Pics from the weekend before last (just got round to downloading them ....

1 - 4 Rubbish and Nasty ... a shop in New Cross that more than lives up to it's name .... it is always closed when I go by, so pics taken through the window .... I have chosen the best of the window display ....

5. Greenwich Market .... a nice array of cowboy hats for Sprocket .... (a nearly Birthday pressie, but good taste won out in the end) ....

6. A hairstylist (I think that is what they are called these days .... I have never actually used one, preferring, the mirror, an elastic band and a pair of kitchen scissors) .... this was also in Greenwich Market .... one chair, lots of superheros, the occassional Barbie and a buddha in the corner ... oh yes and lots of very bright, very pink paint .....

Actually, if I remember correctly, the mannequins were in the window of the shop next door (also closed) an equally tasteful establishment ... :-)

Thanks, OJ and Nige, 'tis nice (and a novelty) to be complimented on my photos!

MaggieD says:

P: The salon was empty, not a stylist in sight .... I was so disappointed, just as I had plucked up the courage to get my first ever haircut .....

Sprocket says:

I don't think I could go in a shop that had a big scary mouth for a doorway, as I went in I would think that I was being eaten. eek!

Great selection of hats though.

Wot! Not had a haircut, not never?

MaggieD says:

Never had a haircut at a hairdressers, I just trim the end of my ponytail myself every few months ...... sheer laziness .....

Sprocket says:

I have reached that age where I can just shave my own barnet.

Dhamaka says:

wow - these are visually arresting shots

I've not had a haircut for years. I don't trim my own hair though - just let it grow or fall out

taniwha says:

really? Doesn't just grow further and further down to your knees?

OJ says:

Eek! I get really fed up if it's more than a month since my last haircut. Like now. I'll say it again though - great set :)

Your photographs are always wonderful. You obviously have the eye, for subject matter, composition and the like.

MaggieD says:

Thank you Factotum, that is such a lovely compliment :) ...... I am afraid that I am really not very 'camera aware' ..... I am always wise after the event .... when I do take pics (like this series) it is usually because I have gone back somewhere with the camera having already passed it by thinking, 'I really should take some pics of this' .... but I am getting better .... :)
