My face and camera are just to the right of the man's raised elbow. I deliberately positioned myself against a light area, because reflections are less prominent like that.

I just can't imagine the great Jimi Hendrix and fish and chips. Those were the days.

One of my favourites, and I uploaded a series in her honour a couple of years ago, after we ran a project on her. I may revisit the idea.
EDIT - I did a filtered search on my portfolio for this set , hope the link works...

i spot a familiar face (the lady wearing glasses) and your own reflection in the region of the gent's raised elbow

great shot and title, dear Moira
p.s. and a quote:
It's funny how most people love the dead, once you're dead, you're made for life.
~ Jimi Hendrix

Interesting comment and a great quote, Leo.
I don't know any of the people in the shop, to the best of my knowledge none of them has ever appeared in my portfolio. But the guy background left with the staring eyes is definitely Sam Eagle from the Muppets...

At least one person has spotted you taking the picture! A very good example of making something out of not very much!

Back in those days rock stars would try smoking anything, so a bit sceptical about Hendrix eating the chips...
Spot on about Sam Eagle, Moira!

Like I said before... observation, that's what counts. Add me to the Jimi Hendrix appreciation club, I am the right age!
1967... I was still a student, happy days!

Amazing how some people stand the test of time - my son at the age of about 15 had a poster of Jimi Hendrix in his room along with Bob Marley and Mohammed Ali

That's what I've been thinking Irene. I can't imagine that I would have had a poster of a WW1 star on my wall as a teenager...
