Scenes from a Bar

Scene from a bar in early evening.

I was sitting in a local bar with my friend on a late Thursday afternoon. The light was beautiful, drinks were cold, the room quiet. Our bartender pausing for a snack before the evening rush. It reminded of a great quote from one of my long time favorite books:

“I like bars just after they open in the evening. When the air inside is still cool and clean and everything is shiny. The first quiet drink of the evening in a quiet bar – that’s wonderful.”

– Raymond Chandler The Long Goodbye

    Beautiful shot. I've been in that bar many times but I hardly recognize it.
