(Not so Obscure) Objects of Desire

Shopping for Eid and Puja?

There are kiddie shoes...



...and big people's shoes...



Smart looking hats...



... and cool blue jeans...



...with the belts to hold them up!



Pretty ornaments for the neck...



...music for the ears...



...and religious trinkets for the soul.



Beautiful dresses - some ready for a party...



... while others hanging lonely for a buyer...



...yet others looking downright sultry.



But toothbrushes? We don't need to steenkin' toothbrushes!



Wishing you and yours a very Happy Eid and Durga Puja.

Hi Rehan,

Thanks very much! Keep up your picure-taking - maybe greyness can convey different moods and feelings?

Hi Mikey,

Thanks very much. Glad you liked the pictures.

Great blog! Thanks for sharing, I posted a link to your blog at a facebook group called "Going Back to Motherland Bangladesh" - a group for NRBs fantasizing about the great escape to Bangladesh.
