Thematic Photographic - # 160 - Shopping

THEMATIC PHOTOGRAPHIC this week is perhaps a bittersweet topic.  Something some of us would rather avoid, while bringing joy to others....then there are those of us who just do it when necessary.... and it's called .........  SHOPPING!

    So, yes indeed....off to market we shall go all week long!  If you feel like sharing your own shopping adventures please do here

Shopping begins at an early age for some.....



Trust that little voice in your head that says, "Wouldn't it be interesting if...." and then do it! - Duane Michals - More Joy of Photography
              Just shop until you drop.....but leave before they lock the doors.......

You just never know what art is waiting just around the corner. - "I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free," - Michelangelo

 Really shopping is what we do out of necessity, but it can be an adventure too, if you let it.....

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea - The one and only
Portobello Road!...I know all that shopping right there, and yet the clouds were begging to be seen.......
  and just out of utter curiosity I wonder how much the paint cost on that extremely RED building? Did they shop around for the best bid?

Sometimes the best deals and keepsakes are obtained far away from home.....


Shopping can lead to the strangest encounters ever! - "The quickest way to get to know a chicken, is to watch them shop!"

Today's shopping tip: You can get shoes for less than a dollar at the bowling alley!  and if you want to see more shopping adventures...don't forget to check out Carmi's blog, at Written Inc. and see what great shopping you can accomplish!

Great selection! I love the first one, of the little girl in the supermarket - the reflections are great.
I've often met cats in shops, and the occasional dog - but a chicken!!

Perhaps the chicken is looking for the horse to get it out of there.

I had to laugh at the chicken, that's cute. I adore the first photo, I love seeing children pushing those tiny carts when I'm out shopping.

And I also wonder if the red paint was on sale, the building must attract people to the store, if not only a glance, possibly a customer... smart marketing ploy.

What on earth was that chicken doing in there? What a lucky shot and so on theme!

I love that first picture, the little girl pushing the big cart down the wide isle. The perspective is awesome.

The first one is sweet but the chicken does it for me! Bet there's a story behind that one.

I hate shopping for anything. Go in, pick it out, pay for it, and leave. It takes less than a minute - But I'm married to a woman who wants to look around! Please say you feel sorry for me.

JJ I know I hear that all the time from men and women, but knowing how special your wife is to you, I know you don't really want me to feel sorry for you!
