Enough whining. Very nice pictures, everyone. You probably understand why I'm not going to contribute much to this thread...
We too have strict laws, Jarmo.

Essentially. They want honesty. The produce must be grown by that farm and if they say it's pesticide free, that better be the truth. However, there is a lot of trust and I don't see inspectors demanding exactly which field in the farm some crop was grown or taking away samples for lab analysis. But perhaps this is done on a random basis and we don't notice!

Well, I was going to say, come to Los Angeles, but onltvin Setubal will you also get a genuine fish and seafood market that will explode your mind!

Natural products are hard to produce. Bugs come from everywhere... even from from governments !

In our small garden we have some tomatoes which, I guarantee you, are pesticides free except from those coming in the water supply and from the air. Something unavoidable, whereever you are in the World.
And let's not talk about the fish, aquaculture and polluted oceans...

Bellow, Oman fish market. At the left the antipathic guide with glasses on his head

Antonio,

I like the picture, especially the man on the floor with a large ledger book!

Now go to the man with glasses on the lower left. What makes him "antipathetic". We don't see enough of him to know that for ourselves. What is the story?

Asher

Antonio,

Good morning!

What a good way to wake up in the morning and see a fresh picture that pops off the page!

The lady is elegant and her abundant produce is splendid and inviting. I have not, as yet, detected what the piles of color are, (flowers, vegetables or spices), but right now, I like these elements working with the upright posture of the woman.


......O.K., Antonio, I expanded the image on my iPhone and now see the sharp details of the flower petals and it is even more attractive! I will enjoy it on my full screen.


Asher

When were you in Oman? That is a wonderful thing you have done! I am thrilled as I know you must have more pictures!
