COFFEE, TEA or MACAROONS – Royal Arcade, Melbourne

IMG_9899

I debated whether to erase the scratches and marks on the glass case (holding the old teacups), but then decided it added another layer of interest to the image.

The Royal Arcade has all the architectural details painted in Black, with black and white tiles on the floor in a checkerboard design.  I’ve taken many photos but never been able to capture the atmosphere of this heritage listed arcade, but you can read about it here.  Or check out some photos on Google images.  In the meantime, the bright sunlight was shining through the upper windows in the arched roof and highlighting some of the shoppers and cafe patrons.  Definitely no need to increase the contrast or definition in most of these photos.
