Coney Street in York is the ghetto where most of the chain stores have been dumped in order to protect the rest of the city. Somehow it has a totally different feel, harder and colder.
If you have time, please view Large.
Thanks for looking,

no soul! not very busy though.
i still remember the high street in the town i grew up in sainsburys had a wonderfully tiled lined bow fronted glass counter deli & the fruit & veg shop was like out of a dickens story. shame time stops for no one unless your a museum curator that is! you captured the sterility nicely & bnw for me.

Nice streetscene Moira. Don't know why but my eye keeps settling on the blonde studying the sale window. Prefer the vibrancy of No. 2.

Plenty to look at here Moira.
Love the expressions of the young couple...they have both got their sights on something.
The young mum looks a bit frustrated, & the blonde lady can't quite make her mind up about something she has seen in the window...everyone else is just busy going about their business.
Oh yes...the colour version for me.

A street that could be anywhere; I wouldn't have known it was in York. #1 suits your feeling about it and works well, but I prefer the acid yellow colour kick in 2.

Well,you will know what catches MY eye!!! A blonde and a brunette to boot too!!! Talking of which,a very nice pair on the blonde.At first I thought that was a little yellow mini she had on,but sadly it is only a plastic bag.The brunette on the other hand is more suitably attired to show of her fine assets.But why oh why could you have not waited ,and captured the gentleman, while in the proceess of the backward swing with his carrier bag!!!!! No wonder they are trying to ban these things!!!Still a very pleasing image for a dull grey Wednesday morning.Nice one Moira.

ghetto must mean something different on your side of the pond. Looks like the cleanest safest ghetto I've ever seen. Love the monochrome, something about your particular style of street photographey that really works either way but is just brilliant in mono.

That girl kind of looks like the young american actress that is always in and out of rehab too. her name escapes me at the moment.

Love the mono version for the fact that we have to concentrate on shapes and dynamics. Simplifies a scene which otherwise would be a lot to take in at once.

Excellent candid Moira and your usual great job of capturing streetlife and the variety of activity.
Love the girl pondering whether she can afford to buy a new island, and the expressions on the couple are great - guess you must have been hidden in a letterbox toget this close without them spotting you.
