Another One Bites The Dust by 


Another shop in Loughborough feels the hammer blow of the recesion. This shoe repair and key cutting shop closed about 2 years ago and the premises haven’t been occupied since. The note of apology to customers is still stuck on the inside of the door today. Only time will tell if any new tenants will have better luck.

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)

    Sign of the times.

    Unfortunately we live in a disposable society so the logic is “why on earth would you want to get something repaired when you can replace it”?

    Just doesn’t make any sense to me, I was always taught to buy the best I could afford and then look after them. I’m still wearing shoes that I bought twenty something years ago and they are as good as new,. They get taken back and put onto the original last and virtually rebuilt. They feel like new old friends, perfectly balanced, comfortable and ready to go on for years to come.

  • Thanks for the comment, David. You’re right, there’s too much complacency about objects these days, either necassary ones or coverted ones.
