Travel Photo Thursday – October 20, 2011 – Colorful Asian Markets

Posted by on Oct 20, 2011 in Travel Photo Thursday, Uncategorized | 21 comments

Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. The teaching semester has reached the half way mark, and my thoughts are turning more and more to my winter travels. This winter I’ll be in Thailand and Spain, and I’m looking forward to spending time wandering through the local markets with my trusty camera.

To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.

Please post a link to a post featuring a travel photo, not simply a link to your blog.

  5. Chili madness gets my vote!

  6. Beautiful photos, Nancie! I love how colorful they all are!

  7. Really bright and colourful! Wonder what the women in Bagan are chewing on?

  8. I get lost in markets. Just love to browse them looking at all the food and local products. But if my wife wants me to go shopping at home with her I can’t stand it!

  9. Beautiful! I especially like the bracelets shot 🙂

  10. Love these photos, I think photographing in colourful Asian markets is one of my most favourite things to do!

  11. Love Asian markets, and have spent hours exploring the ones in Thailand. Great close up photos!

  12. I love the first photo of the women eating. I’d also buy one (or more) of those bracelets! 🙂

  13. Markets are our favorite part of visiting new cities. Maybe they call out so much because we have such a limited ‘market season’ in the Puget Sound area of Washington State. . .May to October, well, with the exception of our famous Pike Place Market in Seattle.
    Beautiful shots!

  14. Love the chili one – it’s actually something I could easily see on my road trips around New Mexico 🙂 Great colors!!

  17. I LOVE market photos. These are great. I’m wondering what the women in the first photo are chewing on.

  18. I love markets like these and search for them when traveling! I like spicy food so the chilis caught my eye but I really love all the colors in Asia.

  19. Great photos. The chilis look bright and yummy, but only to people who like it hot.

  21. Beautiful pictures! Coincidence wanted I too posted photos of Asian local markets today, but West Asia, precisely Iran! Very colorful too, and delicious 🙂
