today some more interiors of mine and a few more words of wisdom
to accompany them...
ok, mainly coffee-based memories
this is not at all the photo of this restaurant that the magazine wanted.
for one thing, it only shows one table.
mainly magazines that i shoot for want to see wide interiors showing as many tables
as possible and giving a great view of the room.
but i always try to take a few photos for myself ( and of myself )
and this is one that i liked.
this is another photo i did for myself, though i did include it in my edit for the magazine.
sometimes it's not just about the room for a restaurant review.
for certain places it's almost more about the view.
i don't think this place got a good write-up, but it did have cracking views.
( and they made me a coffee while i waited for the tables to be set )
i remember a couple of things about this place.
1. i photographed it the day after i got home from capri
2. they didn't offer me a coffee
a japanese place in the city.
i photographed this place a couple of times for different clients.
i don't think they did coffee here. i certainly remember going to a little
place a few minutes away to grab one though.
er, anyway... it's a nice looking joint, right ?
no lie but i have photographed this place maybe 6 or 7 times over the years.
i think the staff were mainly french.
they didn't offer me a coffee.
this was in the city.
the restaurant is on the left, the other side of the screen. the main bit of this pic
is the chef's table. do you like a chef's table thing ?
isn't it tricky wondering if you should watch them working ?
trying to avoid eye contact and all that ?
just me then.
these people made me two coffees.
can i just say "grrrr !"
i have story about this place.
it's not a good one.
i shot this place a week after the grrr ! episode at the previous place.
let's just say i was using a loan camera here with a new £750 viewfinder.
i think the chef at this place was 12 years old or something...
a young genius chef anyway.
they made me a coffee on arrival, plus i had lunch here afterwards.
this place had the best music playing out of any restaurant i can remember shooting.
i think i had to use shazam maybe 6 or 7 times during the hour or so i was working here.
the lady who looked after me was not only very, very friendly and helpful...
but she made me two coffees.
oh and i debuted my supreme camo af-1's on this shoot.
ok, last pic for today.
my main memory of this place is that i'd just met the boss for a coffee before i
came here. then as soon as i walked in they offered me a coffee.
it was a good day.
i hope you like my interiors pics.
sorry for rattling on about coffee rather than the interiors themselves.
if you have any questions, please comment and i'll try to answer.
