One Word Photo Challenge-Sale

~~~~~

In my youth I always thought that a ‘Sale’ sign

meant all items were selling at reduced prices

Not the case though, is it?

I cannot remember where I saw this plate of goodies,

but there is every chance it was on a holiday,

or special occasion,

and we did pay through the nose for the privilege.

But the plate of goodies was for sale…at a price!

We did not put our hands in our pockets for this gondola ride.

At least not on the day.

However, I think it would be a safe bet to say

the gondoliers received payment for services

from Trafalgar Tours.

Monies which we paid Trafalgar.

I call this the sail…different spelling though.

What the Burj Al Arab had for sale was High Tea.

A three-hour experience which,

while not as affordable as a daily coffee,

was well worth every cent of its selling price.

That three hours did not include time spent

purchasing new clothes befitting

the occasion and the venue.

Even my photos are for sale…at a price.

However, I don’t think I will ever be known for my photos.

I participated in an Arts Trail weekend in March

and displayed some photos in previous art shows.

I discovered that having a piece of art for sale

and having it sold are poles apart.
