Sidewalk Seating and Chair Shadows

in shadowphoto •  9 months ago  (edited)

There is something about sitting outside in warm weather, greeting people, and having a cup of coffee or a meal.

Although it may be an issue for some cities, sidewalk seating for restaurants has definitely encouraged more downtown activity in our little town.


I think that half of the restaurants and cafes in my town have outdoor seating.


I took a couple of photos of outdoor chairs along our Main Street sidewalk.

These oversize iron wire mesh chairs make them optimal seats for a relaxing outdoor seating during warm days.


These outdoor chairs and tables also cast sharp shadows that show every mesh, which I thought would be an appropriate entry for @melinda010100's Shadowphoto Contest Round 89- Chair Shadows.

I particularly love the crisp patterns created by the overlapping shadows of the chair and table.



Several months ago, I traveled to Venezia, Italy.

Just look at how extensive outdoor seating is at Piazza di San Marco, which extended to almost half the plaza!

I have yet to find a coffee house that roll out on the sidewalk those Electric Recliners with the automatic back massage features.
"A fleece blanket and stuffy to go with the Mocha please. And how much for the foot massage?" ☕🧸🦶

Oooh💕... I love Mocha during cold weathers, and you sure look comfy in your yet another beautiful moji-you🥰, sis @kerrislravehill. Thank you so much, I love it and always look forward to the next one😍!!! At one airport in one of my trips, a cafe offered outside seating exactly as you have described it... they offered a choice of recliners for foot massages, and special chairs for back massages! So cool 😎😎😎! Have a terrific Friday, my sweetest si, take care an a ton of hugs and kisses 🤗😍😘🌺🤙

WOW 🥰🥰🥰

I can glean so much information from you with a single look!
I see you are using the Partiko Application, do you like it? I am
looking for one to use so I do not have to upload photos to a
'cloud' service or connect a cable that I do not have 😂🤣😻🤣

PS: Note 10+ is actually a phone/tablet they call it a PHABLET 🤩🤣🤣

I do love the look of places with outdor seating and often will use them myself on a nice day, but only in smaller cities, the idea of sitting outside at some of the place sin NYC with so much foot traffic walking by just does not appeal to me

Have a great day and good weekend

Thanks for the TRDO, @tattoodjay! I appreciate it. I recall that in one city here California, outside seating has become an issue, not because they were in the way of people walking the sidewalks, but the fact that the sidewalks are public property. Others in the community (and I suspect that those who started the petition to ban outside seating were from other food establishments located outside of the prime spots of heavy foot traffic) complained that restaurants are receiving gifts of public funds for the use of the sidewalks to generate income. It is a political issue for some cities.
Have a great Friday, my friend, and take care.

yes indeed often so many things break down to politics jealousy or greed these days sadly

Indeed... it can be sad at times... especially here in California, there is always opposing opinions on everything and anything!!! But it leads us to appreciate our freedoms in America!

This Young Lady is Wonderful She Puts Her Entire Heart into all things Beautiful.

Needless to say I am Smitten Ms. Saver., Love the Shadows you Shared.......@silversaver888

I am glad that my articles have a positive effect on you and others 🌺. I appreciate your compliment, @stokjockey😍! It is a simple pleasure to go out for coffee & pastry or sparkling water & a fruit compote and quite enjoyable to eat and drink outside the confines of the cafe or restaurant. Have a wonderful Friday, and Take care. 😍🌺

Fantastic chair shadow photo! I love to sit outdoors at a cafe on a day when the weather is perfect. Europe does outdoor seating the best. And California, too!

I am glad that you liked the chair shadow photo, @melinda010100! Do you know that I go around now hunting for shadows, hehehe😍😍😍
Who knows if one of these days we will be enjoying coffee in one of the outdoor seatings here in California, my friend! Have a great weekend and Take care. 😍🌺

Love outdoor cafe shops just seems more natural and congrats on your win in the shadow contest 👍

Thanks, @hangin😍 ! Vehicle emissions, especially here in California, are within safe limits, and it makes it safer to be eating outdoors even in busy sidewalks. I liked your driftwood chair! I've seen them here, but more so in Asia!
Have a fantastic weekend and take care, my friend 🌺!

Sorry, the tip is higher than your deposit.
You can check your deposit by sending 0.001 SBD to @tipu with memo: status
(the minimal tip is 0.1 SBD/STEEM)

That is good to hear that they have some control over vehicle emissions we have out door cafes and vendors everywhere here in Thailand but no control over emissions unfortunately but we just get use to it because the atmosphere is still great 👍

And yep those driftwood chairs are very popular in the Asia countries and thanks for the tip 😺

Ahhh al fresco! 😍 Your town is doing it right.

And Venice.... 💗💗💗

My husband and I have been talking about autumn in Italy for the past 3 years. Maybe 2020 will be the year. He has never been. Time to change this.

Happy Friday! 💕

2020 will be a great travel year for both of us! Sometimes plans work out and at times they don't, but you and I know that it is always better to plan travel at least 6 months ahead. But don't you wish we can just up and go anytime? Some people are able to do that. I can't. Work is always in the way, hehehe.
Italy in autumn will be wonderful!!! Have a fantastic weekend my dear @dfinney, take care and lots of hugs and 🤗😍🌺
