Original Joe’s that is. Shot in downtown San Jose, a little pricey, but good food and wonderfual atmosphere.

The original Original Joe’s in San Francisco burned down a few years ago, but recently re-opened in a new location in North Beach with some of the furnishings and other stuff salvaged from the first restaurant.

I’ll shoot anything that catches my eye, but I love it when somebody says “I never looked at it that way before” or even just a little “ooooh”. If I can make you stop and say “hmm”, that’s the best. I normally use minimal processing; a little bump in color and/or contrast, maybe a little cropping. But sometimes I just can’t resist the urge to play with an image.

  • Thanks Caitlin. I almost posted it in B&W (pretty cool too), but decided to stay with the color version.
