What’s “On Display” this week for Amy’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #76? I know many of you have smashing Christmas displays, so I will not even try… My choices are from daily life, what I like to do and to see. But, In the header I just had to be a bit ”Christmassy” – if you look closely, I am on display in every single bulb….
Books have always been a big part of my life, and this is just a tiny fragment of the gigantic pillar of books I found in a shop – it went from floor to ceiling. I would guess maybe 4 meters high.
From a dusty market in Tibet – Yak bells! Christmas is coming… Our horses used to have bells when they were pulling the winter sleigh to church. When my mother was a child.
Chilies and peppers – a daily ingredient in my cooking. A great display is always crucial if you want to sell. This one would make me buy more than I could use…
Many of us love to walk the markets in foreign countries. I love seeing the farmers come to town to sell their products. Some of them only have a small garden, but they work hard to produce vegetables, fruits and berries to make a living.
This lovely old lady was pleased at my attention, but only body language was possible. There was a story, somewhere, I know. But we exchanged smiles, and I felt she still had a good life.
We hope you join us this week for Amy’s fun “On Display” challenge. Just add her link to your post. (Links from the Reader are not working correctly.) Use the Lens-Artists tag to help us find you.
As always, Patti, Amy, Tina and I thank you for your continued support of our photo challenge!

Hi Leya. Your photo of the mirrors reflecting is mind-blowing. I have never seen anything remotely like it. Such an original display. wo.
Here’s my own submission for this topic

Ann-Christine, I liked the tree of shiny balls, as well as the display of colourful chile peppers. Perhaps, the colours hint at the levels of spiciness. 🌶🔥
Thank you, Henry – I guess the colours reveal that, yes!
Merry Christmas! I love your selection of images. I’ve never seen a book pile like that one!
Merry Christmas to you as well, Susan! If I had the possibility and the room for such a pile – I would have wanted to build one myself!
Such a beautiful variety of displays. Those books! Wow. I wonder what happens if someone takes a book out in the middle! And the bells – unusual to see like that (well, for me anyway). Have a lovely holiday – great tree of bulbs at the top 🙂
Thank you so much – I am back from a great holiday, but caught the flu the last day…Hopefully over until Christmas. Yes – the books – a wow – and I don’t think you can pull one out because of the pressure from all. But I love to wonder as well…
You’re welcome. Ugh – the flu – never a good time for that. Hope you feel better soon.
A beautiful and colorful collection, A-C. The bells, the market items, the woman selling her wares. I’d definitely buy those peppers, too. They look marvelous. And I like your selfie X 50!!
Well…about that selfie – fun because I am seldom the star! Towards Christmas I am always humbled, even more feeling for all those in poverty and all those who are satisfied with only little. But I have seen so much content, happiness and joy in poor countries. Smiles we never get in our rich part of the world. In fact it is they who are rich – not us. We stopped buying Christmas presents long ago – one or two little things, (specially chosen of course!) is enough.
Second hand is a good choice. And those peppers! I guess it would be a bit different if I had grandchildren…
I had the same feeling in Fiji. The people truly are happy. We have a lot to learn from them, I think. We celebrate Hannukah, but it’s gotten much more commercial. It’s really just for kids–which I think is more reasonable. The spending can get so out of hand. I like your idea of 1 or 2 little things. Great idea.
Thanks, Patti – and those two little things are just enough if they are well thought through!

Fun and colorful … love that book pile! You always deliver!!! *smile
I love the pillar of books!!! There can’t be enough of them! And the chillies are so beautiful and colorful! Wonderful post! 😀
Thank you so much, Sarah – so I found your site too! Such great talent!
You’re very welcome, Leya! And thank you for your visit, comments and follow! ❤
Ann-Christine, your choices are eye-catching and delightful. I’d have to take photos of those things too if I saw them. Excellent frames you created for each one. You’re right, that woman does look like she’s lived a full life – her shirt almost looks like it has the same squiggle design that the wall has.
Ha, thank you for noticing the shirt design – I didn’t! She was quite lovely. The calm and secure attitude, self-esteem and pride. There were many of them in Tbilisi. Thank you for liking the shots.
I love to study your photos, you always capture unique shots.
Thank you kindly, such a great comment!
Lovely set. I just love that stack of books. I wouldn’t mind sitting on top of it and working my way down book by book. But it may take more than one holiday.
Thank you! Now, if we both sit down and take turns reading – maybe a year? No, I don’t think that would be enough!
I love the bulbs displaying you many times over 🙂
Merry Christmas and thanks for being a host of this challenge, I enjoy participating.
So happy you enjoy participating, Amy – always a treat! And multiple me? Well, as long as it is not the face only…that would have been scary!
That first is an awesome pyramid of Ann-Christines. 🙂 What a temptation it would be to pull out one of the books at the bottom. 🙂
Haha, yes – I wonder if it would be nice to be out in so many copies. And yes – a BIG temptation to have a go at one of those books…
Yeah – I wonder the gardener’s story too – but nice to have a small encounter and just share human to human connection!
And loved the bulbs and all the reflections – hahah! Great shot and Merry Christmas Leya
Hehe – for once I am a star;-D Merry Christmas!
PS. hope your flu days are almost over
Thank you so much for your concern – and yes, I am feeling better. But still the occasional fever during the day. At least I can stay up most of the time!
Have a wonderful Christmas. And each of those photos, in their own way, expressed the humanity, the joy, the colour and the peace of this season.
Beautiful displays Ann-Christine and I especially love the image of the woman with her fruit and vegetables. Her produce has a vibrant energy as if it has been grown with love and devotion 💜 Merry Christmas to you too from the Scottish Highlands 🤗💖🎄 xxx
Thank you, I felt her joy too. Merry Christmas to you all!
Thank you Ann-Christine! 🤗💖 xxx
A wonderful, beautiful comment – thank You!
Merry Christmas Ann Christine!
Merry Christmas, Aletta!
Those book are OUTSTANDING. What a great display! Also love the Yak bells, reminds me of Nepal :-).
Ha, yes, I could hardly believe my eyes – just thinking how much time went into building that pillar…And the Yak bells were gorgeous – there was a whole street with only decorations for their Yaks. Mostly in red!
Merry Christmas Ann-Christine!!!
Merry Christmas, Paulo!
What a wonderful response. So much color! and detail. I wonder what would happen if you wanted to take out one of those books and look at it.
So glad you enjoyed it – and it is tempting to try a book…
I loved the shiny globes in your first picture. So festive!
Glad you enjoyed them too – didn’t realize I was in all of them at first…but then I kind of liked it.
Such a beautiful and fun response A-C, lived the sleigh bells and the “old” woman especially. She’s probably younger than we are 😊. Also loved your header
Haha, well, maybe she is younger…but it is hard to believe…
Merry Christmas, Anne Christine!
Merry Christmas to you as well!
What a star you are! Shining brightly at us from all those baubles 🙂 🙂 And those must be the most vivid chillies I ever saw. Wishing you all you wish yourself, Ann Christine! Peace, joy, harmony… a better world, but we are so privileged to be able to share this one.
Amazing displays! Love the hot one -🌶 🙃 Merry Xmas to u n urs 💝
Thanks! And the same to you and yours! May you have a spicy Christmas!
Thank you so much 😊
And I wish you the same, dearest Jo! We are indeed privileged, and let’s work for our children and grandchildren to be as well. Of course I am a star…didn’t realize it until now…
You are right – displays count a lot and you have some very nice ones. What I like most are the horse bells though 😀
Beautiful selections for display, A-C! The header is stunning. Love how they stack up books. 🙂 The horse bells are so special. Thank you for sharing with us! 🙂
Glad you liked it, Amy, a fantastic challenge! And I loved those Yak bells too.
Ah yes, the Yak bells were beautiful.
Merry Christmas Leya.
A great collection of displays. That book tower is amazing
Really, amazing it was! Thank you.
Merry Christmas, Kelly!
