As I See It

As I See It

Layering an eye of an aspirant photographer over my mature development planner’s eye has given me new lenses through which to view the “happenings” around me. During my spare time I capture some of these images.

Picture perfect store fronts

The exterior of coffee shops fascinate me! From peculiar painted porches to glamorous gazebos with outdoor seating, cafes are so different the world over.

While each eatery is unique in design, they all aim to do the same thing – attract potential customers. They jostle for our attention with brightly coloured tablecloths and neat umbrellas or pretty flower boxes and funky signage.

What is it that inspires each owner’s distinct take on what will make a shop front attractive? I can’t help but wonder what my store front would look like if I had a little coffee shop of my own.
