Oxford Street Paddington with two minutes between shots: the upper shot at 7:27pm; the lower shot at 7:25pm.
This is primarily a retail precinct, and retail is doing it tough at the moment. People are still spending, but not on 'things' mainly on 'experiences'. This strip is heavily reliant on up-market fashion and shoe shops, with a sprinkling of household accessory outlets. On Wednesday, I will show you just how bad they are hurting.
The upper shot is dominated by the renovated 'Imperial Hotel'. The lower shot is dominated by the Paddington Inn. Both are very nicely appointed, with exceptional diners. They are in the 'experience' category, so should be smiling.
Data for the upper shot: F5.6, S/S 1/1600, ISO 1000, Focal Length 105mm
Data for the lower shot: F5.6, S/S 1/500, ISO 1000, Focal Length 50mm
