The simple presentation transforms it into art. It hangs at the Drowsy Poet Coffee Shop in downtown Foley, Alabama. A fine place for coffee, dessert and friendly conversation.
Gallery Night, Downtown Pensacola, FL
Every third Friday of the month, Pensacola, Florida hosts Gallery Night. Downtown streets are closed to vehicular traffic at 5 p.m. when residents and visitors are invited for free events, such as an art fair, and live music on the streets. Many restaurants offer sidewalk cafe’s in the shade of Live Oak and Sycamore trees.
I went to see the 26th annual Power of Photography show (a spectacular photography exhibit) and was pleasantly surprised to see all the activity going on in town. Vendors along Government Street offer for sale very nice arts & crafts, there is free music everywhere, and many businesses offer special prices on drinks. The official party ends at 9 p.m., but most bars and restaurants stay open much later in the evening.
The photo was taken outside Carmen’s restaurant on South Palafox Street shortly after the festivities began. I rendered it in brown tones because it just felt like an old-time community event.

Incongruence exemplified. I’m only guessing this is a Masonic Lodge because of the icon above the door, but every other Lodge I remember seeing was an imposing edifice displaying beautiful architecture in a scenic urban setting.
