I posted this series on the Brick lane Beigel Bakery some time ago. I was shocked to learn today that the owner and her daughter were stabbed to death a few days ago at their home in North London. The son is due to appear at court charged with their murder. I have had their Beigels for years (from the time I was a young cop in the 70's) The place and the people were legend. What a terrible shame!

Terrific series. The world needs more all night bakeries and delis. Albuquerque, a city that only sleeps, could use one -- though by now I'm too old to enjoy them. If I'm awake at 1 AM, it's in bed with a book -- not, alas!, a whore.

I'm grouchy today. Photos great as always Pete but have to say I hate the terms whore or tart. I find them very offensive whatever context they are used. I appreciate you aren't meaning to offend though. And the photos ARE great! Thanks for sharing.

I agree. I don't, for one moment, think that Petach intended to offend, but these terms really aren't appropriate.

I also agree with your other point - they ARE great photos.

Thank you all for your comments. Much appreciated. When I wrote the forward I had Humphrey Bogarts voice in my head saying the words I was typing. I was setting a scene of gritty real life. An uncompromising real life of winners and losers. I am sorry if some are offended by my use of the words. I have no intention of being offensive. I have removed the forward, will let the photos speak for themselves and others might like to weave a story around them.

Sorry Pete, didn't mean for you to take the whole narrative down. There's a real writer in you as you set the scene extremely well. Just remind Humphrey he's got an occasionally grouchy broad as an audience!

Honest Karen, its not a problem. I don't normally write such a lengthy forward and I usually let my photos speak for themselves. You can see the grit here. There are no airs and graces.. It ain't Starbucks, nor Costa or Cafe Nero or Subway.....and all the better for it I believe. I am pleased you like the shots.

Cheers

Pete

I've just realised that i never read the front pages of this forum. I think that will have to change.
Nice set Pete.
But another reminder to me that I just cant seem to get past my fear of shooting people.
And Pete, you excel at it. In fact It's one of your shots thats my favourite street shot ever.
Cant find it though. It's on a bus !
