photoblog image Loughborough Market Place

Loughborough Market Place

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

There was recently a combined French, Crafts and Collectors workshop in the Market Place at Loughborough so, egged on by Richard (Trimage), I took my camera down. 

This was the most popular stall, the French cheeses, of which we bought a quantity, just in time for Christmas.

Reminds me that there is no cheese worth eating in Thailand, so I no longer enjoy the pleasure.
Brian Walbey: Now I am sad to hear that Ray, a trip to Europe with a 40ton lorry sounds in order to collect some cheese smile
Don't drag me into your photography Brian ...ha!
I'm blushing as I lead you down the road to accusations, being cursed and law suits ... ;-)

keep them coming Brian. Just athought I might have increased the shadow in this image.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard. There wasn't much shadow to increase sadly, it was as dull as dishwater that day but I take your point.

Brian Walbey: I must do more Chris but get a bit embarrased unlike our friend from Leicester.

Cheese, where would we be without it...Thailand evidently smile
Brian Walbey: I'm not a great cheese lover but no cheese at all sounds like a doughnut without jam to me smile
Cracking cheese Gromittongue
Brian Walbey: There was some lovely cheese on the stall Bill, Maureen made some suitable purchases.
I will keep this shot away from Maurice. Like Ray, he is deprived of cheese - though for different reasons. He is now limited to occasional treats of Goats Cheese.
Brian Walbey: Like Maurice I shouldn't really have cheese Sheila after a similar experience but I do have a little bit now and then, fortunately I'm not a great cheese person.
Mmmm..Seriously strong cheddar has to be my choice Brian...This stall must be very interesting to study..I would love it.
Brian Walbey: I like Chedder too Ron but I'm not overkeen on some of this continental soft cheese.
nice candid of everyday life.. smile
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Rob.

Ummm.. Christmas is a few months' away yet, Brian wink Give me a new Stilton any day!
Brian Walbey: They will be back in time for next Christmas Alan, we shall have to re-stock our fridge once more.
I bought some camembert cheese form one of these stalls, it was delicious, but wow did it smell! smile
Brian Walbey: I must admit to not being too keen on that sort of cheese Linda.
We have many cheese shops in Montreal, Brian, but due to our climate, most are indoors.

This stall seems offer the customer a wide selection so I can understand why it was so popular. Great capture.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks beverly, they come over from France specially for the Christmas period.
We have one of these in Sheffield occasionally - always good for something a little different!
Brian Walbey: This is an anuual event now Tom althopugh we hadn't been before.
So are these the rare breed of Loughborough Cheese Collectors then Brian, actually cheese is one food type that I just cannot stand to eat, perhaps I am missing something.

I'll be down in Loughborough on Sunday for the Tornado special, another day out on a railway then, nothing new there.
Brian Walbey: I'm not a great cheese lover Les although a bit of Cheddar now and then is o.k. Hopefully my friend and I will be at Quorn on Saturday for a while to see Tornado, I did wonder if you might make the long trek once again.
