Photos of Shops

1990s

I began photographing shop fronts around Edinburgh in the 1990s.  Sometimes the road was clear in front of the shops, but often there was a car parked 'in the way'.

Then I noticed:

-  Sometimes I felt that the car added to the character of the photo.

-  Sometimes the car colour matched the shop colour.  So I started looking for more matching cars and shops.

Here are a few that I found:

Citroen 2CVs

I particularly liked the Citroen 2CV, as they were not too large and were often painted in attractive two-tone shades.

 I started photographing 2CVs parked in front of shops, then went on to take more photos of 2CVs parked around Edinburgh, but without the shops!
