    There used to be a knife sharpener around the corner when I was a little thing. Lovely candid shot.

      Could do with him to come round and sort out my knives.

      1. MrsTeePot

        I think we all could! They blunt so fast!

    Wonderful sight! You don’t see that often these days, do you? I’ve got a whole drawer full of knives that could use his attention!

    Lovely action shot. Reminds me when we used to have a man drive round the neighbourhood asking people if they wanted their knives and other tools sharpened. Don’t know where he went to. Miss that sort of community; its all big shops and multinationals now.

      Now there’s a dying trade and flash back photo.

      1. MrsTeePot

        I know, I was fascinated! 🙂

    2. MrsTeePot

      Thanks. Yea, it’s sad that this sort of trade is disappearing, such an interesting thing to watch too

    What a lovely street shot – and again I say: “can I come and live with you please”?!

      That’s great, I wish I had someone near here to sharpen my knives!

      1. MrsTeePot

        It’s something that would be pretty handy isn’t it!

    2. MrsTeePot

      Thanks hun! And I say again: yes, please!!!

    Interesting – is this sort of chap more common in France, I wonder?

    1. MrsTeePot

      I *think* it’s just a tourist thing, like he comes out for the tourist season then disappears, but don’t quote me on that!
