Busy and Black & White

I seem to be posting 2 at a time, at the moment. Here are two more to catch me up.

A shot of the busy street market held twice a year in the town centre, once in mid-summer and again just before Christmas. They close off the street and it also fills the square you can just see the edge of on the right. I always enjoy wandering around it, even though I don't usually buy anything.

Black & White
When I first got my camera I spent some time playing with the various settings and took this picture using the single colour setting. I liked it because of the red around the war memorial. They are actually geraniums, rather than poppies, but the effect is the same.

PS, for those who don't know why British and other Commonwealth people commemorate the war dead with poppies and are interested, an explanation can be found on Wikipedia.


Both of those are good, I especially like the black and white one. Which camera is it?
Thank you. It's a Nikon Coolpix P7100.
I never knew there was a single colour setting! I'll have to see if my camera has that. Your pic is very good.
Thank you very much.
In the menu on my camera it is called 'selective colour' under the 'effects' selection.
Love that second image and the red works so well.
Thank you.
These are great choices!
Thank you.
Perfect fill of both requests!
Thank you very much.
Certainly a busy scene!!

I LOVE that Church and "poppy" image - well done
Thank you very much.
I really love the picture of St Tom's and the War Memorial.
Thank you very much.
