Scoundrels & Gentlemen

The growing trend of the men's barbers becoming as fancy as the ladies is shown on this photo. It's quite fascinating to watch the pampering & increasingly complicated hair cuts that takes place in these expensive establishments.
They were queueing up even on a Sunday!

I think Harry would be very out of place in here!

Slightly cockeyed as I took this photo very quickly as you can imagine & so the angle didn't help! Harry was rather horrified I had even dare get my iPhone camera out!


Thank you all for your fun comments on my wonderful card for Mothers Day! I was so happy to think that I qualified for that wording!
We all like to think we are still fairly 'with it' !

Three good things:
1. Sitting out weather.
2. A potential disaster of a loo overflowing yesterday was a much better outcome than at first thought!
3. I am about to embark on my first bottle of sample gins & tonic water tonight.

It's a trend here too, Pat.
Yes, sitting out weather! Did a lot of work in the garden.

I haven't noticed any of these around here - yet!

@julzmaioro no you're right although Brian had his cut in rather a posh barbers in Ponsonby Central, he loved it so you never know! I think farmer George & retired farmer Harry are a bit old though!

@pennystot yes indeed, I didn't see the price list! They were all youngish chaos who don't mind sounding that sort of money!

@dide Roll on sitting out weather!

@jesperani yes it was like a top ladies salon! How vain these men are these days about their hair!
posted March 27th, 2017  
Wonderful seeing and I like the lighting and composition a lot. At least they still use bikes!

@brennieb I am scoring the gins! Marks out of ten but only had the first one tonight so no comparison yet. I could have stood there for ages watching but it looked a big nosy!

@beryl Ha ha yes very pricy Beryl but money no object in the pursuit of perfection!

@jgpittenger Ha ha yes they probably can't afford a car although we did see some very fancy cars all being driven by the young! Oh dear I am sounding very old!
