Thanks to blogger Patti for her Splash challenge this week.
MB has taken a bit of license on the theme and offers, instead of water, a splash of colour! MB was mooching around Doha’s Souq Waqif last Friday night and came across a bright blue chair in a sea of brown and orange that he had not previously noticed.

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.
