Man at the Mecca Espresso Bar


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.

Lunch at table 13


I went today to watch another game of chess in the park. However, instead of photographing the chess players I’ve photographed a couple of men having top time during their lunch. I guess this was a perfect day for an outdoor lunch with almost summery conditions.
