Scene From a Coffeehouse

A  L  O  H  A   from  San Francisco
"Old friends.
Winter companions,
The old men
Lost in their overcoats,
Waiting for the sunset.
The sounds of the city,
Sifting through trees,
Settle like dust
On the shoulders
Of the old friends."
Paul Simon,
'Old Friends'

The men in the coffee shop look like they are enjoying each other's company... and they have for decades.

Hello Cloudia, I love the old men in the coffeeshop. Great capture. Happy February, enjoy your new week!

This is what a 'real' coffee shop was designed for oui! In most these days it's more about drink up and get out to make room for next paying customer! Wonderful image for the theme Cloudia.

What a wonderful image, reflecting a very important aspect of cafes, having a place to met friends and enjoy each others company.

Thank you for taking part in this endeavour,

The Buddhas look great. I see that each figure is different.
What a great find!

The mural is super and totally love your coffeehouse scene. Those 2 chaps are enjoying their game, I should think.
