Photographer's Note

Malgo (emka) recently posted this picture of a crazy fishmonger in a Spanish fishmarket, but it turned out that the man was just waving his big knife around in fun and wasn't actually threatening our dear friend at all! I think Malgo had a good giggle because we all thought that the man had gone crazy!

However, this is a somewhat less exciting photograph of a fishmarket, also in Spain but in Mahon, the capital of Menorca. The fishmonger here seemed a bit grumpy, he didn't seem to be too keen to be photographed, but he didn't actually threaten me with a knife.

Just for Malgo, and because she lives quite far from the sea and only sees "prepared" fish in her shops and supermarkets, I'm adding a couple of pictures of some of the seafood displayed here as workshops - here and here - both quite interesting but not necessarily very attractive!

And you can see a larger version of this photograph on "beta" TE here.
