Cee's Fun Foto Challenge: 2012 people, animals, outdoors and nature

I am joining Cee's challenge for the first time and starting off with a combination post:

People and Animals

Beach seller

Walking back and forth all day in the summer months, selling his wares cannot be easy, yet he always has a smile for anyone he meets along the way.

Algoz market
Locals at the monthly market in Algoz - shopping and catching up on the gossip.

Human statue at a fair
This guy had the good sense to choose a sitting position!

Medieval fair - playing a pauper
I have used this photo of a participant in the street animation at a medieval fair before on a post for Jake's Sunday post challenge.

Dogs enjoying the garden
I can't resist introducing my 4 dogs. There are quite a few posts about them on my blog. Here are 2 in the garden.

Dogs enjoying the beach
Here are my other 2 on an outing to the beach.

  1. These are wonderful photos for these challenges! I particularly love the trees. There is always something special about them.

    1. Thank you, Cee. If I had a big garden, it would have lots of trees.

  2. 2nd attempt - not sure I had ever seen an almond tree before and hadn't thought about them blooming.

    1. Oh. Just click on "almond blossom" in the 'labels' section on my left side-bar for more posts on almond trees and blossom.

  3. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

    1. My humble apologies to tita buds. While trying to catch up and reply to everyone's comments, my fingers slipped and the above post got deleted. It's a pity because it was a very nice comment by a blogger that I follow and who only recently discovered I had a blog, too.

      Sincerely yours,
      Clumsy blog admin. Mara
