Picture This #190 ~ Colourful Patterns by Marianne

An absolute fantastic theme by Debby and the most marvellous entries by a whopping number of (so far) 14 members............ wonderful contributions from all. Such a joy for the eyes. 

When I think of Colourful Patterns, my local artist always comes to mind

 Lesedi Cultural Village


Local Curio Shop


Musicians in Traditional costume



  1. A plethora of wonderful colours.

  2. Hi Marianne!! I knew you would have some good ones for this theme :-)) Love the patterns and colours in the first shot, of the cultural village. Interesting curio shop. I always love to look round them. I'll take a carved giraffe, please. Another great colourful shot to finish, although the guy on the right seems to be thinking more about lunch. LOL.

  3. Fantastic colorful patterns photos. I like these earthy tone colors.
    I imagine visiting the Lesedi Cultural Village, shopping for some souvenirs, and listening to them playing traditional South African music. :)
