PHOTO HUNTERS - ART 2.6.

As you know perhaps I am member of a group of leisure painters after a few years of Art School. So what else to show then my own art ?

The theme for this year's exposition in October is "ethnic" and I choose Egyptian statues but also a real cat, Dragonheart, because he is a sphinx.







ROUND ROBIN - MAILBOX



I have to post early this time because I am on a roundtrip trough Turkey and on the 30th on the way to Istambul !


These are all mailboxes I found here in my area in Waterloo










and my own mailbox

    These photos were taken on Brussels "Midi Market" taking place every sunday morning.


    Cookwear


    Moroccan Tajines for cooking couscous



    women buying vegetables for cooking. We are not in Morocco, but in Belgium. Many Morrocans are living here.

    A stand where you can buy a plate of cooked very tiny mussels which look like little snail houses. You pull the cooked meat out with a tooth stick. It's a typical Belgian speciality and you can find these stands mostly on markets.



    and the necessary vegetables for cooking
