Tuesday Photo Challenge: Groceries

Frank’s theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge is in one sense a little out of the ordinary, but in another way could hardly be more mundane – ‘groceries’. So here are some groceries that are a little out of the ordinary: a basket of coloquintes (gourds) that I spotted at an open-air market in the town of Chabanais. They’re nothing if not colourful.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Delicious

The freshly-caught sea bass on display at the Rialto fish market in Venice looked absolutely delicious.

The glass roof

The glass roof of the covered open-air vegetable market in the city of Chartres is replete with symmetrical lines and angles to meet Cee’s theme for this week (and works particularly well in monochrome).

Tuesdays of Texture: Octopus

This week, a bit of the yuck factor. It’s not to everybody’s taste – certainly not mine (and I’ve tried it) – but there’s no doubt that octopus does have a distinctive texture, even if it’s not one you would go out of your way to feel. Or eat.

This example was photographed on a stall in the Fish Market near the Rialto Bridge in Venice, so at least you can assume it was fresh.
