Mallory Square Impressions

This is my lovely husband, David, with his booth at Mallory Square, where he is selling his original Fine Art Paintings and prints of Key West scenes and tropical subjects. He is a very talented artist and his work can be found all over the world in many collections and private homes.

You can see more of his work on our website
www.vanhulstart.com



Here you can see the big traffic that we have almost every evening and especially on weekends, like yesterday. A lot of the visitors were Jimmy Buffet's Parrotheads who had their fun weekend on the island.



And this woman looks somehow like me.... with two customers at my booth who are looking at my photographs that I sell.



If you look closer into the picture, you will see Alex (with the hat) our performer guy with his juggling act shortly before sunset. Can you see what a wonderful, dramatic sunset going on in the back of the picture?

People from all over the world are watching this spectacle at
Mallory Square.




And this is the fantastic view that I have (almost) every night at Mallory Square. I would never ever trade this place with any indoor job in the world. To be able to see mother nature's magic and to be "at work" in the same time, is priceless!

Love the last photo! Looks like a very busy market!

Susanne in Key West said...

Hi Jenty,

It IS a very busy place, yes. In season are more tourists here then we have just now. Season is between January up to end of Mai.Then it's still nice and warm for many people coming from the snowing northern places.

Thanks for your comment.

I love the square at sunset. Does the guy with the trained cats still perform there? How about the straight jacket and chain escape artist?
How about the "cookie lady" who rides her bike around?
(I'm not sure how long you've lived there...these were people I remember on the docks from the early 1990s)

he is still performing, yes, but over by the Westin Hotel (ex Hilton)

The Cookie Lady won the Lottery and she moved away!

We have still one escape artist "The great Rondini" (the black guy), the other one, Michel, is sitting in jail...:-)

I'm there since December 2001!

Thanks for commenting. You can ask me anytime more questions...:-)

Suesanne, nice sunset shots especially the last one. Why don't you show your hasband fine art paintings in your blog? It looks very beautiful : )

Susanne in Key West said...

Thanks for the nice comment, DigitalShutterMania!

Maybe that's a god idea to show my hubby's work in my blog. I have to talk with him what he is thinking about, getting big promotions.:-)

Thanks for the compliment to his paintings. Very appreciated!
