I’ve come to the conclusion that Street Café owners are optimists by nature. Whatever the weather or season their street furniture is set up awaiting custom. And whatever the weather or the season, there will be one or two outcasts (due to the UK’s smoking regulations) forced to have their coffee/tea/whatever outdoors because their beverage cannot be de-coupled from a habitual cigarette.
Today’s image is of a street café in a neighbouring town. Custom was absent: it was a cold day and no-one in sight. Shot with my 11-16mm Tokina, the background was a bit cluttered toward the corners and distracting, so I eradicated it to allow the tables and chairs to have no conflicting points of interest.
