Upstairs at Carlo’s

Filed under: Mike — sojournerphoto @ 22:13



  1. Is Carlo’s not very popular then?!! This is like a study of 60 or more years of sociological history – the furniture, the condiments and a sort of feel of suspended time. What are the large oil paintings? I thought at first they were old minor landscapes but they seem to be without detail suggesting a more modern abstract idea. Whoever might be here has the benefit of a good view through the window.

  2. This has a very period feel about it for me, if you had said it was a seventies image, it would not arouse any suspicion.
    The lack of customers adds to the feeling of it being frozen in time.

  3. Thanks John and Rex. Downstairs is often full, but I’ve never seen anyone sitting upstairs – perhaps on busy holidays. The ‘pictures’ appear to be slate, though I don’t think the walls underneath are. I have a love of these out of time sociological pictures and always try to grab a shot when I see them. The sense of timelessness, the past and comment on the present draw a lot of themes for me. Incidentally, this is an almost untouched jpg from the camera (yes, digital!).
    The fish and chips are excellent and Carlo’s can be found in Alnwick, Northumberland.
