You want it, we got it-Kensington
« on: December 19, 2018, 14:33:02 »
I've been bad for the last six or seven months and haven't been shooting much at all. Last Sunday, I was downtown and waiting for my wife and grand-daughter so I went to Kensington to kill time and walked around. I passed one of the neighbourhood stores that deals in used goods of every description. The owner always brings a ton of merchandise out onto the sidewalk, and then spends the day sitting on the doorstep reading the paper. I liked the story, and grabbed this shot.

I shoot with film. That's film. F...i...l...m. You remember film. It was in all the papers.

Thanks Fons.
I think you may have misunderstood what I meant. I was not ill, but rather just a little tired of photography and needed a rest from it so wasn't doing any shooting. Physically I'm fine, but just need some inspiration to push myself to get out and get back into it.

Rob, It's always nice to see your street shots

I've shot a significantly reduced number of images during 2018, with other activities taking priority over photography

Robert, I was also worried about your health when I first found this thread.

Glad to know you didn't have any serious problems.  Your images are unique here in NG.
