Excellent image Marian ! I like the strong contrast here - a very black and white restaurant ?

Actually not, I made the conversion because it had better contrast. The chairs are made of a rich dark red wood.
I was the one waiting for a meeting and since I cannot take a picture of MY wait, I represented it with this empty table.
The real beauty of the coffee shop is that column. The squares were placed by hand one by one, which explains the imperfections that I found fascinating.
Thanks for asking Herman.
I am sending a kiss from my beloved valley.

A cleverly framed image which had me looking hard to figure out what was there.
Not good for my brain at breakfast time!

Thank you so much for your kind comments.
I was about to have an important meeting and was torturing myself with awful thoughts.
Then I noticed the column and it was is if a veil had been removed from before my eyes.
Peace came about as soon as I pulled out the camera from my purse.
Marian
PS: The meeting was a success.

So stylish, like the set of an old film. Just waiting for Audrey Hepburn to appear.

It is a beautiful coffee shop, I will take more pictures! Smile

You would love it F.G.! It has very tall ceilings and is all glass to the outside. It is at the base of a large tower in front of Plaza La Castellana. I cannot say "Castellana Square" because it is round, hahaha! Tongue
