Just outside the entrance to a small shop in central Phoenix.

I like the calmness and balance of the picture very much. I know from experience that it's not an easy kind of shot to accomplish.

Nice composition. It is no wonder that the chairs are empty. Even with the umbrella providing shade, with the current high temperatures everyone would prefer to eat inside.

This works!
I would have got up close and did just umbrella and bricks. Think about it?

Judy said...

The color of the bricks and the umbrella compliment each other. I like that the bike is green too.

Magpie said...

This is a great shot. I love the green against the bricks and then the vintage bike as well. It's way too hot to sit outside right now though. Might have to go back and enjoy this place when the weather cools down.

I sure the bike stopped because it recognize itself in the table set! :-)

Everything is green, the umbrella, the chairs and even the bicycle, what a coincidence!
Beautiful composition, Sharon!

RedPat said...

The bike adds that certain ambience!

This tells me you've become an accomplished photographer - it's perfectly composed, filled with interest, fantastic colors, and sharp as a tack!

This is the kind of shot I try to emulate and so often fail. You got it right!

In my family, this is what we call Susie Green. Medium moss or sage green with a touch of gray.

Nice Spring color.

It's a lovely green indeed and the contrast to the brick wall is great.
