I like the way that some small businesses try and make themselves more visible on big city main thoroughfares, to catch the eye of the passing public and to entice them to stop.
This shop on the Hague’s longest street, The Laan van Meerdervoort, certainly caught my eye as I passed by in the car.
Later, on one of my walks I made sure I went past there so that I could grab some photos.
Rather poetically this Florist shop is located in the “Bloemenbuurt” which literally means the “Flower neighbourhood”, (where all the streets are named after flowers) and is on the corner of the Ribesstraat and Laan van Meerdervoort, almost opposite the Azaleaplein.
I love their sense of humour and style… and they certainly caught both my eye and my camera lens, …wonderful!
I also like the fact they have use not only the shop window but also pavement to display their wares.
