Thank you Weesue, I have been around FT for a while (over two years) but a couple of months ago I couldn't log on, it kept telling me my user name didn't exist! I contacted admin but never gor a reply! So, rather than loose all the great friends I had made I just started from scratch again. Since coming back I have discovered this has happened to quite a lot of users. I am aware that a lot of members have voiced concerns about the site, the admin, it's failure to update etc. but I feel it is about the members, we share images, we can all explore the world from our own homes through the eye's & lenses of fellow users, this is why I joined in the first place.

I haven't figured out how you got the angles just right without being in the photo...luck of the Irish maybe :-) The shopkeeper looks like an interesting fellow.

Looks very authentic!
Such traditional shops hardly exist anymore in the Netherlands.

Thank you senna3, they are dissapearing all to fast here to! I live in a rural area, 4Kms from my nearest shop, in a small village (one church, one shop & two pubs) called Boolteens. A trip to the shop for a litre of milk usually entails a half hour in the shop! The lady who runs it just loves to talk!

Just as it used to be just after the war in the little village (Oostvoorne) where I spent a year with my grandparents. Thinking back at that time awakes nostalgic feelings!
