An assorted group of people enjoy a drink sat oustide the Café Castignolles in Mirepoix.
Mirepoix is a town and commune in the Ariège department in southwestern France. It lies in the Hers valley between Carcassonne and Pamiers.
Its inhabitants, who are called Mirapiciens, numbered 3123 in 2008.
The centre of Mirepoix is built around the place de Couverts, a pleasant place to wander on a sunny afternoon and stop for a quiet drink. It has a number of interesting old buildings to attract the attention of the photographer. One of the main attractions is the 14th century Maison des Consuls. The overhanging arcades of this building have exposed beams and on these there are approximately 150 individually carved wooden heads in various states of preservation.
Just off the centre is located the cathedral of St-Maurice, built in the Gothic style, and notable for its particularly wide nave.

Un bon cliché de ce lieu convivial et sympathique où il doit faire bon s'arrêter un moment sous les arcades. C'est ton verre de bière qui t'attend sur a 1ère table ?

A well lighted bar inside, with a painting of the Materhorn on the wall, is probably one of a few places open on evenings in the small town.
Local and tourist fnd a nice cozy place to have a beer or coffee - and watch the by passer's.
A very clear view on picture, light managed superbly, and I think the ceiling was once painted better...
Fine ambiance conveyed.

Cela ressemble beaucoup à un café d'habitués où tout le monde se connait . Les chaises semblent confortables et la bière fraîche à cette heure du jour. On a envie d'y aller.

Difficulties getting online - so cutting and pasting this - BUT just want to say - "I like this shot!" Before I lose my connection yet again.

I`m quite intriqued as to where the light is coming from as the whole area appears to be bathed in a lovely light despite the tatty nature of the ceiling.
It has all the ingredients for a relaxing drink or two.
Best regards Les.

Hello Stephen - I've been sat here reading the menu and deciding what to order! The cafe looks nice and relaxed and a good place for a glass of wine and a bite to eat. A pleasant shot with very good light management and colour. Have a good evening. Warm regards Rosemary
PS. I'll have the duck!

The thing that jumps our at me in this is just how relaxed everybody in this picture looks! I am not sure what they are drinking, but I'll have one too. Very nice composition to have the light flooding from the left of the scene, making a welcome invite inside, and the texture of the roof has been caught really nicely.

un simpatico quadretto, uin angolo di borgo molto ben ripreso, ma ho la sensazione che la birra in primo piano sia la tua.
Ottima nitidezza e buona gestione della luce e dei colori.
Ciao e buona serata

This is indeed a very attractive little town, we were here for 5 days in 2001, so this picture is a very pleasant reminder of those days. This is also a very fine picture with a very pleasant inclusion of people!

a very well composed and interesting daily life picture. The scene and scenery look simple and quiet but it's amazing how many details you've included in the frame through a superb use of perspective. There's wonderful depth and sharpness and it's really intriguing to see how space and interest extend to the interior of the cafe'. I like very much the clarity with which the two differently lit areas are distinguished. A very natural impression of this picturesque place. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Nice place to sit there and enjoy the drink looking at the street life. Seems very comfortable with the cushions and people look relaxed. They have here quite big selections of salads too. very nice photo, we can feel we are there with the people.

Good colors and composition.
I like this daily life shot.
Have a nice afternoon
I have a problem, today I could not put pictures? :(

che bello, mi piacerebbe tanto sedermi su una di queste sedie e ammirare il paesaggio, sentire il peso della storia di questa città.
Una bella scena, ben fotografata.
PS non preoccuparti per le faccine, l'importante è l'apprezzamento

Beau rendu des couleurs de la terrasse de ce café restaurant.Les vêtements bleus s'accordent bien avec le jaune des lumières à l'intérieur.
Cricri (92041) 2013-10-11 5:25
J'aime comme vous avez cadrer la terrasse en diagonale, la prise des lumières de la brasserie, l'altitude des personnes dans cet endroit charmant et calme

I enjoy this type of candid photography. The cafe window has lovely warm colours and very inviting! There also some very enjoyable colours and light in the outside seating area. I like the couple chatting, the man on his own thinking and the lady clearly waiting for someone else to sit down to have the other drink. There is a lot to enjoy about this image - very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

Nice image, sharp with good details, well saturated colors and nice composition. Well done.

Ciao Stephen, nice scene, excellent perspective, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

What struck me most about this image was the fg woman obviously has a companion (the full beer glass awaiting his return), and the couple at the back are engaged in idle chit chat or perhaps some serious philosophy, but the gentleman in the middle is obviously alone and his body language and pensive facial expression conveys that his thoughts are elsewhere. Well captured to achieve this! Bon semaine!

A very nice place to drink something, and a very interesting picture to see on a Friday! Very good light management and colors! Great composition! Well done!
macjake (45556) 2013-10-18 13:45
haha...fun photo, fun times right?
I wish I can read more clearly the writings on the board to the left, just out of curiousity i suppose.
another point that interests me is the ceiling, I'd like to see more of that too, not sure what it is.
Now I wanna go and have a drink too!
thanks for this shot, as it delivers more than it looks.

Nice scene with a good lights control
Interessant lateral perspective
