well ... another unconventional photo
I visited the Central market in Barcelona.... it was a fantastic experience to see the huge range of produce, meats, seafood, etc.
The market is clean, busy and well illuminated and the stallholders are friendly even though the hundreds of tourist interfere with trading.I took many photos....this one is one of my favourites.......as you walk along you may not recognise that the meat on sale is Lamb..... so they added the figurines to illustrate the origin of the cuts ....... good marketing !!!

Mouth watering shot Gus, an excellent attempt at food photography...
Main supply of lambs come from Downunder and Nz and my fav is 'Herb crusted rack of lamb' served with young potatoes Ha ha!!
Your picture is an inspiration I my a consider this for dinner tonight. You managed the exposure very well, detail is great and I love the natural colour - not over saturated and sharp too. Excellent up load and tx for sharing.

Dobar dan, popodne.
Kod mene je jutro i pada kisa.
Lep pogled na jegnjece mesto i male skuplture ovce.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazano mesto i skulpture, dobra cena jagnjetine.
Sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.
For me it is morning and it is raining.
Nice view of jegnjece place and small sculptures made sheep.
Good work, nice place and sculptures shown, good lamb prices.
All the best for the weekend, good luck.

Lamb is I think the most expensive meat, I like to eat it so much. Maybe it comes from Australia or New Zealand
Did you check the source?
Colorful butcher stall of Barcelona, high resolution, good pov and colors, all the best, regards

Hola Gus, una interesante foto de excelente observador, creo que es fácil que los muñecos pasen desapercibidos, pero no para tu mirada, buen e interesante trabajo, felicitaciones.
Buen dia y feliz fin de semana.

Indeed an unconventional photo with these lambs meat as subject.
The two lambs in corner are an extra addition.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

You're capturing well this showcase of meat shop by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see rare Lamb meat although I hardly eat it in daily life. And, it's funny and effective for two Lamb dolls in showcase as extra bonus.

Glad to see your weekly funny photo, this view makes me think about so curious idea. So cute toys and realistic dismembering of their prototypes... What could say the children about? )))
Best wishes and have a good new week!

7.5 Euros for one Kilo of lamb, is really not expensive.
Nicce idea for a picture, funny small "lambs" added, and fine clear photo collected.
Have a nice week ahead,

Bueno a mi no me parece nada brutal, sino simpatica....., estas ovejitas son muy graciosas y quitan hierro a ver los trozos de carne en plan rudo, pero en las carnicerias eso es lo normal.
Bien visto y mejor captado.
Magnifica iluminacion y nitidez, en una imagen de agradable colorido.
Feliz inicio de semana.
Saludos muy cordiales, amigo mio.

No, Gus, I wouldn't buy it. I like lamb but this one's already blue.:( Don't you think that mine in ws is a bit fresher? And content-wise it's sort of shocking, those innocent eyes and smiles next to their future, you know..;)
And oh, you can't be another Rafa-hater...The kid spoilt my party yesterday:( Besides he hasn't won anything this time of the season in his whole career so it could have been something new instead of Djoker taking it 2nd time in a row..;)
Have a great week!

imagino que esta foto la tomaste dentro del "Mercat de La Boqueria" (oficialmente Mercat de Sant Josep), que estaba muy cerca de tu hotel y que es visita obligada para el turismo.
Captaste esta simpática decoración de uno de los puestos de venta del mercado, donde venden carne de cordero, y estos divertidos muñecos así nos lo indican muy gráficamente.
Es un buen plano corto, con mucha nitidez y gran detalle de los elementos.
Bonito e interesante trabajo, alejado de las fotos más turísticas de los monumentos.
Un abrazo, y cariños para Dawn,
Pili & Josep

hehehehe this one's given me a smile. How cute. And how cheap the price of lamb! I love photos of food (as you know) and this one is very characteristic and appetizing. Great job. Have a beautiful day.
Un abrazo and thanks for your kind thoughts

This photo proves your superb extra creativity. I can see you observe each situation - item - place with photographer eyes. I'd never came to an idea to take photo in butcher shop. I think I can learn a lot of from. Wait until I'll come to Sydney, I'll keep you busy. Excellent details shot, I like it.
