Hobart and Salamanca Market

The first photo is of the Tasman Bridge leading into Hobart from the Rosney Point Lookout, which is just above where my Brother lives.   That is the city of Hobart on the other side of the river, with Mount Wellington under those clouds.  The remainder are just a few shots taken while waiting for someone at the Salamanca market on Saturday – set near the docks and surrounded by historic sandstone buildings and old warehouses, it is a vibrant colourful place full of interesting folk, local produce, gourmet food, and very tempting items of all sorts to purchase.  I escaped with a new leather handbag and a beautiful embroidered jacket from Kashmir, but could have spent a great deal more!

This man is playing Uilleann pipes or Irish Bagpipes which have a different sound from the Scots Bagpipes below.
