Hi fallen, actually it was me who chose the `colour` assignment. :? Hopefully you will be able to come up with something else just as colourfall as autumn leaves. :)

Thanks for the choice Naniani, it was fun looking at ideas. I was struck by the extremely garish displays in a large hardware chain

And those of us who are just emerging from the depths of a grey wet southern hemisphere winter would not have thanked you for a bunch of colourful Northern Autum images
:D

Hi Sonnyboy, once you have submitted a photo in the assignment im afraid the rules are that you cannot change and resubmit another one, unless of course you had submitted one that was not taken in the month of the assignment.

After weeks of salads to reach my goal, you have posted a photo that looks so delicious that I can hardly contain myself! :oops:

DPParis: A security guard in a sweetshop? Are there gangs of masked candysnatchers roaming the streets of Paris? What a sad world we live in :-)
Love the picture, though

LOL, it is not a sweet shop, it is a very posh food shop. They have food from around the world, which I find kinda strange in France as they seem to like their own stuff a lot more. I think the reason it exists today is because it is in the &th district of Paris which is full of expats, which to me makes it strange that they have a no-photos rule, as expats are long-term tourists (like me) who want to take photos to send back home.

The history of the place is that it is the second oldest department store to be opened in the world. I like the food but think it is way too expensive (for the English, you are looking at a couple of quid for a tin of baked beans!).

Ah. That's a different story. I suppose Harrods would chase you out too. For my foray into the hardware store (see the montage further up the thread) I took the precaution of telling the store manager what a great sense of retailing display she had, and could I please take images for non-commercial purposes. She was pleased to allow me to wander through the store as I liked during a designated off-peak period. I also sent her a print of the montage (which is way more colourful than my actual entry). Always helps to stay on side if you want a favour :-)

Brian, a nice story. When i saw the montage of all the pics together i did wonder how you managed to take not just one but loads of them. I also wondered if they were your relatives or family. The store manager was i imagine pleased with your picture :lol: She could do a poster size in the window letting the customers see what is in store. Its a great montage!
Last year i went into a dept store, and i took pictures as i was riding up the escalator of mannequins looking over a balcony, as i got to the top of the escalators and stepped off them, i was asked to leave straight away (i had already got a shot by then) and immediately came back down the other escalators and tried to get a shot on the way back. :roll:
@ DP i also wondered if it was a quick and sneaky shot.
If i walk into a shop with my camera, even if i am not going to take pics, i am always aware of eyes following me, waiting for they chance for them to bar me.

The best time to post your photo for the assignment is on the last day.
