This will be the last in the series of blog posts from a recent visit to Borough market in London. I tried really hard to cut down the images I wanted to include in this post and wasn’t very successful. The result is that this post is rather long than usual.
BACON! This smelt so good. I think that’s one of the things it’s difficult to capture in images of this market – the smells. There is a tremendous atmosphere to this place, and coupled with all the sounds, smells, it’s just so much fun to wander around.
The reason I went to Borough market was to find some Kashmiri chilli. I knew I had seen them there before. I actually came away with a selection of different types of chilli – all from the Spice Mountain stall!
This weekend I returned to Borough market and it has definitely become one of my favourite places in London. Today I was there with the Canon 100D and the little 40mm lens. Considering these were literally just point and shoot in auto photographs, the camera is the best I’ve ever had.
Last time I visited here it was much later in the afternoon and so a lot of the food had already been sold. I was amazed at the variety then, and going in the morning proved even more fruitful. There is so much food here that I want to try! I’m pretty sure this is going to be a regular haunt soon.
