“Good Day”

Sydney July-August 2013 (2 images)

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
…Charles Dickens, A tale of two cities (1859)

The opposite sides of the coin. Good days. Bad days. As it is with any aspect of life but particularly with shopping…

  1. the images work very well together to tell a story and you are an amazing story-teller…
    and each of them is a keeper too!! love the way you captured the first one, just before she puts the book away in her bag… great timing!!
    I’m looking forward to every new post from you!!

  2. And a new COLOURED banner! Gosh. πŸ™‚
    Love the old girl in the QVB who’s just checked out her new book from the ABC Shop and is wondering if she did right … Feel more like the lower one, quite often.

  3. πŸ˜€ taking a nap does not seem like a bad day ;). Funnily enough, for no apparent reason I had that same passage from Dickens’ rolling in my head today πŸ˜€ Brilliant takes, Draco!

  4. I could never have a bad day shopping coz women LOVE shopping. The sleeping BAD day shopper is definitely a man, probably waiting for his wife. Ha ha! Happy Valentine’s Day (Belated?) oh yes….Best wishes!

    Love the quote … thank you for refreshing my memory. You’ve captured the good and the bad days of shopping perfectly! Coffee and a book VS waiting and waiting and waiting!
