    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:

    Nuts

    Dried salted cod

    which most people want cut into smaller pieces..

    Zips

    Pig's ears and snouts

    Garlic

    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!
