It occurs to me that the dual parking meter on the left mimics Marilyn’s dress? Did you see it that way?
hi Steve – yes, but not at first. I was so focused on getting a shot of the window with the old buildings reflecting in them but then I noticed the single parking meter, then the double one and laughed and had to make my shot include them – plus I like that interesting door on the left!
This is great Sheila; there’s so much going on! Love the colours, composition, and the double parking meter link to Ms Munroe – ha ha! Brilliant.
thanks M – the subtle approach to symbology!
Great shot! The red really pops with the blue of the storefront.
thank you Ted – it sure stands out .. ha ha..
Nice store front capture, Sheila, it really tells a story.
thanks Wayne – coming from the ‘king of storefront photography’ that is indeed a compliment!
And those touches of red repeated from the poster in the meters, and the Mikado poster, and on the grey vertical wall – her lipstick perhaps?! Nice work!
thanks – the red is an added bonus – especially on the wall.
Great composition. A photographer sees art waiting to happen. Well done !
thank you! and sometimes only the photographer can see what they see.. ha ha if you know what I mean.
I like the geometric patterns of the bricks in the wall and floor, the arches in a row and the framing of the parking metres, but Marylyn adds a touch of glamour, as was her way. 🙂
thanks Hallysann – Marilyn certainly was one of a kind!
So imagine, ehmmm…. Ahaaa…
ha ha… 🙂
