I never cease to be amazed at the size of the cafes in the narrow pedestrian lane in Centre Place in Melbourne. Most have only 2 tables outside, although some are double roller-door’s width and have small table & chairs inside as well. The lane itself is dark and only really well-lit when the cafes are open, or the summer sun shines directly overhead.
The image above shows exactly how wide – probably about 6 feet. The image below (which I shared a few posts ago) show how dark and gloomy it can get at dusk on an overcast day. Despite this, it is a vibrant and well-used area as the lane is a major route for office workers and shoppers heading for home. Weekends have a slightly different clientele – more bohemian and altogether more interesting for street photography. Next time I’m in the city on a Sunday, I’ll make (and share) some more images.
