A great range of yellows! Very interesting market scene in Ecuador! I was intrigued how the women used long shawls ...especially for tying a little one on their back!

I just love the Chinese needlework. So detailed, it must have taken ages to complete.

Your nephews remind me of my nephew and nieces too who loves to wear their favorite cartoon character costume. The Chinese needlework art is beautiful. It made me think how they could walk or stand(those time) when their feet are bound. In my native country Philippines we have open air market too, and love to go there because all the fruits and vegetables are fresh.
Great shots you have thanks for sharing!

I would have a difficult time with this meme. I like how it's on Mondays though, really sets a nice tone to the week.

Happy Monday to you, Kay!

Hello dear Kay... are you feeling mellow this MYM? Your photos are a delight. In my very first apartment in Toronto as a young adult (hmmm... of 18) I had a Chinese needlepoint of herons framed on our wall; intricate indeed. Little did I know then that a dozen years later I'd be on a slow boat to China and never leave!

Have you traveled almost all over the world except Mew Zealand?

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Ann - Well, I wouldn't say almost everywhere in the world.
It's true I've never been to New Zealand, though. But it's a great big world and there are many, many places I've never seen, and probably never will see.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Isn't that needlework amazing? It conjures up whole novels in my mind, thinking of the people who made that beautiful painstaking art.

Kay said...

Kay said...

Oh... Your grandniece and nephews are absolutely adorable.
