Man at the Mecca Espresso Bar

 on 


In last few days we had unseasonal warm weather. Temperature in Sydney reached 24C. This is middle of Australian winter.

People are really enjoying this weather and all outdoor lunch places are full of business people taking a break from the office.

This street photograph of a man having lunch at very popular Mecca Espresso Bar was taking in very harsh midday light thus it has very dramatic contrast between his figure brightly lit by the sun and everything else which falls in the shadows.

    One of the guys at the Mecca espresso bar mentioned this photo to me. I am the (balding) man with my back to the photographer. The subject is my good friend Raymond… we have coffee here often.

    Would we be able to get a print?

  • I think you must be having our summer because here in the UK it definitely doesn’t feel like summer.

    Love this shot great light.
