coffee break

Matakana Farmers & Food Market...we came for breakfast and stayed for lunch.
This market is establishing a great reputation! Nice HDR processing - be good in colour too!

No masks? The HDR gives it a cool feel

Reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell. Love it in B&W.

Like the black and white, great shot!

@chancelique Thanks very much :)
@corinnec Thank you very much :)
@maggiemae A well deserved reputation - we always go when we’re “up north”
@jgpittenger No masks...we’ve done such a good job of eliminating the virus that there are no cases in the community, only in isolation (which are people returning to NZ who are required to isolate in provided hotels for 2 weeks), so masks aren’t mandated at all with the exception of when on public transport or flights. Even the anti-vaxxers and conspiracy theorists have trouble arguing their points here.

I am ever so jealous...wish our government had been so smart
December 5th, 2020  
Great texture and contrasts
December 5th, 2020  
That sounds like a good day! Nice capture too.
December 5th, 2020  
Great street shot of the coffee culture!

Ace street shot and processing
December 5th, 2020  
Great shot, and awesome processing into b&w

Super candid capture. I cannot for the life of me grasp why the sign states 'sugar free bacon'. I don't think I have ever come across sugared bacon in my sheltered existence.

Brilliant processing - i love a bit of hdr

Cool picture. Glad you're highlighting a leftie... left-handed people always notice haha.

@salza Since I decided to cut corn syrup out of my diet and started reading labels, I've been amazed by how prevalent it is. It's in everything.

I love NZ food markets! Great capture here!

@happypat Thanks very much :)
@stephomy Well...that was unintentional...hadn't even noticed ;)
@lyndamcg Thanks very much :)
@salza I think it's in the curing...we always go for free range and chemical free but yes, first time I'd seen sugar free...
@swchappell Thanks very much :)
@ricksnap Thank you kindly :)
@redy4et Thank you very much :)
@jamibann It was a good day although I was slightly larger by the end of it...
@ghost13 Thanks very much :)
@jgpittenger They can never get it right all of the time but there are some that have missed the mark by so much!

Every bit of this shot is crisp and sharp. Very nicely processed.
December 5th, 2020  
I haven’t been there for years. Looks like fun!
December 6th, 2020  
@graemestevens nicely explained about the masks.
December 6th, 2020  
@carolinesdreams Thanks very much - it was the end of a good break away!
@gamelee Thank you very much :)

Processing is really striking.
December 6th, 2020  
It's great to see a normal life! Lovely processing.
December 6th, 2020  
Cool, gritty details. The processing really adds interest to this capture. ...and I want your government. We're out of control with Covid, but still people don't give a crap about masks, hygiene and separation.
December 6th, 2020  
Great shot of a leftie, aka south paw, or whatever you call left handers down there.
December 6th, 2020  
Most excellent processing, Sir.
December 6th, 2020  
@vignouse Thank you sir :)
@blueberry1222 Freaks... ;)
@aikiuser Our government is pretty damned cool it has to be said...
@haskar Thank you very much :)
@taffy Thanks very much :)
