pretty in pink
shot handheld in south park slope, brooklyn. d40 12mm f4.
this pink cruiser was parked outside the tiny 'has beans' cafe on fifth avenue, just south of 17th street. has beans serves great coffee, not only by the cup - you can purchase a wide variety of beans there whole or ground! (and pretty reasonably, too!)
this whole stretch has changed so much in the past couple of years, it's unreal. an old photography shop has turned into a new wine store (same owner, new gig). a new organic food market has come in, owned by a lovely indian family. it's called 'balance' and she now home-cooks indian entrees you can take home for dinner. practically the only indian food in the hood.
eagle provisions remains the stalwart of this block, but across the street, it's party central with the new ellis bar, another rotating bar space (should be called 'south' in the fall, formerly 'vin rouge'), and a sushi joint.
ah, rapid gentrification.
