I have a few random shots from our visit to the Dubuque Farmer’s Market last Saturday. We always have a good time there and see things that sometimes makes us scratch our heads and other times feel like WOW, I like that.
The food, smells, and variety of crafts are abundant. Lots of people wandering through the blocks of vendors and on about every block there are some type of minstrel group making sweet music.
I’m not sure if these guys are a family or just a group who have formed to make music at different events. Jeanne and I really enjoyed their music and hung around for awhile just listening to them.
This is the first time we’ve been to the Market since I acquired diabetes. It was not uncommon for us in the past to come home with several loaves of bread and a home-made pie or two. Now we could only look at them and imagine them but we couldn’t buy them. 😦
There were a couple of photographers selling their images as well. Mainly landscape images of our area and one particular one that I enjoyed featured many of the city’s old mill district buildings rendered in black and white. I got some inspiration from the ones she had on display.
It was enjoyable to watch this artist work on her canvas. We spent a fair amount of time watching her. Like I said earlier it is always an enjoyable time at the Farmer’s Market. I’m not sure why we don’t go more often. I guess just lazy.
Each time I visit the Market one of the most enjoyable past-times for me is to people watch. I am often tempted to do some “street” photography but I know that a lot of people don’t want their picture taken by a stranger or a strange man. 🙂
That’s it for today. I’ve enjoyed a 5 days respite but I’m back at it today.
Enjoy this Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by and be careful.
