Empty


The CDPB theme today is Empty so here's an early evening view of the deserted market. The traders and shoppers have all gone home and the pubs won't be chucking out for a couple of hours or so yet.

Great post!

excellent interpretation of the theme

Hilda said...

I find it amazing that everything is so neat and clean — hard to imagine that there was a busy market earlier!

Of course! It's summer so this photo can be taken quite late, the second time today I've been fooled by the opposite seasons!

Well captured Gerald.
The last few times I've passed by here early evening it was full of youths on skate boards and bikes.

lovely shot. Very bleak.

Markets are featuring high today. Like I said to Marley, reminds of B'ham and a longing for a market of any kind here.

Lois said...

Well done!

Jilly said...

So desolate but doubtless roaring back to life next day.

Such markets are amazing places during the day. So full of life. It is sad to see such places empty.

Tash said...

It really is so totally empty - not even a bit of stuff left behind. Excellent capture for TD.

Kate said...

So many of these "empty" spaces that normally are teeming with people are quite jarring to my senses as I view them today. They seem so forlorn and desolate. It's not that I don't like the photos; it just seems so unnatural.
