Love these old books... quickly grabbed this shot in a shop window as my friend was talking to me..

Using my mobile phone..

Its from a very interesting book shop that has lots of old and rare books, I could spend hours in here, but couldn't this day.

(my neck is coming along ok, with accupuncture treatment..
just not got to spend too long on here!) Thank you all for your
comments and good wishes.

That is my kind of store! Could happily spend the day in there. Love your very vintage looking shot. Good to know your neck is recovering, but not fun, is it. VV

There you used to be a lovely old bookshop near me, and I'm sure I could have made several PADs there, except that it decided to close just before I started the project.

Didn't know you had neck problems - I hope you will soon be 100% but just follow good advice:)
