The window dressers.....!!


When I was much younger (don't even go there!!!) amongst the many and highly diverse career choices I contemplated including journalist (now disillusioned), archeologist (is it too late?), air hostess (too short!) there was a desire to create fantastic window displays, I know, go figure!!  I still love looking at them and silently judging..  'no surely not, you're never putting that with that, what are you thinking!!' you know that sort of thing. Hmmm! maybe it's not too late for this.....!!
This is one of the shiny new shops on the ground level of the building known as 140 William Street, more about this building on a more serious note tomorrow.

  1. Shop windows ARE and art form. There are some delightful ones in Sydney that I check out regularly. Nothing modern and glassy like you have here though ...

  6. haha, i think we have the same err..
    frustrations..^0^
    i studied Interior design but never used it.
    after i graduate, it was straight to business matter, a pity as sometimes, i think "what if" or "if only..." at the back of my head and wish i were this and that.
    oh well... story of my life... ^0^

    nice window display btw.

  7. Wow! It's certainly eye-catching!! Sadly, I don't have enough good taste to be good at interior design ... probably why I spend a lot of time outside!!

  8. Very eye-catching shot. I like the fact you captured a person passing by, he adds a lot to the photo.
