The Village Square

Taken in The Village at noon last Friday, about an hour or so before Metal, Brick, and Glass. Again, with my D300 / 14 mm combo.

I hate this area. Abhor it. Full of tourists (foreign and otherwise) and trendy/chic people with whom I’ve got next to nothing in common. If it weren’t for the Apple store, or a Belgian beer pub called The Tree, I wouldn’t visit there at all. Okay, well, Blue Frog ain’t bad either, but that’s it.

The place is usually chockablock full of people. It was cool to take a photo of the square when it was relatively empty.
