I went to an Irish pub in Hiroshima last night to get some fish and chips, not to mention a refreshing pint of Guinness.
I’d like to say that this place is an oasis of Western culture in this provincial Japanese city, but that would only be true if you define Western culture as idiotic shouting ex-patriots.
I didn’t stay long, but quickly thought it might be fun to try a little ‘still life’ with all the nice tones from the wooden table and beer glass in front of me.
Unusually for me, I shot this in RAW and last night worked it up in Aperture 3 with Nik Software plug-ins.
Yes, I know, it’s over-sharpened, and yes, there is that distracting patch of reflection on the table to the left of the beer glass, plus I should have used an f-stop that would’ve allowed the entire glass to be in focus, but still I find it to be a striking image.
