Shopping Arcade, Mukonoso

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 25 January 2009 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

I don't know whether this arcade was just closed up for the day, or was closed down completely. There were one or two stalls that were open.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Great perspective shot Daryl. Lighting and tones are fabulous!

I like the square frame, the tight crop and the way the arcade leads out to bright light beyond.

Really interesting to see this Daryl, very different to Chester. They look more like market stalls.

I'd love to see a 'before/after' pairing of this place . . an 'open/closed' ! Must be unrecognizable when busily open.

@Ronnie 2¢: I wonder if it's ever busy any more though...

I guess the world wide recession has hit this area pretty hard. Great shot.

@Steve Rice: Cheers Steve. I think this place has been like this for a while...

Paula Camps from Mahón (Menorca), Spain

Quite an arresting shot - reminds me of the arcade under the Hankyu line in Sannomiya before the earthquake.

If you're claustrophobic, don't enter.

26 Jan 2009 10:48pm

@Twelvebit: Definitely! Although, you could see light at both ends.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Well noticed! To me this signals one thing only: the city is sick!....But your capture is excellent!

@Japanalia: Thank you Gabriela. I wonder how long this area has been like this?

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

I don't know at what time you went there but some of those arcades close very early...

@akarui: Yes, this was around 4pm I guess? It didn't feel derelict to me to be honest.
