What the hell’s this?…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s featured letter of the alphabet is the capital ‘E’.
The lower case ‘e’ is like a cute grinning child’s toy, whereas the grown up version is stern, and rigid, and can used as a handy set of shelves to display one’s knickknacks on.

DSCN3495Bright colours anyone?…
Yes, a few months ago I was strolling around that lovely Victorian building, the Leeds Kirkgate Market (Yorkshire UK) and came across this display at one of the stalls…
Actually, I don’t really know what it is that I’m looking at – I think the dangling things on the left are probably… Hm… perhaps they are like bead curtains, but made of plastic flowers and leaves – and the bugs and butterflies on the right, are… plastic bugs and butterflies… Nice colours though, aren’t they?…
I deliberately grouped the green flowery danglers on the left of the composition to let the eye, (which here in the West generally reads from left to right) to progress across to the more organised sparkling reds, pinks, and oranges, of the fauna and fruit on the dotted pegboard. If you do read it like that, it looks like they are all bursting out of the shrubbery with some purpose… Perhaps they are all shouting, ‘Come on!… It’s a lovely day!… Let’s all get some fresh air!…’
Yes, yes, I know, I’m just waffling on. I should really have cut this short and said, ‘Hey, look, a photo of brightly coloured things!…’ which is exactly what it is… Still, I do think a blog post looks more inviting if there is a bit of blurb sitting below the picture…
