I was driving into the city at lunchtime today and as I was pulling up at the traffic lights, I saw this cafe beside me. I wasn’t able to stop then so I hoped I’d remember to go home this way = I often go home a different way.
I did remember. and I was lucky enough that there were several parking spots opposite. I pulled out my camera and started looking for the best spots to take a few photos. I ended up having to walk a little way past it because the sun was shining on the white-painted front above the verandah and on the signwriting, which would have meant parts of it were over-exposed and other parts still in deep shadow.
It was a bright sunny day and I forgot to change the ISO from when I went outside to try to take some photos of the fog at about 0130 last night (this morning) but otherwise, I’m tickled pink with these photos . . . I shot them hand-held!. I cropped it after straightening (it is straight, the street is on a bit of a hill), then increased the contrast a little and lowered the brightness just a tad!
