The Flower Market

Maggie, her friend Tom, and I head to the Flower Market.

They have big, classy cameras. I take their pictures with Mike's tiny point and shoot.

We arrive.

I don't know anything about flowers, but Maggie says it's amazing to see so many orchids. She buys a huge bouquet of dead bamboo. I like the woven baskets:

When we wander away, we can see down the river:

Rooftops and umbrellas:

And the (un)usual assortment of sites.

Bank-robber mannequin heads:

A dog asleep on a case of gold jewelry:

The grocery market, full of delicious practicalities:

And piles and piles of scarves:

I think your next post should have a picture of the dog wearing a burglar mask and scarves, eating at the grocery store. Go!
