Once there were Shoe Repairers and Shoe Makers in the high street. You could have a brand new custom made pair of shoes made to your liking. Now the Shoe Makers are gone (as far as I am aware) and the number of cobblers is decreasing fast. This guy runs this shop with a friend of his, both deaf-mutes. That probably explains why they are so busy. They are very lovely and similing all the time and the quality of their work cannot be bad so it cannot just be all sypmapthy.

What a pleasant looking man. I'm pleased that he and his friend are kept busy and have a thriving business mending shoes. Were you in his shop to have your own shoes mended?
I like the chaos in this shop - it could be from 100 years ago if it weren't for the television sets and the plastic bags. And the interesting things on the back wall - the emblem of Albania as well as a silhouette of a lady!
A well seen and well taken photograph with excellent colours, lighting and exposure. Lots and lots of detail and things to look at and examine too.
