Fons,

  the first one play a little trick on me. At the beginning I couldn´t figure out what I was looking at and then it came to focus -sic- and let me wondering why I didn´t see it right away the first time...

   The almost pure symmetrical composition took part in the trick, I guess. Focus, light direction, forcing the view through all of that and then some.

   Thanks for the visual game!

Manual focus has its advantages :)

A sad story behind this image, I have been making motoring holidays to the Luzern area of Switzerland since 2001, the first year I discovered ' Cafe Rex  ' from the outside it looked like a regular city centre cafe but stepping inside was like being taken back to the Parisian/art deco era, the food was simple but freshly cooked, the decor was something I had only seen in books. Originally two ladies ran the cafe until the present owner took over. He is now 65 and retirement is his future, he told me that the hard work ruing the cafe was the reason for closing but reading between the lines I got the impression that there could have been some landlord pressure involved.

This is also for Olivier. This was taken in Singapore two years ago. You can not imagine the heat in this street with all the machines working at once. All the restaurants were facing in opposite directions, cool and nice, leaving this back street for workers and air machines.

this seems to have become a "theme" thread. Particularly like Jack's image. The chickens waiting on the bench is priceless.

Here is one of the "sky lounge" that may remind us of the hours of sitting and waiting between flights.
