The vending machine on the right was no longer operational.

Hi-C was taken off the market in 2019, but I'm sure this machine is much older.

It has a lot of character and includes the anachronistic payphone too! BTW remember to keep this photo handy for the next time we need an example of right-to-left horizontal Japanese writing.

@Davey I really like that picture--indoor colors/warmth (vs almost cold bluish/B&W outside), frame within a frame, the simplicity of the outside view (like sensory deprivation?), really only just straight lines--most all vertical/horizontal.

A flower shop at a local supermarket, I've walked by here dozens of times, thinking there might be a picture in the dried flowers they have hanging off to the side.

Thomas--that's great. I tried playing with some editing on it but it looks like you've got that pegged.

But how about a crop? (mostly taking off the light left side)

I love using PhotoShop. The things you can do with it are amazing. I started using it around 1991 and I still only use about 25% of what it can do.
