Get Back to School with Redbubble – Shop Here! or Win Stuff Here!

Where butchers once flayed their wares,
this survivor of changing commerce,
now a home to hoarding shoppers,
this memory of Viking new homeland.

The Shambles in York, one of the most photographed streets in the UK in the aftermath of the Boxing Day sales.

Sometimes doing something different with the camera pays off, just check out the ghost head in the bottom right corner of the image. Hand held with live view and inbuilt Noise Reduction, not bad Olympus E30, not bad at all lol.

Converted into black and white and best viewed large.
