This bar, photographed at night during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, has style. I like the arched ceiling, the mix of patterns, the glow of lights in the darkness, the greenery that brings the outside in, and the observing mannequin. Other details emerge if you have time to explore.
At first, the white screen seemed to dominate and distract, but after living with the picture for a while, I’ve come to accept it would be less interesting were the screen not there. It disrupts and balances.
Today’s submission for Becky’s Lines&Squares has an assortment of lines – curved, straight, diagonal, droopy, converging – there’s even a line of pianos.

What a fascinating bar, just look at all these lines. I think I would have missed the pianos 🎹 if you hadn’t said.
PS the ferns look as though they’ve been there longer than the bar!
Definitely a quirky bar. I must admit I don’t like the screen at all.
I can understand that. It took me a while to come around, but now if I block it out with my hand, it seems to make the picture less interesting.
Looks like a place I would spend some time in!
It was memorable, even in a city with plenty of watering holes to choose from. 🙂
There’s something about that big white screen which weirdly goes with the black and white bar and with what seems to be pillows in the far corner. Maybe it’s their similar starkness in the midst of more subtle colors and contours. Maybe they should uncover the piano keys and bring in those black and white lines. Maybe I should stop looking…
That’s what I see. There seems to be a split between white light and rosy light, each claiming approximately half the territory, but not in a rigid way, so the eye is encouraged to move around.
A splendid shot. I like the spiralling effect of the whole
Good point – the curve of the bar and perspective acting on the arch shape create something of a down-the-rabbit-hole effect.
Looks mysterious and inviting. For some reason, the white screen didn’t bother me at all.
As a cinema goer, it might act as placeholder for a possibility.
