    NZ is fast becoming a alfresco, cafe latte' society! I remember when eating outside was considered a little on the weird side in this country!
    You've got a great perspective and it's revealed well with the composition of your image.
    I'm so late today

  2. Ndiginiz,
    When you mention cafe latte' in yiur comment, I immediacy recall the story of a cafe used to stand here started that culture in NZ (at least what I hard of).
    This is where "Chez Eelco Coffee House" was. The famous cafe is now close down and Iris Beer Bar is operating at very same spot.

    I wish I had taken the picture of the Cafe when it was still there.

  3. Ben I see that you are having a bit of a b&w phase with a lot of very nice photos
    I'm in the middle of a 30 day B&W challenge on the DPChallenge web site
    here is a link to my entries so far
    my entries
    and here is the thread with all the entries
    forum thread

  4. A fine street scene. Excellent black and white quality.
    Very nice work.

  5. Thanks Keith,
    I made myself assignment "B&W street photo". I took them in single day (except the first on the series) at about lunch time. The light condition with strong high noon light was quite challenging (too much contrast, and I do not want to fire the flash because of this candid look nature). But it was fun. Few more shot to post there but then I will back to normal routine and thing about next assignment. Your DPChallenge entries looks very good, Keith.

    Welcome and thanks DonWiley2.

  6. Nice stuff, great B&W tones, interesting to NZ life as I've never been there...
