All along the Venice Beach Boardwalk there were market stalls, trying to sell us tourists everything from "your name on a grain of rice" to "5 pair of socks for $5" - via caps, t-shirts and necklaces. Forseeable and recognizable from almost every "Summer paradize" or "Summer festival" also in Sweden, so I went looking for any differences (it was a cold sea breeze blowing that day).
Eventually I found this little booth selling mistmakers together with all kinds of "stuff" in a mishmash. Lovely!

This is a cute scene, and I like your title - it goes so well with your note. I think you did good work in the post p. too, considering the bright sun and dark shadows. I wish the title "Mistmakers" was even easier to read. It's very neatly centered - not so "artisic", but nicely done.

A very interesting and amusing composition! I like the way you included in it the mist and the handwritten note. The prevailing cold colours, together with scarce light and the rising mist give a special mystical impression. I like it!

A great composition, Kaj, with a wonderful mixture of colours. I especially like the blue dish behind the sign. The dark background helps to highlight the steam and the touch of light on the foreground objects. Good note.

You have managed to capture the mist very well. Good colours, and well seen.
