al fresco

August 17, 2009








hello there.

today, i thought i’d share some photos taken at various tables over the weekend. lots of good eating + drinking with some very good people. as you can see, we beat the heat with cold drinks and dining outside (capped off last night with italian ices at ralph’s on graham avenue … perfect).

how was your weekend?

good day to you!

    If the lights in the leaves was on your Flickr stream, I’d be favorite-ing it something fierce.

    is it bad to want a margarita at 8 in the morning?

    Oh, how fabulous. I’m glad you were able to get out of the office!

    I just had lunch, but now I am getting hungry again.

    And the shot with the lamps…… indeed a FAV !!!!

    I must admit I love how your blog is the perfect mix of journaling and fooding. two of my very favourite things in the world. in one place. with beautiful pictures.

    I’m smitten.

    I like the way the 2nd and 3rd images have very similar color combinations. Were they taken in different venues?

    looks like some great eats! my weekend included a garlic potluck–what could be better?

    also, i had no idea the dumbo general store turned into a mexican restaurant at night. what a fun fact!

    hi friends. thanks for your nice comments – makes me smile on this monday morning.

    (jen, the yellow chair photo was taken at pacifico)

    Oh you had me with the melon and prosciutto. What a perfect summer weekend you had!

    hi, brian! i forget how i found your blog exactly, but wanted to pop in to say how much i have enjoyed it (so much so i started from the beginning to catch myself up). your photos are just awesome and it’s been fun to see how your talent has evolved. you inspired me to do the 365 project. something i had been reading about and watching others do for a few years now, but i never made the jump. now i have and i’m having so much fun! thanks!

    i grew up on the east coast and lived in boston for many years with my husband (we live in san francisco now). your photos capture the east coast and nyc in the way i always like to remember it.

    just a little hello from copenhagen – denmark.
    i l.o.v.e. your blog. it’s my daily go to for nice words and pretty pictures. you seem to have an eye for wonderful details, beautiful colours and perfect light – i think your pictures show that.
    have another nice day

    i spent my weekend selling hot coconut macaroons at a festival. (we had ovens on the stall!)
    it was great fun!

    I love the chair and the lights!

    What a neat site you have! Very inspiring!! Are those cantaloupes with some type of meat on top? Could you share a little more about them?

  28. August 30, 2009 7:23 pm

    this particular series of photos is outstanding in every way! that prosciutto e melone – oh, my!

    come winter, these images will evoke such a longing for lazy, hazy summer days and eating al fresco :-)
