My Granny Went to Market

Blue House

Candy Shop

Homemade Tortillas


Our daughter and son-in-law were vacationing in Puerto Vallarta and sent some photos. I thought the blue building was very cool for Blue Monday. To join this meme and see more photos, visit Smiling Sally. It is very common to see brightly colored structures south of the border, along with a potted Geranium.


There is a little bit of blue sprinkled in with mostly yellow colored candy wrappers and papayas, abundantly displayed at the local market. I love this photo. Of course, this charming shop owner, along with the yellow taxi cab is my entry for Mellow Yellow Monday.

There is such a charm about visiting a foreign country. I get excited just to get out and take an hour long drive now and then, to visit new surroundings.  Of course, it always sounds like the people are speaking rapidly in their language. I speak a little Spanish, very slowly. How about you? Awh, the sights and sounds of Mexico!


If you've noticed, I am experimenting this week with watermark placement on my photos. Not sure that I like it or if it's even necessary for that matter. Does anyone have an opinion on this subject? I guess if someone wants to re-use your photo, it would take a little time but they could remove and crop things out for their advantage. It's not like I'm saying that I'm a professional photographer and need to worry about copy writing! lol

A wonderful activity for children to do, place a world map on the floor and have kids mark their journey, as in My Granny Went to Market, visiting mountains and valleys, forests and deserts, arriving at different markets around 7 continents. What a fun, universal concept of finding open air markets for shopping  all around the world!
