This gentleman enjoyed a few beers and a cigarettes in Vulcan Lane, among the younger drinkers. Vulcan Lane is a popular alley in the city in Auckland, filled with the oldest pubs in the city dating from the mid to late 1800's. The feel reminds me of Melbourne in this laneway, or a European feel.
Title a nod to Neil Young.

Old and young enjoying a beer side by side, a good street life scene well captured and in the black and white version it comes strongly across.
The lane seems to be a pleasing place, one has to remember if ever we have the possibility to be in Auckland one day.
have a good evening

Another fine shot Justin. Didn't you feel like going over and saying hello? I notice his polished shoes and pressed pants- dressed to go out.Regards. Klaudio.

A nostalgic photo I reckon, one where the old man looks towards the young man, possibly thinking about his past, the things that were and the things that could have been. The B&W treatment works well, those French café style chairs invite it. And it also beings out the textures of the wall behind him and makes him seem almost three-dimensional. Nice work. Thanks for sharing.
Have a good evening
