Five past two at Smithfields Market

Hello Monday. How nice to see you. With your loud alarm clock, noisy housemates, chilly bike ride, endless to do list and attention-seeking inbox. At least I am allowed to take an hour for lunch.

This lunchtime I wandered aimlessly about, down to Smithfields Market. I ate my lunch on a bench in the nearby park and gave one of my rolos to the man sitting next to me. He said I had made his day and asked what sweets I would be bringing tomorrow. I might actually sit there tomorrow with a tube of Smarties just to see if he shows up :)
Love your clock shot, I'll be waiting tomorrow to see if you post the rolo man!

fav...love :) I also love that you shared your sweets. Sweets are one thing I do not share! If he shows up tomorrow, you should trade smarties for a portrait

Beautiful symmettry and processing. And nice about giving your sweets - people are so shy about communicating with others usually.
