savor


solo post - L, iphone

T gets embarrassed when I take pictures at a restaurant, but with the iphone I can be a little bit more discreet, so I slipped this one in. We had a nice dinner at Cafe Intermezzo last night. They have the most wonderful outdoor patio – you're taken to Vienna when you dine there. Tonight we had turkey and brie crepes with raspberry preserves, Cafe Brio and tiramisu torte. It was breezy and comfortable outside, almost like autumn. There is nothing I enjoy more than to sit outdoors at a coffee shop with friends, my daughter or a good book. My daughter laughs at me because 9 times out of 10 when we're eating someplace like this I'll say, "I love this, I feel like I'm on vacation." Alot of times before I even say it she anticipates my pleasure and says ," I know... you feel like you're on vacation, right?" and we could be in our own backyard - literally. Why is that? I do like my sunshine and fresh air – I savor every moment of it.

secret: I modified my iphone photo, to give it more DoF, in photoshop.

I embarrass my daughter in public with my camera too sometimes. It's a lovely photo.

I'm catching up on all that I missed last week! Oh, I love eating outdoors also. I don't do it nearly enough.

Taken to Vienna for dinner would be grand! Love that feeling of being on vacation but actually being on vacation...

If you'd like to participate, there is a blog award at Hint for you :)

Your iphone puts my camera to shame. But then it's not the equipment. It's your eye.

It's good to see you creating...

You do so make me long for an iPhone of my own. Of course, I don't think that alone would help me take pictures like yours.
