Just a daily life photo from this tiny cafe in the town of Polican, near Berat. I have borrowed the "Not Only Coffee" title from an Albanian TV Channel morning show, BBC Breakfast kind of programme!
Having her coffee was definitely not the only reason for the old lady's visit, having a chat and getting updated on the "local news!" is just as important!
The photo is a bit soft due to me not being prepared for the scene but I thought it would make a resonable Daily Life post.

Yes, I agree: this is a fine "Daily Life" picture and you have caught these two ladies in the middle of a nicely animated conversation. I wonder what the gossip was? Is someone having a baby or is someone in hospital or has someone run away with a girl from the next town? Probably not as scandalous as that because they both look happy. Did they know you were taking a picture?
Again, a testament to that wonderful camera and its fabulous low light capabilities. No real sign of grain or noise here and a very natural and interesting photograph. I love these "impromptu" shots you take of people in their own working environment.

This is a very nice photo because of the friendly interaction between the women. I also find it quite interesting because this little café doesn't yet seem to have been hit by the modern city trends as far as interior decoration goes. Regarding the softness a very simple PP could have made it a lot clearer and brighter.
