I love old barber shops, but I don't think we have any that old. Beautiful photos, JM!

There is a place similar to this very near my house and I've wanted to snap a photo like this for a long time. Good one!

Délicieusement rétro, avec un traitement noir et blanc très approprié !

As barbearias antigas são um charme.

Fantastic! Is this your barber?

Babzy said...

Excellent in B&W !

Emille said...

Perfect scene for a black and white! Can imagine this barbershop is one one of those shops that one will expect to be there "forever."

Andrew said...

Wonderful images... and it's wonderful to hear it's had such a long history.

Photo Cache said...

nicely done in b/w. i don't see much of this anymore. all are unisex salons nowadays.

VP said...

Unusual and elegant. These photos look really like original B&W. We see too many dull color photographs badly washed out in B&W, in search of an improbable personality they will never get. Bravo!

Honest Abe said...

Nice post and history.

Susan said...

Wonderfully seen and captured. I love the combination of text and image. Black and white the perfect feel for this.

Kay said...

Gorgeous shots! They are both wonderful, and so nice in black and white! There is something about the mood you've captured that is very timeless, like the shop itself. I just love them. Bravo!

Catherine said...

These old barber shops are so iconic - great shot

Shaun_ShutterBug said...

Wicked images JM, i really like the old world feel of these. you have captured a great and iconic image.

Randy said...

What a great looking place.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I like it JM, definitely has the 'traditional' feel to it, shown beautifully in B&W.

Sérgio Pontes said...

Tem piada que hoje fui cortar o cabelo e hoje venho aqui encontrar uma Barbearia =)

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

I like your second photo very much.

Regards and best wishes

Gunn said...

Great documentary, and a place with history and atmosphere.
I like it in b/w.

Joan Elizabeth said...

I like the B&W, brings out the glamorous yesteryear feel.

NixBlog said...

Very nice shots. Love the B&W in these.

Virginia said...

BW was the perfect choice for these JM. I especially like the top one. Very nice.

WONDERFUL !!!
I've often dreamed of taking pictures of the inside the old barber shop in my street, I've never dared. Perhaps it's a good idea to wait till it's dark...

Deborah Schoen @ Necessary Nergies said...

Fabulous composition! The B&W represents the dated barber shop perfectly, and beautifully sets the mood of the photograph.
