Christmas Market

To be honest, I hesitated to classify my first photo outing since the end of 2015 in the "urbex" category. Indeed, my good town of Mouscron seems to have been totally abandoned by dignity and basic intelligence. And as you know, abandonment is the main theme of the urban exploration.

This nocturnal and rainy visit was made to the famous and envied Christmas Market in Mouscron.
And I must say that I'm happy : given the absence of people, there is no need to wait a long time to be able to take my photos in peace. It seems that by day, onlookers are hardly more numerous. However, the show is worth it !
There are three main commercial activities :

There are also some fairground attractions for children.

To finish my speech, some extracts from conversations heard or addressed to me :

The only slightly clever sentence was "Beautiful light for a photo." to which I spontaneously respond "This is the only good thing here.". That's done !

I love my city... Poor me...
