After Hours


Well I'm back for a few days, and then I'm turning my blog over to another guest photographer.
I hope you have enjoyed the "change of scenery " while I'm in Paris!

This is Treadwell's Barber Shop in Mountain Brook Village. They've been here as long as I can remember. (any Bham viewers know HOW long??). It was after hours and I took this through the window. Looks calm but during the day this place does a booming business.

Very cool feel to this picture. I love old barbershops, infact I just posted one yesterday on my Newtown blog. Do you know what the barber pole stands for? :-)

I can just imagine all the gossip that gets repeated there . When my son was small, I would take him to a barber for his haircuts and they had everyone one's pedigree - and everything else. Without coming right out and saying it!

Oh fantastic. I hope this doesn't change in the coming 100 years! Your photos of Paris btw are superb!

I've always wanted to go in and shoot in a "true, old fashioned" barbershop - excellent shot.

Love this shot. Something fascinting about barber's shops and it's not because of the one in Seville! Now over to Paris...

You can tell from this shot that it must be active during the day. Nice shot!
