Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too,and now that he is back from his holiday, we'll probably see more of his photographs from that his time in Canada and New York
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I'm taking you all back to Adelaide's Central Market.
I haven't been back there myself, these photos are from November 2011.
Everybody ready? Got your walking shoes on? Here we go>>
many of those shops are the fruit and vegetable stalls, with regular customers having their favourites.
there are a couple of flower stalls, this one had beautiful bunches of peonies for sale.
I usually look ahead before passing these stalls, if there are oriental lilies on show, I'll walk the other way.
The Old Lolly Shop was a favourite for a few years, we always got several varieties of lollies for sharing after dinner.
I love browsing in these types of shops, so much to see, a little of everything.
Hot Bread, quite possibly the most wonderful aroma in the world on a cold winter Saturday.
the breads were available in many wonderful shapes,
and the cheesy croissants always smelled delicious.
another bread shop.
the cheese shop had fabulous cheesy aromas wafting from the dishes of tasting samples,
and more varieties than I ever knew existed.
I rarely bought from here and when I did I stuck to buying what I knew would get eaten,
usually the milder varieties, Edam, Gouda, but sometimes the smoked Edam found its way home with us.
Chinatown has a large Asian supermarket where I buy my cleaver style knives. They're cheap, long lasting and very comfortable in my hand.
They come in many sizes and it's a simple matter to pick up each size and hold it as if preparing to chop or slice something. This way you get the one that is right for you.
and here are my favourite blades.
The tiny one doesn't get used much, I mostly use the one in front and the one at the back. The big one in the middle is excellent for cutting hot pizza, it has a straight blade, while the other two have a slight curve.
