A second old snapshot…

EPSON scanner imageYes, here’s another scanned black and white 35mm negative from my days of old-style film and darkroom photography. This one was taken… oh, I don’t know… probably in the 1980s or 1990s? I don’t suppose it matters much when it was taken.

I think that the piece of corrugated metal with ‘AXI etc’ painted on it, leaning against the wall, is the office’s front door. I suspect that the large area of the shed behind my friend has been recently painted white, not in an attempt to smarten the place up, but probably just to cover up some embarrassing spray painted graffiti which spoiled the ‘look’ of the place, and might put off any potential customers from venturing inside…
I remember saying to Val, ‘Hey, just walk across in front of that taxi office, and I’ll take a quick snap – your stripy legs will look great in black and white!…’ Click!…
