I spend way too much time on Instagram looking at food or posting my own food pictures. My mother always says to me “You’re always looking at pictures of food!” 😆 What can I say? Food is one of the great joys of my life. When I saw pictures of the ahi tuna tacos from Del Frisco’s Grille, I knew I had to try them. They’re actually appetizers, or “food to fight over” as it’s listed on their menu, but I really wanted to try them. I also ordered the truffle mac and cheese and had myself a little party for one. Being appetizers, the tuna tacos were small, about the size of your palm, but there were four of them so your appetite would be satisfied. Okay, maybe not if there were other people with you, but if you were by yourself then you’d be fine. The food pics were taken with my phone. This place was kind of fancy and I felt self conscious enough pulling out my phone to take these pictures. I guess it’s something that I’m going to have to get over since food is such a big part of this blog. For some reason the picture of the truffle mac and cheese won’t post, so here’s the picture I put on Instagram.
I always try to walk around a bit after I eat to burn off all of those calories. I wanted to get a picture of all of the flags fully extended but this was as good as it was going to get so I snapped a picture and continued my walk.
There was some kind of street fair going on, so not being a fan of crowds I headed for the subway to go home and drop off the leftover food that I couldn’t finish.
I don’t use black and white as much as I used to since I mainly used black and white for my street photography, but I preferred it to color for this particular shot.
I had noticed a lot of new murals along the M15 bus route so I got my camera and headed out in that direction. On the way I saw this Prodigy gate art on a store along Hester St.
I’m not sure if this is new but it’s definitely eye catching.
I had taken a picture of this with my phone when I passed by it a few weeks ago but didn’t have a proper camera with me. The murals change so fast in this neighborhood that I didn’t want to risk this one being gone when I was finally able to go back. This is absolutely stunning. The detail is incredible. It’s so interesting to know that someone can actually have this much talent.
These murals are so big that you can’t get a full on shot if you’re standing on the sidewalk. There is a concrete island thing in the center of the street but the trees that are on the sidewalk block most of the mural when you’re standing there. You can stand in the street but I would always advise against that, although I do see some people who must not care too much about their safety, standing in the middle of the street just to get a shot.
Normally I’m not a fan of birds, but these birds look so pretty painted on the wall like that. At least there’s no danger of one of them pooping on you. 😆
