Market Time

We are here, posting from half way along the south coast in Turkey.

This is a little travelling update plus an entry into the #inthepink challenge from Go check it out if you want to join in, here’s today’s pink squares post.

We are here, posting from half way along the south coast in Turkey, been here since Thursday actually but only getting around to posting today. The journey was perfect, went better than planned. The plane caught a tail wind apparently and landed 30 minutes early, the drive was more direct than expected and that cut an hour from our time.

This is Day three. Today I went to a traditional Turkish market, bought some tea and many other things … those Turkish sales men are good!

I also experienced my very first Turkish bath followed by a ‘medical massage’ and that included hot stones, a lot of manipulating and a girl even walked on my back! That was finished off with a face mask and then some funky fish who got to eat at my feet, that was the weirdest thing ever. I have been left with a terrific glow to my skin and I can still smell all those oils.

Anyway here’s my entry, a scene from the market. Lots of colours including pink.

The theme for squares this month is ‘In the Pink‘ and the one rule as always is that your main photograph must be square. After that the world is your oyster, or should I say flamingo?! To help you get started here are some ideas you might want to consider;

1 ‘In the Pink’ – means perfect condition or in good health, so that could be human or not!

2 ‘Tickled Pink‘ – means delighted, so I’m thinking happy, fun and of course delighted. That could be you or the subject of your photograph.

3 Pink – you can of course simply share anything that is coloured pink

4 There is an extra challenge for those of you up for it – can you manage to combine two of these, or maybe even all three?

Squares is a daily challenge, so your photographs can be from the archives or brand new. If daily is too difficult, then feel free to post every other day, weekly or even just once in the month. No matter how often you post I will include you in my regular pink galleries. Don’t forget though to keep your photo square, and to pingback with #InthePink.

        1. They are doing so good! It’s the parents who don’t behave, little Sol was walking round the market behind us worrying about how much we were buying. The Turkish Lira sounds so much more expensive than our money back home.
