Photographer's Note

Vismarkt, Steenhouwersdijk, Brugge, Belgium.

The Vismarkt (Fishmarket) was designed by the city architect Jan-Robert Calloigne. The result is a porticoed building with 126 neo-Tuscan columns enclosing a rectangular open courtyard. The stone slabs under the colonnades still accommodate fish stalls most mornings, along with trinket sellers later in the day.

When I was finding out about the Vismarkt in preparation for this posting, I went to Wikipedia - as you do - and what did I find illustrating the article? Please see the Workshop to witness this coincidence! I swear I didn't take the Wikipedia shot, but the man is the same; even the round sign above his head has exactly the same writing on it... So my title is deliberate in more ways than one!
