Sad Café

Another café shot and, as usual, hand-held and available light. I used a high sensitivity (6400 ASA) on the digital camera, which always has a warm look. But it looked so sad, the empty café with only a few customers. I was reminded of the many café paintings which always appear a bit desolate. The cafe is a kind of temporary container - a room that offers temporary respite and limited safety. The image is kind of fuzzy warm, kind of dreamy. So the Eagles sing:
Some of their dreams came true
Some just passed away
And some of them stayed behind
Inside the sad café
