We had a wonderful dinner at Pasta E Pomodoro in the North End. Our server was fun and I loved the atmosphere and food. Yummers.
The first photo is from walking by Neptune Oysters. Another place I love but always packed on the weekends. Not sure where the chicken was but, I love ceramic chickens. Something about them.
We ended the night taking the orangeline home. The man across the way was snoozing while waiting for the train. It looks funny just to see just his head.

After dinner last night we stopped by Caffe Vittoria for dessert and after dinner drinks. It was crowded and buzzing with activity. I love this cafe, it has a wonderful european feel and it is great people watching.
Have a great Sunday. I am off to the Boston Handmade annual meeting today. I am looking forward to seeing the new building, Mudflat studios has moved into and seeing all my crafty friends.

I was having a little fun photographing some vintage camera that I have. One Argus and one Kodak. Every once in awhile I experiment with "through the viewfinder photos" or TTV. It is a different way of seeing your subject.
Nelson just thought the cameras were there as a scratching post. Silly cat
Below is a little project. I am trying to revamp and add to my Etsy shop. I have a little down time and I am trying to use it to my advantage. I making necklaces and adding more photo prints

Celtics trounced the Orlando Magic. Of course, we had to get hotdogs and popcorn. Going to the games is always fun. Maybe we will go again.

Last Sunday, I took a walk around Dedham Square. the day before we had a storm and was looking forward to getting out of the house. I have new boots this year, which keep my feet very warm. I took out my Tilt Shift camera to take these photos. I have been practicing finding good subjects to photograph. It seems like buildings work well.
The tilt shift lens can be expensive. A good compromise is to make these on Photoshop and pick up a small camera like I have.
Below, is a Tilt shift done on Photoshop. It is fun to see the difference. This is a unique photo. Someone has stolen this bench and it is no longer in front of this historic house. Not nice!

Dedham Square Artist Guild. I used my Nikon macro lens. Milly was very interested in the flowers. She is very cute and I was thankful she didn't try to eat them.

Some photos of very tasty food. The first three are from Legal Seafoods which is steps from the Aquarium. Just our luck because, it was really cold and windy out. I love their fried clams
That night, I had a groupon that is about to expire so we headed over to Masona Grill in West Roxbury. Our food was delicious. I had a hard time choosing between the carrot cake and crisp for dessert. The chef was took pity on me and gave me a small slice of carrot cake and then brought out the crisp for all of us. Yum!
How are you spending your Sunday? I am finally going to sit down and update my websites. I know I have said this before but here goes.

I had some fun with my Nikon macro lens. I love that you can get so close to your subjects. It is hard to get Milly to be still. She is a very curious kitty. I find the macro works better with a tripod but sometimes, I am too lazy to bother with it and I was photographing a kitty in the moment.
I also, photographed a few plants in my yard. There is still beauty in the winter.
We finally have a bit of snow and more tomorrow. I am trying to spend some of my weekend updating my design and photo websites. It is on my list of things to do. Wish me luck, What are you plans?
