The market in my hometown (Leicester) is quite big and has been around for about 700 years. Riga central market on the other hand was opened in 1930, having been built in and around disused Zeppelin hangers. It is enormous and a fantastic place to visit.

Two digital images from the Olympus EPL1
The shutter button on the Olympus XA is very sensitive and it’s easy to take an inadvertent shot, but I liked the way this one turned out.
This women caught my eye ! while I was waiting for the tram.

While we were in Riga Old Town we visited St Peter’s church and took a trip to the top of the tower, fortunately there was a lift !

The Latvian youth orchestra were rehearsing, I could have stayed and listened all afternoon.

Old town and Market
The first time I visited Riga I thought the market was the railway station, it was the canopied roofs that fooled me. The tower top right is the TV and Radio transmitter.
National Library of Latvia
This striking looking library building was completed in 2014
For the last two shots above I used my old Helios 58mm lens on the Olympus EPL1 to give me a short telephoto.

I just grabbed this shot, the Dove caught my eye.
It’s probably got nothing to do with music but it reminded me of a harp or a treble clef.
Parrot Repairs !

This little loo was in the depths of the Latvian countryside a few kilometres from Madona.
I’ve been to Latvia 6 times now since 1993 to visit my lovely relatives, but this was the first time I spent most of the holiday in Riga. I really got to like Riga, needless to say the time passed too quickly and I need to go back again to take more photographs and eat more (saldējums) Latvian ice cream !
