Bags of pink...........

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 20 June 2013 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

.......and bags of coincidence in this street scene shot in Sunderland's Fawcett Street. This is probably the most popular old fashioned sweet shop in the city and it was pure luck that this girl with the colour matched stroller should pass by as I was framing the shot. Pink bags inside and pink bags outside!
The shop displays its loyalty to the city and its football team with its red and white stripes on the exterior, but Alabama?? Well, I guess it is a "sweet" home"
