The Shopper

Daily Post Photo Challenge | A Face in the Crowd

Published by


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.

  1. 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. 🙂 🙂

  2. 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?

    1. 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]

  3. 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

    1. 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.

    1. 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.

  4. 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…

    1. 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.

      1. 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!!!

        1. 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.
