Man having lunch over a book and coffee


In this photograph of a business man having a lonely lunch on a sidewalk, reading his book and sipping his coffee I have framed the scene in such a way to ensure the outdoor heaters are included. Why? Because this was a very nice, warm day. Temperature was reaching 20C and there was absolutely no need to have these heaters on.

There were quite a few lunch places doing exactly the same – burning a lot of fuel for no apparent benefit. One shop had the heater running in the entrance, which to me looked outright dangerous as every person had coming in or going out had to pass this heater in the doorway. What were they thinking?
