I love how you just filled the frame with all this color! Look at all that detail! Incredible!
John Prior: Thanks Elizabeth, I filled the frame to get rid of the untidy background.

With some old folk tales illustrated on it by the look of things
John Prior: Yes I wondered if they were operatic scenes Chris.

Well you can't say they did not make full use of the space available.
John Prior: A sort of schizophrenic approach I think smile
beautiful crop
John Prior: Thanks Chantal.
What a beautifully decorated cart it is
John Prior: A dying tradition also.
Perfect how you came in close to frame this. It's a frame full of story, color, detail, and shape.
John Prior: Thank you T, I got in close because the background was distracting.
Isn't that just a lovely way to decorate a cart, a traditional way I presume.
John Prior: Yes I think so Brian.

I like this tight shot at all the color and designs.
John Prior: Thanks Otto, not many of these around now.
A grand bit of ornamentation John, well spotted.
