Cell phone street photography in France

We had business in Annecy, France. After the day’s meetings, I took to the streets to wander about the old town. As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I was packing my new LG G3 for camera gear. These photos were taken with a spattering of light sources in the early evening hours.

Who doesn’t like shooting produce?

It seemed like every one was taking pictures with their cell phones.

Seafood in the middle of Germany?

The first time I went to Germany, my host suggested that we go out to a seafood restaurant. My first thought was, “You are going to take a man from Gloucester to seafood restaurant in the middle of Germany?”

Well, yes. The restaurant is Hörnsheimer Eck in the old part of Wetzlar. I have been there three times and they do not disappoint.

We started out with tuna tartar, octopus, and crayfish. Some sun dried tomatoes on the left of my plate, crawdad, marinated eggplant and fresh mozzarella on the right. When I’m in Germany, I go for the wheat beer.

Above is a grilled fish platter that included salmon, swordfish and tuna. Look closely and you will see some octopus. Now I’m not a big octopus eater. But let me tell you at Hörnsheimer Eck, it is to die for.

Something I’ve always admired

I’ve always admired this idyllic setting along 1A in Ipswich, Massachusetts. I’ve had my eye on this spot for over five years, but never had a reason to shoot it. That changed last Saturday morning. I was afraid that I would return from Europe to find that I missed the show. The sugar maples are doing very well this fall.

Sugar Maple Butter-butts

It has been a while since I’ve shot some birds. Sunday morning I was driving by the Oak Hill Cemetery and found this drop dead gorgeous sugar maple. I just had to shoot it. Cemeteries are great places for fall foliage. There is generally a good deal of space around the trees and there are no power lines in the picture.

There were a good number of Yellow-rumped Warblers flitting around the cemetery.
