My book entitled, Looe in Cornwall a photographic tour, is on sale now.
You know, that is true. When I was living in Japan, I found this old barber who really knew his business. Since returning home, I've noticed how lacking in technique some barbers here are.

@Steve Rice: I know what you mean, this is my local barber who knows how to cut a gents hair. He was so pleased with this photo he has used it in his 'Ad'.
Michael - this is excellent.
Pas trop courts s'il vous plaît ! Je te souhaite un agréable dimanche. JP

A fine action shot of this barber giving someone a scissor cut! I like the detail of the image. I hope this kind of barbershop never disappears.
