A visit to "Penney Lane"...a coffee house in the old section of Evansville.

The coffee house is surrounded by 18th century "old money" homes on the banks of the Ohio river. I sat at the table enjoying an espresso and taking pictures to my heart's content!

The coffee house is very inviting not just to drink a coffee but to stay a while. Coffee houses are my favorite places to unwind. They inspire conversation...often between strangers who otherwise may just pass each other on the street without even as much as a nod. This particular venue has a great selection of books to browse while there.

The chair was such a bright yellow that the sunlight reflected off it and colored the entire corner in a pale yellow. A happy yellow...it left me with a great attitude to start the weekend. I will be posting more photos of the coffee house in the future.

What I find so impressive about your pictures is the lighting and the shadows. Fantastic!

Lovely picture. I would have felt more cheerful in this setting too. :)

To me...shadows stir the imagination...what is in the shadows...that is where the viewer can add their interpretations.

Bright colors as well ignite our senses. At least they do mine! I have another image to post and bright colors are the essence of the image. I will post it next week.

Nice. I could feel the warmth of the sun as I "sat" in that chair.
I love those kind of "chance" meetings with others, too.
Thank you for sharing,
C :^)

A chance meeting in a coffee house is much better than a chance meeting bumper to bumper in a parking lot...if you know what I mean!

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon! It's nice to have a warm, comforting place to sit and reflect. This would be a favorite sanctuary of mine. Dan, as always, your photography is awesome!!
