I took this shortly before it was closing. The fella who owned the shop had run it for 43 years, I bought all of my socks and some other stuff from him for about 20 years. This shop was the only place I could get Australian made woollen business socks, which were about the best on the market.
Shot in December 2009. The white car in the background wasn't there when I composed and as I was about to the click the shutter, I stopped and re-swept the footpath as it was a warm summer day with wind constantly blowing leaves and stuff. By the time I had a clean footpath, the white car was there; I took the shot.
Uncropped, or at least only cropped by the V800 Epson scanner film holder.
