We went out on a Sunday night. The photography workshop was over, and most had to leave early for home. My plans allowed me to stay overnight and travel to my next location Monday. So when Parish invited us out with Canon, I said Yes!
When you go out with a small group, you tend to focus on the immediate surrounds of the group you are with. Not necessarily the ambiance of the venue, restaurant, theatre. However, I was with photographers, and one of the greats. So this rule was somewhat out the door. As I mentioned in my prior blog entry, Parish immediately began to smile once we were seated. He saw the photographic opportunities with the natural lighting. Oh, yes we were seated outdoors on the front patio, that was covered by a wood, lattice I think, canopy. The weather was perfect that evening, in the upper 70's.
I watched the people as they came and left, selected my food, listened to the musical entertainment. Looking around, one could not have picked a more perfect evening. The staff were courteous, attentive, serving our every need. The lighting as the sun went down was gorgeous. Couples came to have dinner along with business men, and of course our large group.
Here are some photos. I strongly recommend you visit their website, being the photos there are much better. You can click on my photos to enlarge them, and if you click on the enlarged photo, you will index through all the photos.
