By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

    Is this a handy craft stall, maybe with objects made from wood or bamboo? It's not a very crowded place unless perhaps it's still early. All the same, three people look interested in the things for sale. I wonder where it was taken, only the guy with a basket - would a British man be carrying a basket like this @Lynne?

    @Shiny03 what do you see in this picture?

    Very observant @chyijung. @Shiny03 I'm not sure if this was taken in the UK. I don't know if Batman or Spiderman are all that into craft fairs.

    I think the woman in the foreground has something on her mind, but she doesn't seem so interested in the stall.

    My first thought was Christmas. But the people there arenˋt wearing warm clothes. Well, it is a Messe as we would call it. A theme is given and lots and lots of companies, handy crafts are showing their new products.
    This is a stall among plenty of others.

    In our biggest city there is a Messehalle where in spring and autumn prodacts get showed for audiance it can be a wine Messe, a beautiy Messe, a holiday Messe, and so on.

  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 27,105 mod
    A craft bazaar or handicrafts market @Hermine.

    Art and craft place in the UK. :)
  • AnuradaAnurada Posts: 207 Inactive
    Wooden craft exhibition but I am not sure.
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,061 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Yes it is an exhibition because we can see stalls. :)
  • MichouxeMichouxe Posts: 3,217 ✭✭✭✭✭
    it's an exhibition of art, but what kind of art, I'm not certain. I think it's something created in wood and comes from abroad.

    What does the body language of the woman in front of the stall say. Looking at her legs she doesn't seem to walk (or it would be one of those silly walks). She doesn't seem to stand still relaxedly either. It rather seems that she's held op in her step. She graps her mouth with her right hand. Is there something happening in front of her?

    This is superb@Frank, How could I didn't notice the person in the stall! I thought she was the owner of the stall in my previous post. Now I see she was talking to someone in grey cap.

    I thought that she is @Lynne .
    But while reading all your comments,I get confused.
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,489 mod
    It wasn't me @mohit_singh. I was taking the photo (I prefer to be behind the camera.)

    The photo was taken at an organic fair, held every year in France. It is a mixture of food, wine and crafts.

    The stall shown was from a local craftsman who makes wooden toys and puzzles. I bought one for my nephew and niece.
