Something a little different from the recent snow frenzy! ๐Ÿ˜… After doing some grocery shopping last night I stopped for a brief moment to take this shot on my phone. This shopping area is part of the new face of my hometown, it was completed just over a year ago. #smfc #brief #iphone6plus #bnw

hogman72664 or david: Doesn't look too popular, or was this late night. Curiously devoid of people. A little sickening to see all the familiar names in these places, so unimaginative of our councils/developers. Like the blacks on this, especially M&S. :):)xx

charmychelle: Yes, it was after 7pm when I took this shot and you might have guessed that Iโ€™d just come out of Marks and Spencer! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh, if only you knew of all the problems that were faced before it was finished, it was a highly controversial project, believe me! It apparently cost an astronomical amount to build and was delayed a few times, I would imagine to raise more money. The development hasnโ€™t been finished yet, thereโ€™s a new cinema being built close by, which we really didnโ€™t need and is another waste of money! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ The aim of the council? To convince the locals and those who live a short distance away that Stafford has absolutely everything we need, we donโ€™t need to go to Telford/Wolverhampton/Birmingham etc... Is it working? I really donโ€™t think so yet... On the bright side we now have 3 Costas, including one just around the corner! ๐Ÿ˜… Thanks a lot, have a great evening! xxx

charmychelle: How odd! I had to put the full name of Marks and Spencer for it to go through, and yet itโ€™s fine to use the abbreviation in the comments... ๐Ÿค”

charmychelle: Thanks Jerry, I was really impressed with how my phone handled it, I only had to do a few minor adjustments on Snapseed. Iโ€™d just come out of Marks and Spencer with heavy bags and stopped by some benches for a break. It was after 7pm so there were only a few people around. It looks nice enough but there was a lot of controversy over its construction in the first place...but thatโ€™s a story for another time. โ˜บ๏ธ Iโ€™m delighted you like it, Happy Sunday to you! ๐Ÿ™Œ

_alessandro_: Davvero complimenti per questo staordinario scatto in bianco e nero!!! Posso riconoscere anche il logo M&S, in quanto dove lavoro io, stampiamo etichette di Olio, che un nostro cliente (Olitalia) produce ed esporta in Inghilterra per Marks & Spencer, Per poter lavorare con questo marchio, abbiamo ricevuto la certificazione BRC (British Retail Consortium).

charmychelle: Ahh questo รจ molto interessante, Ale, provo a cercare i prodotti la prossima volta. โ˜บ๏ธ Sono contenta che ti piaccia la foto, sono stata davvero colpita ancora dalla prestazione del smartphone con la fotografia in bianco e nero. ๐Ÿ˜Š Grazie ancora, buona serata a te! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’–

charmychelle: Aww thanks Daniel, Iโ€™m glad you like it, it was just one of those spur of the moment things! ๐Ÿ˜„

dylan $$: Bella architettura, mi piace molto il gioco che si sviluppa tra le linee diritte e squadrate e quelle arquate, il tutto mediato dalla prospettiva. Il b/w completa l'effetto. Bello scatto davvero ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒŸ

charmychelle: Ma grazie Capo, avevo appena comprato cibo per le truppe ed ero stanca, quindi mi sono preso una pausa. Ho provato la modalitร  originale ma non ha funzionato per me, il bianco e nero ha tirato fuori meglio i dettagli. โ˜บ๏ธ Sono lieta che ti piaccia la mia prospettiva dellโ€™architettura. Dolcenotte a te e mille grazie ancora! ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ“ฑ๐Ÿ’ฃโš”๏ธ

charmychelle: Thanks Pini! ๐Ÿ˜Š It isnโ€™t really a big shopping area, the town is quite small and thereโ€™s no room for a big mall. Have a great week my friend! ๐Ÿ™Œ

defimage2222: Just works on every level...,great location for this mono image ๐Ÿ˜Ž

charmychelle: Thanks Dee, I just took a short break from carrying heavy shopping bags but rather than do nothing, I took this shot! ๐Ÿ˜ This is part of a highly controversial project to โ€œmodernizeโ€ Stafford, far too much money went into it and if you remember, beautiful buildings like the Shire Hall lie empty with a future still unknown...and the council complained that it cost a lot of money to keep it open... ๐Ÿ™„ Personally I would have preferred keeping the traditional town but there you go... Iโ€™m glad you like the image anyway! ๐Ÿ˜‰
