Open seven days a week.....


Spotted in Palmerston Street, one of the many Asian stores that are open seven days a week in the Northbridge area. I'm not sure if it was the hat that attracted my attention (note the 'stylish' flower on the side..love it!!), more likely it was the eclectic array of merchandise, everything from footstools to washing baskets to umbrellas and that was just on the outside, can you imagine the intriguing range of Asian foodstuffs inside. Very sensible lady choosing to work outside while soaking up the winter sunshine at the same time! We won't be soaking up much winter sunshine this weekend here in Perth, rain is forecast for the next few days, so happy I planted my new garden bed before it started, love the thought of those new roots soaking up all that lovely rainwater. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday, take care.....

  1. What a great shot for the day, Grace! I always love your "people" shots! We have lots of Asian shops and markets here in Seattle and they are always interesting to visit with such a variety of items! Thanks so much for your good wishes!! Have a great weekend!

  4. We even have one Asian emporium in our little town, about the only store on the local "strip" that does open 7-days-a-week.

  7. Hmmm, I've just had a late dinner and now I'm craving Asian food (make that Vietnamese please!) Have a great Sunday too, nothing like a rainy day for a good book, a cuppa and putting that leg up!

  8. This is a sentimental shot. I love it to show the cluttering nature of the store and the lonely figure of the back side

  12. Must try & visit Perth soon, in the meantime enjoying your shots very much! As for the weather - what more could the garden ask for - rain followed by sunshine!

  13. Good that you planted just in time for a good soaking! Have a great week Grace.

  14. I like your black and white take here. Very appropriate:) You inspired me to put some noodles on the stove right now:) Thanks. I also love a newly planted garden soaking up the rain. Just did some of that today. Oh my gods, did the sun take all of my life essence. I was even in the shade!!! Hope all the new plants get established:)

  15. Estas fotos en blanco y negro, desprenden mucha magia. Parecen sacadas de hace muchos años.

    Saludos y un abrazo.

  16. Do you remember when everything was closed on a Sunday? I do. The streets were quiet, there as certainly no shopping to be done. I miss those days.

  17. Yep, nice one. Black and white make it....have a good weekend Grace...

  20. This is a really neat shot! So typical of the Asian markets - very nice candid shot!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I can see some typical Asian handicrafted items there. It seems Chinese shops are more appealing in Perth than here, where it's all plastic and ugly.

  22. Such an interesting area and love this B&W shot. Good time to have done some gardening Grace. Have a great week.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Plenty Chinese shops around here as well, but they're all closed on Sundays. You'll need to go to the Filipino or Pakistani.

  24. Love places like this. They are great for exploring. I woke up to gray skies and I'm hoping they produce a little rain for here. I won't bet on it but, I can hope.

  25. I have the utmost respect for anyone who works 7 days a week, especially in retail. I'm sure the inside offers some great opportunities for some shots too.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I agree with other posters that the inside must hold intriguing opportunities for photos. Love the b&w here, and that you captured the Chinese characters from the sign! (I also think people who work 7 days a week are amazing, such work ethic.)

  27. so hard to remember its rounding to the end of your winter ..

  28. Hmmm...somehow I missed this one. Nothing like a multiplicity of people from various backgrounds to liven up a place.

    Re your comment on The Villages: I wasn't in the line (queue) because I was taking pictures. Wait, we were in the line. But then, being special friends of Suzanne, we had special tickets and got in first with front-row seats which meant I took more photos. I remain a skeptic, although Suzanne is a wonderful person in every way and absolutely and resolutely honest and ethical and well-meaning. Lois and she have formed a special bond.

  29. There is something about the first photo. I don’t get tired staring at it. The owner of the store must be very hard working.
