Sunday markets - what's not to love!

A Malta must see is the Sunday fish market near the harbour in Marsaxlokk ( pronounced ‘marshashlock’) - a port located SE of Valletta (about a 35 minute bus ride).

The sun was shining. It was a beautiful warm day in Marsaxlokk and the view of the harbour was amazing - filled with decorative boats called luzzus.

I loved how the brightly painted colours of the boats played against the bright blue sky but this tiny green boat really caught my attention. 

The market had everything - garden produce next to household cleaning products next to flowers next to crocheted doilies and tablecloths next to… get the idea - anything and everything at this market!

But what was not to be missed was the fish market in the middle of it all.

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
