Despite its notoriety for poor service and overpriced beverages, Cafe Barbieri's ambience, flourishes of art nouveau, moldings, high ceilings and antique mirrored walls, makes this spot an inspiring place to write or read or hangout with friends.
There's a haunted ghostly feel about the cafe at night. The stopped clock and abandoned piano remind me of Miss Havisham from Dicken's Great Expectations.
I tried to invoke the ghosts in this photo, to capture its spirit and freeze the moment into timeless nostalgia. My hope is that I succeeded in some small measure.
Happy Friday, everyone!
