Riffling through the records...Thursday, August 08, 2013
St Georges Market is one of my favourite places to wonder around on a weekend. This particular weekend I met up with my photographer bud Dan. We ate sugared crepes, talked about cameras and lens, he has a Canon 5D mark ii (along with a few others) and I want to steal it! Then we had a mosey around the market which is on every Friday, Saturday & Sunday. They have such a
random eclectic selection of stalls selling anything from vintage furniture & books, bakers selling amazing iced cakes and buns to little jewellery designers selling scrabble tile rings and retro upcycled watches. One of my favourites is the Windy City Bakery who sell red velvet cupcakes & carrot cake cupcakes. So yummy!
The most epic little car sitting outside... We seemed to start a frenzy taking photos of it as people turned up left right and centre to snap pics of it on their phones. After this we made the most of the sunshine and headed down to the Waterfront, a two minute walk away...
This spot is always popular with tourists for its amazing views over the River, the modern walkaways and footbridge & of course the giant mosiac tiled fish which you can sort of see behind me in the above shots, cladded in tiles describing the history of Belfast and measures over 10 metres long.
Love how the iconic Harland & Wolff crane can be seen from this bridge... also notice how it
kinda matches my yellow dress? I have also noticed people have started copying the Lovers Bridge in Paris whereby you padlock a lock to the bridge with the name of you and your partner on it and then throw the key into the river. Symbolising your eternal love..
