Many people like photos that raise questions for the viewer, and for me this accomplishes that. I look at this and wonder how the store hasn't accidentally burned to the ground. But everyone's entitled to their own interpretation.
I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.
This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
