This was shot at a local ’local’s club’. (Does that make sense?) It is an old-fashioned place where older men go to play ‘bocci’. It is not a high end place but it has charm and character. This window would be wide open in Summer and the chairs would not be in storage as they were when I captured this. I took this shot becasue I was captivated by the colours and the simplicity.

    Stunning lighting and composition. Love the colour tones…almost a pastel feel to them…the top red chair that is a little askew gives it a nice quirky feel…

  • Hello Mark.. thanks for your nice thoughts on this composition!!!

    I’ve had many a Cisk larger :)
    Nice capture, Astrid.

  • Do you get Cisk in Aussie Mark or did you mean you had this in Malta?
    It’s a nice lager….
