fast food . . . ;-)

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 1 February 2011 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

These folks are dining quietly in a lovely restaurant, and I am peering through the window from across a pond, admiring the effect of the light inside and the glow from lights strung along the roof.

A jittery shot, yes, but I decided to develop it rather than discard it. It holds a certain je ne sais quoi, n'est-ce pas ? ;-)
(And, it's SILLY TUESDAY after all.)
