Tucking history away for the night by 

Rivers of riven flesh remembered,
the cry of the butcher hawking,
now trodden by tourist feet,
tempted by coco not shank and loin.

A local shop assistant starts to lock up shop for the night at the junction of Shambles and Little Shambles in York.

Converted into black and white and best viewed large.

Shot on an Olympus E30.

Featured by the kind hosts of the Olympus and Four Thirds Group and the Unique Buildings of the World Group

  • I have another shot where she is really pushing the bottom of the grill into place and in the light, it looks like she is falling into the buildings lol thanks Dar

    Wow, I’m sure JK Rowling based the Diagon Alley on this! Great textures and contrasts in this. Fab!
