That is what I felt when looking at Don Wiss's images of camera store fronts in Manhattan, and there's another page for Brooklyn. These store fronts look none to pleasing to me from a visual or a consumer perspective, but maybe that's just culture shock. Informative: yes. And maybe we could post some more pics of the shops we buy at - it gives things a more real feel to it. Internet is changing my perception of 'storefronts' immensely, so it's time to get the feet back into the litter, dust and dirty shopwindows of reality. Also, it makes ones contacts with dealers a little more 'real' even if we just communicate with them via the web. For instance, we've bought some stuff from Jay Tepper and I spoke to him on the phone and all my experiences have been very nice, but there's a big white void where his face should be. Same goes for MidWest Photo and some other US companies. A pity, really. Do other analog people feel the same way?
