Ciao VP, Photos, interesting subjects all...I was struck by the shopping carts locked to the post and the rolling paper vending machine! Madonna and child in niche, very beautiful! Gentle(?) rain looks very peaceful!

You find the most fascinating things to photograph. The paper rolling machine is awesome. Never seen one of those before. Very creative thinking.
