PhotoHunt: Plastic - Chairs outside Cafe Lavena, Venice



Journaling:

Lavena Cafe doesn’t open ‘til 10am. Pity I’m two hours early.

The Piazza San Marco glossy cafes don't open until 10 or even later, in the morning. So we have to get our first cappuccino a few blocks away. Then we go and sit on the plastic seats outside the cafes and people watch.

This is my latest entry.

What a delightful shot for plastic and also for waiting. You always do such a great job with the themes.

Those chairs are plastic? If I hadn't been told, would have thought they were rattan or something like that!

stan said...

those chairs r too close for comfort. But I like the cheery yellow!

napaboaniya said...

I like the color yellow, we've got these chairs around, but mostly in pale beige...yucks!

Willa said...

Such a useful material, plastic.

Randi said...

Great take on the theme - you look so relaxed and comfortable in that chair...*smile*

Carin said...

Really like those yellow plastic seats!

Carin said...

Amazing that those seats are not tied up when the cafe is closed. That's what they have to do over here for others the chairs might be stolen!! Especially such lovely ones.

The last time I was in Venice was 2003, during the awful heatwave. We used to do that thing of getting up early and being active before the heat - and, like you, finding many places shut. But it's a lovely time to wander around. Your post has whetted my appetite to return. :)

Mar said...

I always enjoy people-watching! that's a lovely place, even without coffee.
Happy hunting and happy weekend :)

I loved people-watching on my one and only trip to Venice. Ok, I confess ... I love people-watching wherever I am! Great photo hunt choice! Almost as good as mine! Tee hee!

How nice. I would need coffee long before 10:00 am, as well. Blessings!

Classy plastic design.
We had plenty of plasti cameras of the same vintage that broke down.
I have at least six cameras over forty years old that I use - not plastic though.

Great capture. It would be good for mellow yellow Monday too!

marta said...

Wow! bright yellow chairs. They would probably wake you up faster than the coffee. Nice design and nice choice. Have a great weekend.

nancyhol said...

What a beautiful photo, Leslie! You are so talented to "frame" them like that.

Gerry said...

It's just about warm enough to put some chairs out in northern Michigan. Think I'll paint one yellow!

Nice design, Leslie.
