Cresser's Shop was on the Ground Floor.  The upper floors were used as a workshop and for storage.

Often when travelled around Edinburgh photographing shops and restaurants, I found cars parked  in front of them.
Usually, I would return later, but if I felt that the car matched the shop, I took the photo.

at 96 West Bow at another shop, also painted dark blue with hanging baskets, similar to the shop in the photo below.

SHOPS

AND

CARS

 

Shops and Cars

One of the problems that I encountered in photographing shops was that there were often cars parked in front of them, so I might have to return several times before I could take the photo that I wanted.

Then I found some cars with a bit more character parked in front of the shops.

I also found that the colours of some of the cars matched the colours of the shops:

I particularly liked the Citroen 2CVs.  They were small so did not get in the way of the shop and they came in an attractive range of colours.  Here are three that I photographed around Edinburgh.

POLICE
BOXES

 

Street Furniture

I've taken an interest in street furniture around Edinburgh, and have been taking photos of:

-  Lamp Posts

-  Road Signs

-  Post Boxes

-  Telephone Boxes

-  Police Boxes

I've photographed all the police boxes (See table below) and followed the progress of some, as they have been sold to the public then converted into coffee stalls and for other uses.

A Third Picture

Thank you to Neil Lawrence for also noticing that there was also a picture on the right-hand side of this box, and photographing it for me (below).   Calton Hill and the Scott Monument can be seen in the background of this picture

I returned to check what was on the back of the box (the side that's against the wall) but found that it was still painted blue.
