city daily photo theme day - cafe chairs



at 
city daily photo 
announced
 this month's, march's, theme 
saying

Let's see if each of us, 
whether we live in a village,
 a town, 
or a city,
 can give 
Paris 
a run for its money 
as the
 'cafe chair'
 capital of the world!

well 
new york city
 is no slouch 
when it comes to outdoor cafes
 or 
their seating

 i could have dug back 
into my archives
 for a spring or summer photo of outdoor dining
 likely
 i would have
 but
 this past weekend
 i went to my favorite coffee shop
 irving farms
 on west 79 street
 it was raining 
no one
 was sitting
 on the pretty green chairs
 sipping
 smoking
 keeping their dog company while their partner queues up for coffee inside 

i stopped
 i went
 AHA
 pulled out the camera
 snapped

 in addition
 to the theme
 of 
cafe chairs
 here's some new york ambiance
 a little wet flagstone
  the color green
 a color
 that always
 says
 march 
to me

to see how other participants
 in city daily photo
 stood up (or did they sit down?) to julie's challenge

  9. I believe I did a whole post on this as they were selling them at last year's Architectural Digest Home Show. They were fabulous and in my own town, I do not see them as much, but NYC has so many and they are Wonderful! Have a great weekend!!

  12. There are a few cafes here in Oregon but it rains too much for outside seating to be practical, except maybe for a few months in the summer.

  13. Ah yes, Paris. I love that city. What a perfect morning you had for taking a photo of NYC's cafe chairs. The rain adds a sparkly clean touch to the pretty green.

  22. Our favorite breakfast coffee spot we found near the hotel in San Francisco had a little parklet in front with these same cafe chairs. Too bad it was too cold to sit out there:)
