Posting this a day late, for even though I had a day off yesterday, I didn't have much time for photography or pbase.
Had a much appreciated lie-in as my husband volunteered to take our son to school. Then we decided to go to Newry
and do some shopping - nothing exciting, mainly groceries.
The exodus of shoppers heading from the towns in the Republic of Ireland across the Border to Northern Ireland is showing no signs of abating as the Euro remains strong against Sterling. It was very busy in the supermarket that we went to and there was a mile long tailback into Newry as we returned home in the afternoon.
One of Newry's main shopping centre The Quays is located beside the old Drumalane Mill which has been refurbished as a retail/office complex. I was taking a couple of shots (having discovered that I'd only my macro lens on the cameras as I had grabbed it going out the door) when a security man approached me to say I shouldn't be taking photos without getting permission. He was satisfied when I said I was only taking them for a hobby and unfortunately I wasn't on a public road so I couldn't argue with him. But why are the management shopping centres so sensitive about people taking photographs? I can understand that they mightn't want people taking candidates of customers but in this case I was outside in the car park.
