We posted on the Prahran market previously. It's the one that has Sue's favorite Foodie Shop - Essential Ingredient. She always buys something even if she doesn't need it. We also usually grab a snack and a glass of wine during the shopping spree. On Saturday when we decided it was that time for a glass of wine there was a three piece group, a guitarist, an upright bass and the vocalist and she sang like Doris Day - it was just a perfect interlude in our shopping day.
There's always something that I notice that previously I may not have seen. On this occasion it was a work of art in the form of a wall mosaic.
I'm not sure of the significance of the theme of the mosaic but the colours captured my attention, especially when I looked much more closely to see how these tiny pieces of coloured glass came together to create the above image.

First opening in 1864, it was later moved from Greville St to its current location in Commercial Rd during 1891. The market has been running for over 150 years. Back then it was known for its market gardens and small farms - today its a hub of shopping, nightclubs and an eclectic population.
