Colours From A Market - My Sweet Shot Tuesday Link 31/05

I had the pleasure of flying to Newcastle last weekend, the main objective being to see 'Take That' in concert. The evening was everything it was built up to be but that's just the background to this piece.

Coloured Beads
Because of the flight times we had a whole day to kill on the day following the concert, so after taking advice we took ourselves off on the tram to Tynemouth.

When we got off the tram we were confronted by the most amazing Sunday market full of all sorts of new and second-hand goods, so while the ladies in the party took themselves off to see what was what I took out my camera and started looking for some images that I would enjoy looking back on.

The beads above were on a stall run by the good folk from Bubbly Beads and they were good enough to let me take some shots for a photo story which I'll publish sometime soon


My objective was to find colours, fill the frame and most of all practice manual focus, yes that's right, practice manual focus.

These are some of my favourites. What do you think?

  1. The photo of the beads is my favourite. The beads were so very small and perfectly formed - you have captured their colours and patterns beautifully.

    I love the railing - it adds to the atmosphere of the busy Sunday market all situated under the old railway canape.

    The cupcakes look good enough to eat!

  2. My favourite is the middle one - really captures the vibrancy of the market. As for the other two, they just make me wish I was one of the lucky ladies exploring and shopping!
