Photohunt: Public


Mercado Central - Santiago
Mercado Central - Santiago Chile

This week's Photohunt theme is public. I decided to go to a country that I haven't posted much about - Chile. We visited the long thin country in 2003. We did a lot of flying. We started in Santiago, then flew to the far north near Peru, then to the Lake district and finally ended with a 4 day trek in Patagonia. Loved it. It is a great place to visit.

The picture above is from the Mercado Central. It is the public market in Santiago. It is a large open building with the sellers ringing the outside. The inside is a huge group of restaurants specializing in seafood. All of the restaurants are out in the open - it is like eating in public. Beautiful and tasty.

Here are a few more pictures of some public places.

Very interesting photos. I didn't know you'd been to Chile. I love visiting public markets when I travel. Have a great weekend.

Great take on the theme. I love all of these shots and the last one of the public market with all that beautiful fresh produce has my mouth watering.


Great pics! The market looks so colourful! :)

Happy photo hunting!


I must say visiting fellow Photo Hunters this week has made me think, yes I could have posted a photo of this or that for this theme. What a lot of things fall under the category.

Happy weekend to you.

Very interesting photos. Public market is what I really like to go to than grocery store ^_^

Love your photos of the market place in Chile, so full of color. I would love to visit there one day. I must comment on your photos of the carrots, they are amazing, and I really loved all you pics of Seattle too, even living here, I learned something new!!! Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

I just LOVE markets! You have been to some great places!

All great photos for the theme. The top one is especially interesting.

For some reason I could smell fresh tropical fruit when looking at your photos--I guess memories of Latin American market. The Public Boulevard looks like some of the ones we saw in Buenos Aires.
