An architectural study today.
The row of shops that this building is a part of is, I believe, over a hundred years old and parts of it make excellent subjects.
This particular business is a traditional shoe repair shop and the man that owns and runs it is as traditional as the shop itself. He can turn his hand to repairing just about anything that's made from or contains predominantly leather.
I've seen shoes that anyone else would consign to the bin, repaired, rebuilt and rejuvenated, very often using bits and pieces that were never intended for that particular type of shoe, if they were ever intended to finish up as a part of a shoe at all!
I'm hoping to, one day, be allowed to take a few shots inside. It's a few steps below street level and absolutely full of "stuff."
He's a really friendly old fellow. I reckon her might agree in exchange for a print or two. A small price to pay, I reckon!
