Pick a Word for September

Paula has supplied some good words this month for Pick a Word
I hope I can do her words justice with my photos this month. I do so love this photo challenge. I have done a bit of cheating using one of Kimskys drawings but I did take the photo for her portfolio.

Shopping

The word prompt from Debbie at Travel with Intent: Shopping

As you may have guessed, I am unwell again with a stupid cold and not in the mood to do all those jobs I have to do outside. It has been a bushboy post avalanche.

Onto shopping. I am taking you shopping in Seoul, South Korea.

Down the narrow staircase we go
180828_blog challenge-shopping_seoul1

Now we are in the street where the colour and shops abound.
180828_blog challenge-shopping_seoul2

Some of the shops are multi story shops, while some are just on the pavement.
180828_blog challenge-shopping_seoul3

If you find a spot, plonk down and get your goods out for all to see.
180828_blog challenge-shopping_seoul4

Or head into the shops where there is something to tantalise.
180828_blog challenge-shopping_seoul5

After a while you might need a bite to eat.
180828_blog challenge-shopping_seoul6

And then back into the fray to find a bargain.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Flags or Banners

I wasn’t sure if I have any flags or banners but a bit of recollection pulled a few out of the folders. A varied lot. Lots of flags and banners just in here

Some colourful little flags
