Get Back to School with Redbubble – Shop Here!

In the backstreets of South Melbourne in Victoria came across this old shop front that now has been converted to a home but the owners have left the old signs alone to preserve the history of the building.

I tend to work in HDR because of the depth and effects it brings to the shots. As i say as long as you are proud of your finished work thats what counts, you dont need to be concerned about pleasing everyone.
