The first of each month brings City Daily Photo bloggers together for a theme day. For the first day of August, the theme is Take Away Store. You can find other examples of the theme by clicking here.
I have taken some liberties with the theme. As retail happens at this event, money exchanges hands, and things are taken away, it qualifies for the occasion. In the Glebe each summer, at some point in June, an art festival takes place in Central Park on the east side of Bank Street, with artists displaying their skills and selling to interested customers. I have photographed the park from here before; check out earlier views.
Painters, photographers, sculptors, jewelry designers, glassblowers, and even bakeries set up shop here for the weekend, and the crowds come out.
It all nestles nicely into the park. The festival has grown in recent years, crowding into the east side of the park. Inevitably they're going to have to start setting up over in the park extension on the west side of the street.
I have more from this tomorrow.
