Of course it's healthy only with the classic expresso & Bas-Armagnac digestif.
Just don't do lens sharpness tests for the following couple hours...
I miss your "neck of the woods". My mother is from Boston, and we lived in Cambridge for a while years ago... corner of Museum and Gorham, right across the street from the Harvard Divinity School. I stopped by there a couple of years ago to take some pictures. The current owner confronted me, but relented when I explained my history with the place.
José, with his mild French accent: I'm afraid you can't reserve a table on Christmas Eve. We're closed.
Me: But Norwegians celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve. How can you be closed?
José: So do the French. That's the reason why we are closed.
So we have to struggle through seven courses at the Swiss guy's place instead. Lloyd, I'll send you a friendly thought while we navigate our way from Amuse Bouche to Crepes Jubilées. Cheers

Viablex1: Great "Birthday" shots. The cropped version's really nice. Cheers.
Our favorite espresso stand closed this summer. This is the "closing" party. We'd been going there for 20+ years. Owned by sisters and our friends. Sad. I processed them all in Lightzone. Thanks for looking. Cheers.

Thanks Matt! Nice set also..sorry to hear about the closing ..
Jorgen, Fun Balloon Image!
Something different... Two swallows on a wire.
One left on a whim,
The other one decided to go for the jump.
Corlan, nice tone,contrast & composition! Love the simplicity of the 2nd one! The wire gives it a nice perspective!
that balloon kicks ***!!!
from rural , TN today
Super IQ Mr. Viablex1! Love it!
I like this lens. What are "Medjool" dates? Cheers.
D700; 85mm f/1.4; 1/500s; ISO 400
speaking of the Boston Red Sox.... remember when this guy used to hang around there?
By the way, here is what I found on medjool dates in Wikipedia:
[QUOTE=m_driscoll;165507]Nice composition and subject isolation. Very simple; but, dynamic. Cheers.
Thanks Matt! Nice Creamy Bokeh on the "Dates" Image!
Fulton...Great "Manny being Manny" Shot!
My friend currently attending the Art Institute in Atlanta
My Great Niece Ava...
D700 R 80 Lux
love the expression on her face she does look like she might have a sense of humor
Steve: Thanks. Nice B & W of your niece. Contrasty without looking harsh.
Viablex1: Nice to see the old ways aren't forgotten. How long do you estimate it takes for each shot?
If it's from the Farmer's Market, looking at the prices it sounds like the original philosophy of the place is long gone...
Steve, seconding everyone here. The whole Ava series on your gallery looks terrific -the thrid photo from the left there is just... wow!
(btw sorry for calling you "Mark" before, just stopped at the name present in the signature link at the time)
