    I threatened to start a thread solely to post pictures of the windows of the Sage vegetarian cafe in Lancaster. Here we go!

    It started on January 13th 2020, a sodden wet, horrible dark winter's day.
    I called this one 'I read the news today, oh boy'

    Yesterday, I was out on the prowl with some Agfa Vista, expired 13 years ago. The first shots off the roll were...interesting. And red. But when I got to the cafe, this is what I was able to produce.

    And it's only fitting that this first chapter should end with a big flourish.
    So here it is.

    They let you in! Super timing and a fine 'first' shot.

    Ah yes, I walked in with camera on full view and they served me coffee. Maybe they haven't rumbled me yet, after all!

    You're going to get arrested, I think! Great stuff, though. You should offer prints to them for money or free grub.

    Freshly woven just that morning, so it was.
    Actually, it was very nice, as was the lunch.

    It is remarkable how many fine, interesting and very different images you have got from one spot.
    Keep it up and you will have enough for a coffee table book!

    I have been beginning to wonder what I am going to do when the weather warms up. Will there still be something of interest?

    I was out with the Spotmatic at lunchtime yesterday.
    A beautiful warm spring day = no wet window action.

    Is the ghostly chair for customers who have passed on but still want to drop in I wonder. :)

    A fine shot, lots of interest.

    Yes, and there's a ghostly toaster there in case they get peckish.
    The toast ghost - it's a thing!

    The ghost of loaves lost!

    I like the image a lot, Chris, but I think the colour ones have much more impact and I like the series that they are creating. It looks like you'll have to produce two books: one for the living and one for the dead. You might even need to employ a ghost writer I guess! :rolleyes:
