    Today is market day in the small town about 2km from where I live, called, rather quaintly, 'Piedras Blancas' (White Stones). I took photos of the stalls - mainly for their colour. It was quite difficult as it was very busy and finding a gap in the crowd took some patience!
    All taken with an E-PL1 on 'P', unretouched but several cropped in ACDSee.

    This is the man I bought my leather from to make the sling and wrist strap (see Neck straps etc... in 'Accesories' if interested. He's buying from another stall.

    And now, in no particular order:

    Cheese

    Scarves

    These are the three main ingredients in the archetypical Asturian dish 'Fabada' - a bean stew with spicy sausge and black pudding. Absolutely delicious - but lethal!
