Passion for Lines, Patterns and Reflections

Chisinau, 2011

This image of the exterior of a café called Passion in the Moldovan capital  of Chisinau is linked with Weekend in Black and White and Weekend Reflections. It's more interesting viewed twice enlarged.

It is indeed fantastic enlarged!! And what a treasure chest of reflections for the day! Terrific capture as always, Francisca! Hope you have a beautiful weekend with lots of shadows and reflections because if there are lots of those, there is lots of sun and that makes for a wonderful weekend in itself!

Very different and with a bit of old fashioned charm.

I’m so glad I enlarged the photo twice, because if I had not I would have missed out on a lot. I love linear photography so this is rig up my alley. The reflections in the glass up above the entryway are superb. Great work.

Very interesting shot - nice patterns and lines.

You asked me about the melting of ice in februare - and you are right: It is very early. But in Oslo it can melt some days - and then the snowing sets in together with ice. SO - it is not over yet! :)

Thanks for your nice visit!

I imagine the patterns either gold or white. Was color was it?

You allowed to be passionate inside?

I embiggened this photo twice.
It is very nice.
I'd do it thrice,
But there's a price ...
To pay.

It wouldn't fit on my screen.

Now, before you scream, my dear Bucharette, thanks for your comment. And I'm so glad that you're swimming and not drowning! It would seem if you can stay afloat you're eventually going to make the far shore in good shape.

Finally, I must also say that I could maybe, perhaps, be quite passionate about the Passion.

Do you have this photo in color?

Francisca, so exhilarating a photo! How was this pattern done? painted? on what? tiles? Beautiful, no matter how.

I'm impressed. It's so hard to get what we see with the eye to register accurately onto film.
