Cake stall, Sunday market

Sunday 6th November 2022, 1.50pm (day 4,091)

Cake stall, 6/11/22

Actually she looks just like the kind of person who I would trust to deliver a really good cake. And it certainly looks that way, though I didn’t try the produce.

Friday market, DVD stall

Friday 8th April 2022, 1.35pm (day 3,879)

DVDs at market, 8/4/22

I continue to not get out: this is the 9th of the last 12 pictures to be taken in Hebden Bridge and the coming weekend ain’t gonna see me explore the world much either. Today, the stall full of digital info (DVDs, CDs) at least offered a new perspective on the Friday market of which it is a part. No purchase today though: a quick review suggests that any of these I might be interested in watching, I already own (Ted, Black Swan, Gravity and I am Legend — happy hunting)…

Good food (and dogs)

Sunday 23rd January 2022, 4.00pm (day 3,804)

Sunday market stall, 23/1/22

The Sunday market in Hebden Bridge is a significant contributor to the fact that Sundays are probably the busiest day in town, at least, when it’s not raining. There are some varied combinations possible — like here, Italian food and the dog-related stall next door to one another.

Street food

Thursday 4th November 2021, 12.10pm (day 3,724)

Street food, 4/11/21

As being made by the guy on the “Dosa” stall in St. George’s Square, Hebden Bridge, this lunchtime. I did eat my lunch out today, although not here. Although this is a little out of focus, I like the mixture of colours and textures on this shot.

Market, with real people

Saturday 20th February 2021, 2.20pm (day 3,467)

I had candidates for today that were better pictures, maybe, but I really wanted to see people’s faces today. And no, I don’t mean masked ones.

Norwich market, Christmas Eve

Thursday 24th December 2020, 11.00am (day 3,409)

Norwich market, 24/12/20

Last-minute Christmas shopping? Alone, and masked. Such is the way of it in 2020.

Dog for sale?

Friday 14th August 2020, 3.20pm (day 3,277)

Dog on stall, 14/8/20

Friday market, Hebden Bridge.  Things for sale: boots, bags, boxes…. and this dog perhaps? Or maybe it was just selling off a few of its spare possessions.  There was no human in sight.

Thursday fish van

Thursday 4th June 2020, 1.35pm (day 3,206)

Fish van, 4/6/20

‘Paul’s Fresh Fish (from Fleetwood. Lancashire)’ has been present at Hebden Bridge’s Thursday market every week for years: the van appeared on the blog way back in December 2012 (a picture I always quite liked due to its sense of late December desolation and some decent lighting). He missed a couple of weeks in April, but clearly there is too much tuna in the Irish Sea off Fleetwood to sell on, so he’s back now.

The optimist

Tuesday 3rd December 2019, 8.15am (day 3,022)

Tod market, 3/12/19

The outdoor stalls at Todmorden market stay there permanently, and well before the presumed 9am opening time of the rest of the enterprise, this guy was out with his boxes trying to get the early morning trade. There wasn’t any, hence the title of this post. I like this shot because it’s the one I was trying to take, and the car headlight poking through the struts is the final bonus.

What, on the other hand, was I doing in Todmorden — as opposed to being somewhat nearer Manchester — at this time in the morning? Don’t ask. Just part of the Conservative Party’s Annual Autumn Travel Lottery.

Boot man, Hebden Bridge market

Thursday 10th October 2019, 9.40am (day 2,968)

Boot man, 10/10/19

On the 10th October 1991 I turned up in Yorkshire for what was originally planned to be a stay of a few weeks while I ‘got myself sorted out’. Twenty-eight years later, I am still living here: the last eighteen of those in Hebden Bridge. So let’s make today’s pic a home town shot. This is commercialism again, but of a far less predatory sort than yesterday’s. In the matter of boots, defer to the boot man (Bakunin — paraphrased). I hear the olives on the next stall along are pretty good too.
