I took this picture because I wanted to talk about the window, not because I was particularly interested in it as a picture.
But the more I look at it, the more I like it simply because there is so much character in the window. What I wanted to talk about originally was just the shape of the window.
I like the way the birds are caught in the pane of glass, the dilapidation of the window frame, it looks like a full on rot at the bottom of the frame.
This is obviously a very old window. Unfortunately, of the several books I have about the town none of them have a picture or refer to it (there is a similar window further down the high street which is mentioned). I like the way the relatively modern technology of the CCTV camera and the cable intrude in to the picture and that it is above a popular barbers.
One of those pictures that you expect nothing of, which then turns into a bit of a gem (the object that is, not my picture.
