Boxing Day stroll in old town (F31)

I hadn't taken the F31 for a walk for a long time (since I bought the P7100) but on Boxing Day I thought I'd give it some exercise. The venue was the main shopping street in the old town of Nicosia, where all was happening years ago but now it is 'pedestrians only' and a favorite place for afternoon-evening walks, with a plethora of street vendors and entertainers adding to the atmosphere.

Due to the crowds moving, pushing and getting in the way, one  has to be quick on the shutter and very approximate in framing/composition. Still, I think the shots convey the spirit of the day...

This little shop has gone though all kinds of catering business over the years, from juices to milkshakes, to sandwiches, kebabs, beers, traditional cakes etc. Now it serves French type of cakes and sports the posh name of 'La Croisanterie'!.

The main old shopping street (Ledra street) commonly known as the 'Long' Street as it rolls for more than 200 meters! Distances are small in Cyprus...

Stand selling corn on the cob and hot chestnuts. Plus some garments for good measure. Diversification is the name of the game these days...
