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.
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).
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.
