Harrods (The Good Old Days)


Harrods. Probably one of most famous shop in the world? To me Harrods is anyway. Maybe Macys and Hamleys are up there with it but Harrods has the element of style, Harrods oozes class and the wow factor.
When I was a child I used to visit my cousins in London and always looked forward to a trip to Harrods, watching with awe the magician and playing amongst the many, many toys.
In this Harrods photo I photoshopped out some cars and bits n pieces to try to make it look like Harrods from the past. I added the second photo to show what the original photo compared to the photoshopped version.

      I was thinking of doing that but I didn’t want to try to fool people/pretend that it’s an original old photograph of Harrods. I mainly edit using Picasa 3, only use Photoshop on rare occasions. My thoughts are that if I used Photoshop for all editing I’d end up manipulating/processing the photo too much and they’d end up something different than the original (and I’d spend too long working on the photos…). Thanks for the comment.
