Casafuego Pool Room

These photos taken during a winter visit to Casafuego Mexican cafe/restaurant in Balclutha on 08 July 2019. They’d added a pool table since our previous visit. We loved the look but our photos came out rather ‘flat’ due to the light conditions. Today I had a bit of a ‘play’ with my recently downloaded photo editing program ‘Paint.NET’ and was really pleased with the results of my session.

Casafuego Pool Room, Balclutha

The first photo was taken by Nigel and the second by me. I’ve done a lot more editing than I normally would – it was a good learning experience.

  1. When I saw your photos last evening, I knew that Benjamin would be intrigued. Having just returned from our Holiday Family Brunch at a favorite restaurant close by, I shared them with him. He loves them! On the first one, he said : “The shadows on that orange wall are so awesome, they look so real!” On the second photo, he said : “The paintings of the animals are so cool! I play pool with Daddy, it is the ‘funest’ game! My cue stick is little just like me.” Thank-you!

  2. I really like the second shot, Liz. The splashes of color in the artwork, pool balls, and furniture in the corner really pop agains the darkness of most of the background. It is kind of like a modern still life image.

    1. We’re totally on the same wavelength! Those things all relate to each other really well. I especially like the relationship between the splotchy big cat and the pool balls! Such a fun place to visit, we always feel relaxed there 🙂 And I like your “modern still life image” description very much! Thanks Mike.
