I love how the color is so worn from the tables and chairs.
Those chairs remind me of my first car.. the previous owner painted the interior door panels red and the paint began to wear off....
I know this is in plein air. But definitely cafeteria, PB & J, shattered thermos, PS 6 in my mind.
Great scene and terrific color combos. So is it a sign of the times that no one is sitting there, or is it just not the right time of day to take a break and grab a snack?
Great photo, great blog, very interesting life in NYC.
feng shui this.
I love the color combination and the lines in this shot. Good job.
Glad you didn't desaturate to b&w because the colors here are great, down to the hue of the fence that separates the tables and chairs from the sidewalk. Great!
Shabby chic on NY streets. Neat.
I love the linesand the beat up paint
For some reason this takes me back to elementary school and the smell of green beans from the tiny cafeteria that made our lunches. The benches and tables were that same red...red that had painted over the most God-awful green color in existence. Usually it's smell that brings these kind of memories crashing back, but this photo makes me crave graham crackers, fruit punch and a nap! Love the colors! So vivid.
That looks like well-used furniture. :)
Chairs and photo is fantastic; reminds me also of elementary school and the cafeteria.
...I for one love the juxtaposition from the vibrant empty chairs, the green fence and the people passing by. It's almost as if there are two different worlds being separated by a fence and the empty vibrant, colorful chairs are beckoning the passersby to "jump the fence" and sit awhile in their world...no?...Blessings... :o)
Love that crusty red table and chair. Nice composition, Daryl.
is there a fee for sitting at the tables in ny? in rome and/or paris you pay extra.so like this capture ms. d.re: property searchlooked a two very different places and i sort of was drawn to the second one; however, the young lady was asking too much. i liked it because it was manageable for us and not to far from the lake landing, a good thing and, 6 miles off the interstate. need to look more i do think. perhaps going to the other side of the lake and looking in the west virginia side of the world. property taxes less and perhaps the price of property as well.thanks for asking.have a wonderful day.hugs to you
But how's the food?
I can identify with these. Chipped, worn, tired and old... but still serviceable. Great shot!
Very well composed, Daryl. This place must have been around for some time...I'm not sure I'd want to eat right there as it appears people are walking along the fence. They could easily reach over, grab your food and run.If the food was any good, of course!Have a fun day. Don't say a word!
Love the colors... The red with the pale green makes for a very interesting photo!
What a great shot Daryl. You're reminding me of David more and more.
I think this is one of your best shots! it's got everything!
Nice perspective. Love the colors. Good job.
Wonderful photo. Great idea, color and angle.Thanks for the visit,Troy and Marthaps: yes
I love how they're all beat up. Cool.
They aren't beautiful but it's a very eye catching shot.
I LOVE the color combo of turquoise/ aqua/ celadon (whatever the eff it is) and the red/ orange. In fact, it's in my house! So THAT - I would love a print of!!! It would match my house!!! Woohoo! (Isn't it sad how excited I get over little things? But it's beautiful. :)
Love the color contrast, and those old, green doors/windows. Very cool. But how did you manage to find the tables empty?
Do they ever put little umbrellas up over those cute tables?? Adorable!(Insert smart photographer jargon here.)
What a fun place to eat : ) I love your pictures. A ton.
Ah! this post SCREAMS: "Lower East Side" circa 60's - 70's. Can you smell the eastern european cooking? I can!Aloha Daryl DivaComfort Spiral
Great shot. Very appealing colorful seating. Looks well used too!
I love the red and I think a plate of black and whites sitting on that table would be wonderful:) Thanks for commenting on my pirate photo today. Joyce
Very eyecatching.BTW I had a vivid dream about you last night, I was visiting NY and we were just having a ball!
Those chairs a wonderful. I love how worn they are.
Another very cool shot!
I got a glimpse of this stunner in my Followers preview the other day. I knew I had to get by to see those red chairs and tables melting back into gold. You know how I love weathered surfaces.
I adore this picture! I really do. This one should be framed.
Oh, I like this! I think I see where that is. I recognize the façade, just with its color. Never tried the place. Did you?
I love this photo.. it's perfect!
