    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:





    Bread (the dark brown is a typical Asturian bread)




    Dried salted cod


    which most people want cut into smaller pieces..




    Pig's ears and snouts








    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!




    The leather man's stall


    Bells for cows, goats etc..


    ...and finally, walking sticks

    Bracelets and sweets

    For some reason two of the photos didn't appear in the post so I'll try again here.

    Colin, I feel hungry, although not for pigs bits thank you, but that bread looks fantastic.
