I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling. View all posts by Heyjude

Great opportunity to use a blurred photo. Arrested in flight! I like this one. My Karen Millen days never happened but I can look with the best. 🙂 🙂
[should I admit to not knowing who Karen Millen is?]
I wouldn’t if I were you 🙂 🙂
Uh no Jude! But by the time I could afford to shop there I wouldn’t have looked good 🙂
From the comments I guess the clothing is expensive. And probably best on a size 8.
I don’t know who Karen Millen is either … but great capture with him (?) right in the centre of the circle. Was that a deliberately planned shot, or a lucky coincidence?
Woman I think, and yes totally coincidental. I was of course fascinated with the tiled floor. [I get the feeling that KM is probably veeery expensive]
The tiled floor was the first thing I noticed 🙂
A beauty. And those arches and stained glass are pretty nice too 🙂
I think that will be true!!
Funnily enough I do know what Karen Millen is! Take two credit cards, if you intend to shop there…Founded in the 80s by Karen Millen, now owned by a bank.
Nice shot for the theme, Jude, and duly nailed!
Best wishes, Pete. x
The OH should be grateful then that I prefer M&S jeans and a tee-shirt 😀
Nicely done, Jude!
It was hard to get a shot in that centre without people, being shortly before Christmas. Glad I hung onto this one 🙂
Perfect photo for this challenge. It was the colours in the arches that caught my attention first.
It is a beautiful Victorian shopping mall. Can you believe they were going to pull it down in the 1980s! Fortunately it was saved and then fully restored to its former beauty.
I think lots of mistakes were made in the 80s – some of them were things that were built and some were things that were knocked down. 😦 I’m glad this one won a reprieve.
Never shopped in Karen Miller either. Love the arcade though, where is that?
I LOVE my blogging buddies!! The arcade is in central Sydney. A gorgeous building. Can’t say I took much notice of the shops inside.
Captures the essence of the craziness of shopping with all that blurred speed. I’ve never even heard of Karen Millen!
Which is exactly why we are friends Meg 🙂
Love this; and it’s such a great shot for the challenge 😀
A lucky shot!
Love the tile patterns and the stained glass arches, very nice, and those people look to be in a great hurry to get the shopping done too. I don’t know KM either, maybe not over here or on my radar…
Well this is taken in the QVB in Sydney, so she is obviously over there, but not on your radar (or mine, or many of my blogging friends it seems). It is a fab building.
The QVB is indeed a beautiful building. I don’t take much notice of high end shops do I??? I always wonder how they make any profit as there never seems to be anyone in them as I walk by in the shopping centres. I’m thinking maybe they only need to sell one thing a week!!!
I’n terrified to go inside shops like that, always afraid that an assistant will pounce on me. And I totally avoid shops with no price tags in the window displays.
My sentiments exactly
