You will look like a distinguished, though somewhat eccentric, gent clomping about the Clent Hills in a pair of those clogs, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I resisted the temptation to buy any clogs, or a windmill

I think perhaps those decorative clogs are the ultimate in tweeness. Grannies all over Europe must have them hanging in the house, I think we've got some somewhere that I keep things in
Bill Phillips: We didn't buy any. As I said to Philine, my Grandfather was a cobbler in Lancashire and almost certainly made clogs. He certainly sold them in his shops.

Two lips from hamster jam was a fine song Bill. You seem to have enjoyed your time in Holland.
Bill Phillips: No it wasn't it was dire. We had a fine time in Hamsterjam and the rest of the Nedderlands.
Shame it didnt sail off with you on it.
Bill Phillips: I see normal service has been resumed Mr Shaw.

Yes, you have seen all the things a tourist in Dutchland must have seen! Did you buy some klompjes?
Bill Phillips: No I didn't. Funnily enough my grandfather was a cobbler in Lancashire and probably made clogs for the mill workers

Many many times I walked this market, during lunch-break, and I never get tired of it. So many beautiful flowers allover.
The tourist on the top left picture looks very familiar wink

The original song from 1957...
Bill Phillips: It is almost as bad as Max Bygraves version grin

She does look familiar smile
Oh all the colors are so wonderful!! And I bet you could smell the flowers before you saw them... one of my favorite things!
Bill Phillips: I had also taken the pictures before I saw the sign saying no picture allowed
What a wonderful page of colour and so busy you don't know where to look.
Bill Phillips: A blaze of colour Pauline. A tourist must see I think
Flowers of every kind. I love it!
Bill Phillips: It was a riot of colour Mary

Its all very colourful and looks to be geared towards the tourists. I can remember the Max Bygraves song.
Bill Phillips: It is on the tourist map Alan. Terrible song wasn't it?

Heck this montage is bubbling over ...I don't know where to look first
Bill Phillips: Colourful ain't it comrade?
great exposure. all of them very bright
Bill Phillips: It was very colourful Ayush smile
what a nightmare, Bill
Bill Phillips: A very colourful one JC
Ah, yes - I remember this!
Bill Phillips: A must see for the tourist Tom
What a great mix of things and colours in these shops. In 1963 I bought my parents a windmill musical box back from Amsterdam, well I was only 19. My Dad wound it up too much and broke the spring, my Mum didn't arf give him what for. We've still got it actually, are we sad or what!
Bill Phillips: Very Brian grin We resisted buying clogs or windmills

A suffusion of colour smile I think if I wore clogs I would prefer a more plain option
Bill Phillips: I am inclined to agree Anne.
Wonderful collage of the painted wooden shoes for the tourists to buy at flowers and the produce store Bill....petersmile
Bill Phillips: This place was clearly aimed at tourists Peter
The treatment works really well with these detailed pictures, as to the music choice 'oh dear' smile
Bill Phillips: Well I had to include it at sometime. I saw Max Bygraves on stage in about 1966!! He was actually very funny
I hope to go to a market place like this one of these days lots of things to photograph...
Bill Phillips: There was actually a sign saying no photographs but I didn't see it until I had already taken some grin
Really beautiful and colourful Bill!
Bill Phillips: It was very colourful and enjoyable Richard
I'm enjoying the postcards!!
Bill Phillips: I am very pleased you are Jacquelyn
