This little shop in Funchal caught my eye and the cobbler popped up just as I was taking the shot. Serendipity.
Ha ha Cheeky little chappy! I can see your knobbly knees in the reflection!

... serendipity.. and a very good one. I love those candid, quick shots that show us live from so many different corners of this world of ours... This is a great shot, Grouser, full of stuff and... optimism

Why does Monty Python come to mind? I know it's a completely different setting, but wasn't there a scene with people popping out from behind bushes and then getting blown away? In any event, this is a hilarious shot. Let's hope he is as busy as his shop is!

@Jeff: I'm afraid it's the 'sole' cobblers shot
What an interesting shops with the myriad of "things" to see and enjoy. It was fortunately he popped up when he did. He obviously enjoyed your visit. Nice shot.
