Tonight's walk - Giralang Shops [Jul. 26th, 2009|07:23 pm]

So didn't get to go for my walk today, had to wait until 6-ish this evening. When it was cold, and dark, and raining. So I didn't go far at all. In fact, I only went down to the local shops (10 minutes walk away), something I've been meaning to do since I moved here.

I didn't take any shots from the outside, as I only wanted a quick look through.



This is our local IGA. I couldn't find anything I wanted in the freezers, so I moved on.



As you can see, the IGA is nice and airy, which is good. Only knick-knack shops and bookshops should be cramped.



Finally in the back right hand corner I found a sign for something I actually wanted. Unfortunately they appeared to be all out, and I couldn't find a staff member to check for more for me. *chews furniture*



I'm not quite sure what this shop was meant to be, but I liked their light fixture...



...and their little desk thingy. I think I need to make it a sign "Psychiatric Help 5¢ - The Doctor Is Out"



I also wasn't sure what this shop used to be.



But I like their metal box.



I can't help but wonder, is this actually a SIDRAT?



Our local hairdresser's.



And here is the local eatery.









My favourite pic of the bunch, and it was also the first taken. I really needed a nice looking naked woman posed in the doorway in silhouette, but I couldn't find one.

And I checked around, twice!


Thinking about going back with my proper camera and a tripod. I hate using a flash, and while I'd still need it for some spots, some areas would be okay.

Awesome, if you find that staff member for that stock, let me know :-)

BONG ON

You finally got in there!

Are you going to post these to the abandonedplaces lj group? Or are you waiting until you get some tripod shots?

Yeah, it's only taken two years! LOL

And no climbing, which was nice.

If I haven't managed tripod shots by the end of the week, I'll post these up. It's a shame it's so exposed, I'd love some daylight shots.
