Wot? No customers

By saltireblue    
An outside cafe, on a sunny, but horribly cold early Spring day. Your double skinny latte would be colder than a naked eskimo's dangly bits if you sat here.
Good for Saturday shadows, though.

Apologies for the recent spell of click 'n' run, but have been up to my proverbials at work due to a colleague who did a big drama queen production and flounced off without giving any notice, leaving us somewhat in the poo.

On the bright side, the snow has (mostly) finally disappeared and we spent last weekend pruning bushes and trees and trying to gather up all the dead leaves and other stuff lying everywhere.'s been warm enough to turn the heating off and stop burning wood in the stove! Hurrah, money saved! We went through 6m3 of logs this winter...

Now then, let's see if I can leave some pointless comments anywhere...where are those connections images...
Have a good weekend one and all.

Light, lines, shadows. I like the dark background.

Strong directional contre jour lighting allowing such dramatic shadows, but probably still too cold for any to be tempted to have their tipples out of doors.

This has been an incredibly expensive winter for heating for most of us. The snow has long gone here but yesterday we had two hailstorms - enjoy your pointless comments - I enjoy reading them!!!
They were obviously expecting a good turnout with the number of chairs set out - maybe they are for photographers looking for shadows WinkWink
No customers it might be but it has everything else, well exposed good shadows and detail,
Love the way the light falls in this strong mono image...great lines which gives an abstract quality...
Very stylish...

love the very suitable shadows... looks cold indeed
still very cold here. Must take your expression on board, it nicely translates into Dutch Smile Or is it a common Norwegian saying.
BTW my roots are self colouring. My hair has turned grey in semi automatic mode, half of it grew by itself, the rest was caused by French bureaucracy.

A marvellous mono Malc, such superb shadows. Drama queens who flounce off eh? We've seen a fair few of those on epz over the years!Tongue
