Turning Grey Years Into Colour.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for your much appreciated response to my 'Signs of the Times 2'.

(I have now added lots of stuff to my website including six more travel pages and an extended; About Me page.)Smile

Well anyway, as soon as I spotted this lovely colourful lady, I just had to ask if she would mind me taking pictures of her. I particularly like those awesome boots; V1, which she had specially made for her, somewhere in Cornwall. The coat was bought at a previous year's Rochester Christmas market. (The hot takeaway drink is now common place.)

Sadly, the shop in Rochester that used to sell wonderful footwear similar to her boots, had to close after the first lockdown. Hopefully, their main shop in Brighton is still in business.

Many thanks once again for your friendship and support.
All the best to all and take care out there,

John Smile

“Puss in Boots” - A splendid set, John. The footwear puts her a step ahead of the crowd.

Fabulous John

Just the sort of person I'd approach for a photo ... colourful and interesting

Funny you mention the shoe shop. In Brighton a couple of years ago we ended up in a small shoe shop in The Lanes which sold just these type of shoes. Maybe it was the same owners.

It was a big mistake going in as I ended up buying Linda and Laura shoes!

I wish I could remember the name of the shoe shop so that I could check out the one in Brighton, Colin. Maybe someone on here could provide an answer? Smile

I think the shoe shop in Brighton is called: Irregular Choice, if so, then it appears they are still in business. Hooray! Smile

Nothing A4 about her - and good for her, the world needs colourful characters, especially at the moment...

on the contrary
