Alex Convenience Store



It is there somewhere! This one is probably worth the effort of clicking on the picture to see a bigger version.

See the sign that says "Alex Bar and Grille"? Well the convenience store is sort of to the left a bit and behind a car.

Perhaps I'm cheating by not showing it in all its glory, but really it's all a bit boring, our local shop, devoid of character, no cigarette advertisements (illegal here, as is displaying lots of them for sale), but the sunset gives it a bit of a lift don't you think?

non-display and advertising of tobacco is coming this way too.

Beautiful sunset and sure enough the corner shop is there when the photo is enlarged.

Not having cigarettes is good for the health so I don't think its boring that way. Yes, great and interesting sky!

Excellent shot, much easier on the eye!

Ben said...

Ok, is that the one with blue sign on? Nice sky, BTW.

The sunset is justified to use as it's so beautiful. It's still shows the shop, so well done.

Ooooo. the red sky is beautiful!

tobacco advertising is not allowed in Singapore. They even had horrible pictures on tobacco products to deter people.

Happy Theme Day!

Gorgeous evening sky as a backdrop to the market/restaurant complex. Love those colors.
Long ago in the US television and radio commercials for tobacco products were banned, but magazines and billboards continued. And shops, especially convenience shops, still carry adverts in the window, etc. Nice to see your government being responsible about it.

Wow, what a lovely sunset! I've been in that store - many times but their prices are not exactly cheap.
