Hexham's violin shop has an elegantly curvaceous security grille, which seems to echo the stock displayed in the window.
Unfortunately the lockdown window also features a large Sainsbury carrier bag, which somewhat restricts compositional options...
Thanks for looking,

A nice musical theme for today, Moira, well spotted, shame about the bag but no doubt it has its purpose 🙂 well spotted, sounds a very good shop 🎻

Thanks folks.
That's a bit of old carpet to the left of the violin. The Sainsbury's bag is out of frame on the right, hence the tight crop.
It's a business that eschews glossy packaging... Wink

Elegantly curvaceous strikes a note.

Wrought iron which wants to be a treble clef, but had to be content with playing second fiddle...

I perfectly understand your frustration at the Sainsbury's bag. One would have expected Safeways, at least, or even better, Fortnum & Mason in a shop selling classical musical instruments.

Malc, the best Hexham could manage would be a Waitrose bag... Wink

I was always very glad that our daughter opted for the flute... Wink A friend's son chose the trumpet, she suffered.
Thanks to Alfie for his UA!

Harmony indeed Moira. the clef like grill nicely framing the violin and its curves echoed by the f-holes and shape of the instrument.

You could bag yourself a Sainsbury's bag image, Moira! (Sorry, couldn't resist) 😁 A fine capture of the curves, mirroring the f-holes of the violin behind 😃👍
