Right, to ease me back into blogging again after a lengthy lay off, I am posting a little photo diary of this weekend’s trip to Copenhagen. It was savagely cold, in a way that the UK has not been so far this winter. The east wind goes through any layers you are wearing and eats its way into your very being. Copenhagen is a compact little city, with a lot of waterways, and a few very good real ale pubs. These shots were all taken with my little Samsung point and shoot camera, because we only took hand luggage and the big camera is too big!!
Some years ago, I stayed in Florence, Italy. I would get up early and wander down the road to the Central Market [Mercato Centrale] in order to buy a good espresso and also take photographs. I find markets fascinating and this is one of the best. The range and quality of the food on sale is second to none – what I would give to be able to shop there every week! Towards the end, there are some pictures of a flea market I came across as I walked the other side of the river Arno.
The pictures are a study of the colours, objects and people, because of course there is constant movement and constant trading. I shall not make a note against every photo this time. Also, these were all taken on a little point and shoot camera, great for immediate pictures. Note that my new large format of image doesn’t work here because these were small to start with, so small they will sadly stay!
…..and now the flea market:
