Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #8: COLORFUL
First things first. Apologies to Tina and all Lens Artists fellow-bloggers for MB’s correct spelling of the word ‘colour’ in his post title. Seems that ever since you guys threw all that tea into Boston harbour (not ‘harbor’) (& the cost of which you still owe to the Brits), the spelling zone of your brains has been fried, for want of a decent cup of tea perhaps?! And MB doesn’t give a fig for the Webster’s English Dictionary. The WED is a Yankee creation, is it not? And in the opinion of MB, a mere smokescreen for the Yankee misuse of ‘or/our’ and ‘s/z’.
But enough correction of your Yankee friends MB. Get on with the Challenge….
OK, ok, guys.
MB and daughter MB2 were in Bucharest for 5 days this past week and did much exploring and unearthing and checking out ‘Dracula’ stuff and such like, of which more in the future. For the moment, MB will just give y’all a colourful shot he took in one of the nicest bookshops he ever visited – called ‘Carturesti’ in the centre of Bucharest. This bookshop sells, in addition to books, vinyl records, tea sets, wine (yes, wine!), backpacks, tea shirts, and much much more.
But for Tina’s challenge, MB has selected a shot of a table selling tea sets.

The Islamic feast of Eid al Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) takes place next week. In the week leading up, Muslim families will travel to the animal markets to select their particular sheep or goat (normally). So maybe not an ‘everyday moment’ throughout the entire year, but the buying and selling of animals is an everyday moment for that particular week in the Middle East and throughout the Islamic world, for many hundreds of years past.

For most of history, the city of Troy was considered a mythical place of ancient Greek legend. It’s existence, mythical or not, was founded on its mention a number of times in the poem ‘The Illiad’ by Homer (ancient Greece, not modern Springfield!). It was referred to by different names in the poem, Troia being one of them, after King Tros. Read More
