Title • for the business

I initially posted a different shot today, but I’ve taken it down again, as the more I looked at it, the less I liked it (I’ll try to rework it, but suspect that it’s destined for obscurity). I suppose that’s the downside of having a few shots in reserve – it’s tempting to think “no, I don’t like that, let’s go with something else instead”. That said, I’m not sure that this one is much better :-/

Actually, this is a routine thing for me. Whenever I’ve put something up that I really like (i.e. yesterday’s shot) the day after is always a bit of an anti-climax. No matter what I put up I’m inevitably dissapointed with it, and wish that I could have come up with something better.

No matter.

Anyway, this shot is one of several that I took a couple of days ago at a printers near to where I work. This building is actually an old pub (and all the signs are still in place) but, certainly as far as the exterior goes, its days of glory are over. I spoke to the owner while I was there, and he told me that he really thought the outside of the building would benefit from being cleaned – but I don’t suppose it would be anywhere near as (photographically) interesting if that ever happened.
