Drug pusher....


Great portrait - love his top hat and smile
Chris: Sugar pusher, all bad stuff.

But he was happy to pose..
Brians fish & chips...Now you with fudge...Stop it!
He looks quite a character, Chris.
Chris: He was part of Bath's Christmas Market Frank
His winning smile would probably persuade me to purchase, Chris.
Chris: Not me, I'm afraid, Old Chap. All this sugar would finish me off in no time..
Un personnage haut en couleurs.
Chris: Very much so..
LOL at Frank. And I quite agree with Ray!
Chris: For me this is food porn Ginnie. I can view but not participate

Oh, the famous fudge (not for me)! The vendor looks like a chimney sweeper.
Chris: Hahaha - I didn't think of that Philine. But he does!

He has a sweet smile advertising his sweet goods in his sweet little vending-place... too much sweets for me, Chris.
Love the portrait though smile
Chris: Nice man but yes, too sweet for me as well Astrid

Ahh... someone not selling sh*te in the Sheds of Sh*te Festival. I'm always wary, though. of open food that has hordes of the GUs passing by.
Chris: So am I.

I visited this Chr*stm*s market for photo opps only

Chris: Bet he sold TONS of it Lisl..
Our Helen would like this!
Chris: Yup - she'd look good in a stovepipe hat
Voilà  un sourire bien accueillant ..
Chris: Yes indeed. Thank you Claudine

Fudge … A Brexit fudge would be far worse than this

But don't get me wrong ...I don't mean that sugar fudge is fine.
Chris: All of it is AWFUL!!

"Luxury" fudge & caramel sauces. Nowadays one sees the word "luxury" where it actually promises advanced stages of decadency, in terms of sugar and cream. Brrr. Fortunately not to my taste. Well, the guy seems friendly enough.
This could have been a stall in the Arab quarter of Jerusalem's endless bazaars. They have the same nougats and fudge types - and don't look at it, or the vendor will pounce on you.
Chris: I can't eat any of it Louis..
Dressed for the part, he has some tasty looking sweet stuff there.
Chris: It is certainly well presented
He looks genuinely happy.
Chris: He is anticipating abundant sales, that's why..

I bet he's got another career as a dentist, Chris grin
Chris: That would make perfect sense Penny

Lovely portrait.
Chris: I am obliged to you Anne
Mmm - I'm not sure that I'm encouraged to buy, given his appearance!
Chris: You think he might have murder in mind Tom?
This one gloved merchant looks to be quite a pleasant fellow, Chris. Just looking at his merchandise is starting to make my teeth ache though.
Chris: These things look good Bev, but..
Happy fellow!
