These pictures were taken at our recent visit to the Vintage Market in the local town
I remember clamouring for rides on roundabouts when I was young, although they were a little more grown up than the one in the picture. My Dad used to take me to a fairground but he wouldn't or couldn't go on the roundabouts with me. Instead he would ask people already on there if I could sit with them. He would wave to me every time I passed while I jigged up and down with excitement. One time he asked an American soldier if I could sit by him (soldiers were stationed not far from us at the time). He was a lovely man. I remember him remarking on my freckles (I had plenty) and explaining they were there because the sun had kissed me, adding that the sun only kissed beautiful people. Oh boy, I'll never forget that man!
I just had to capture this picture. The young mother was making soothing noises to her baby and I could feel the love. Pity I couldn't see the baby.
What is it about walking feet that makes us want to take photographs?
We had lunch in the Bottle of Sack.... don't you think that's a strange name?
Handmade soap. The bars are a little large, don't you think?
Although it said Father's Day gifts, I couldn't see any.
This is a new addition to the mall. Shop on-line, get your parcels delivered here. It's the latest idea for parcel deliveries. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but isn't the idea of ordering on-line to get stuff delivered to the house? I couldn't be bothered collecting from a metal machine in the shopping centre, especially if I'd ordered a three piece suite! The ByBox thingy is situated in a crowded area with limited space. Can you just imagine the chaos if someone actually used it, not to mention parcel snatchers!
