"Why am I standing here? I am boar'd!"
The wild boar isn't exactly shopping, but he was a great attraction in the doorway of a grocery shop in San Gimignano.
The shop is offering all the specialities that you would expect in an Italian food store.
The sign on the boar instructs us not to touch!

Thanks for looking.

Hi Jean.

I'll let you off with the Boar'd joke....Jet lag perhaps lol.
I like the addition of the boar, koking aside, it is an attraction to get you to look at and possibly walk in. The natual lighting of the outside mixes well with the shop lighting, so does the portrait format of the frame. Excellent sharpness to this interesting capture and perfect addition to the theme today. tfs, Have a brill weekend.

stv ;o))

Hi Jean,
I think we visited the same localities of Tuscany. I have this photo taken also of this same shop selling salamis of wild boar! San Gimignano is a beautiful old town with so many towers and narrow streets.
A very sharp image with perfect light balancing. The POV is pleasant and a good entry for the theme.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hello Jean
Une excellente addition au thème
Superbe couleur et contraste...avec ce sanglier on a pas le choix
de regarder...bon marketting

I love this shot Jean, it is a great addition to this theme of shopping. It is such a quirky image full of interesting little details. I visited this town many years ago and imagine that it hasn't changed all that much.


Hi Jean - I would be boared too if I would be the boar !!!
I like the details in your presentation - those little stores in Italy carry such a lot of goodies for the gourmet kitchen. Thats a store where I would need my husband with his credit card !!!!!
Thanks for sharing - have a nice weekend - Monika

Hello Jean :)

This shop looks very curiously and I would make here purchases willingly.
There are the things which I like very much here...red wine and pasta with the good sauce.
I understand that wild boar is the bodyguard here, so let him look after these good things.
The very showy work in natural colours, good light and perfect sharpness.
You registered yourself in today's subject magnificently.

I wish You the nice weekend.
With best wishes.

super captage et iamge de ce sanglier, il est charmant devant la porte, ils doivent vendre de la bonne charcuterie dans cette échoppe superbe.
Bravo et amitié

I'd say the boar is an attention getter! It surely caught my attention. Good contribution to Friday's theme. Nice capture of this shop with good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
