Wide angle photo journalism, my sort of take on the world. Excellent. And while I'd automatically go the b&w route, colour here is pretty bleak and cheerless.
I was in a Hexham department store this morning, a week before Christmas and it was empty. Mind you, it deserved to be...

Sad to see such a well decorated mall so empty but not surprising. I wouldn't be surprised if at least one UK retail chain collapses this winter. A sign of the times.

Online shopping has taken it's toll this year.
So many retailers suffering from a lack of customers.

It has to be colour, it wouldn't be a strong mono for a start.
It appears people have gone to great effort in the decoration and acquiring stock, so it's a pity there are few shoppers. It's interesting to note that you're experiencing the same lack of shoppers as we are here in the UK. Maybe the reasons are different, maybe some reasons are the same...

Fabulous view point, Leo. A lovely Christmas image.

And yes, the shops and stores are suffering all over the modern world, sadly. But then I guess we can't have everything. When money is an issue and the internet is so accessible and most items cheaper, it's kind of a natural process. It's still nice to go and look around the shops though and be able to see and feel items that we're thinking of buying.
But, to every plus, there's a minus of course. One of the big pluses is that the internet has helped to keep a certain amount of traffic off of the roads which would otherwise be sending nasty's up into the atmosphere. I can't imagine the roads here in Kent being any more congested, they're almost at a stand still already. So, for everyone missing from the shopping malls, there's a car not being used to go to town and back again. My main worry is: What will replace our shops? More houses? Homes for the homeless? Tacky cheap shops run by emigrants? I have a feeling that some towns and city's will become no go area's for ordinary people.
Anyway, off of my soap box and a very good day to you, Leo.Smile
