Nice tones and colors.
My first job in London was in holborn. At the time, the costa cafe that you can see on this picture was a little old cafe. Giving good expressos, selling nice croissants and making wonderfull cakes. It is sad to see that all little shop are being replaced by big chains in this country. Not that costa coffe do not sell good products, it just that the whole standardisation that I can't stand.
France is still resisting, but I bet that in ten or twenty years time it will be the same. :-((


Ho, and a bit further, there where a shop call "Lee's Camera" that wouls sell all kind of gears, new or old. That closed when a Jessops got nearby. :-/

Thanks Tophee. I agree. I lived in Red Lion Square for a couple of years. Just before I left, the huge Sainsbury supermarket opened on the corner (bottom right of the pic). The small shops began to suffer as a result. (Although I was secretly pleased as they gave my Bangladeshi flatmate discounts which they didn't offer me!) One of my favourite aspects of Paris is the fact that it hasn't become standardised in the same way as all English cities. It still has some identity as do its inhabitants. Smile
