coffee and cameras

Spending some time in Louisiana (more images to come once film is developed + scanned).

And of course, coffee is first on my list of places to visit while I am home.

Imagine my surprise when I walked in and saw all of those cameras – heaven!   And the other nice touch – the owner’s photography is displayed on all of the walls.  Nothing like talking cameras over coffee, I could probably do that all day.

Loved this place, I’ll definitely be back.

On a side note, I’m really loving Fuji Pro 400H film these days.  I’ve overexposing by one stop, and I’m finding that makes a world of difference.

    what a find! I’ve never tried Fuji Pro 400H (have they discontinued it?), but I do exactly the same with their Superia 400, and it’s so much better that way…trying to do the same with Kodak seems to just muck up the colours, I’ve found.ReplyCancel

    i love all of these. i was discussing with someone today the menu i would have if i ever owned a coffee shop, and in the back of my mind i was also laying out plans for hanging my work, and other people’s work on the walls; how the windows would be perfect for optimal light; the coffee cups & china as photogenic as possible, the tables made out of some kind of rustic wood. it was a fun little daydream :) props to this owner for making it a reality.ReplyCancel

    @ suzie, glad to see I’m not the only one overexposing with Fuji film! And yes, Fuji still makes this film.

    @belinda – thank you!

    @sarah – I think I have had that same dream as well! The pride and joy of this owner was so evident in every detail of his coffee shop….ReplyCancel
