it I’m going to take a little shopping tour at Vienna’s Naschmarkt to see different kinds of things you can buy there!
Various kinds of vegetables
Various kinds of candies (and very different from the ones you usually find in the USA)
Various kinds of fruit – and being summer when I took these photos, there is a great variety of succulent, delicious fruits!
Many kinds of spices
This being an organized walking tour, there were various kinds of goodies for us to sample!
You can buy a variety of non-edible things there too, such as these dishes with different colors, shapes and kinds of decoration.
Markets are fascinating places to visit because you can find all kinds of things at them! So I think my next post for this challenge will feature other kinds of markets!
Sandy’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge topic this week is markets.
I love outdoor markets – we have a farmers’ market near us on Sundays which runs from June to October. Most of the farmers are from Michigan or southern Illinois. Of course, the items change with the seasons. This is a local farmers’ market in October.
It is fun and interesting to visit markets in other countries – both outdoor farmers’ markets and regular supermarkets. Following are market scenes I took on my recent travels.
Quebec City, Canada in October
Aswan spice market, Egypt, in January
Rishon le Tsiyon, Israel – these photos were taken at an (indoor) supermarket, in January
Tel Aviv, Israel – another supermarket, in January
Vienna, Austria – we took a special tour to this large outdoor market, called Naschmarkt, which sold a lot of other things besides food! In July
Not all markets sell food…
Here is the Daraw animal market in Daraw, Egypt, in January.
Another blogger (Rantings of a Third Kind) blogged a poem & beautiful cat photo in honor of International Cat Day! Here are some furry friends I’ve loved, played with, and photographed. (Click on photo to enlarge – several are partially cut off.)
Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #104 is about summer. Ah, summer! My favorite season of the year! Even with the distancing measures of Covid-19, I can enjoy the summer. (Imagine if the shelter-in-place had been in the winter – we’d REALLY get cabin fever!)
Two recent photos of our senior community that represent summer:
