I started today off being woken up twice by phone calls. The second was my friend Kristen, who told me she was in the area and she’d like to hang out sometime today. So I hopped out of bed, and we went on a mini adventure to downtown Royal Oak.
We both brought out cameras (she brought her lenses too, I just opted for my 50mm) and we started off at Le Crepe on Washington Ave. Neither of us had eaten yet, so brunch was a great first stop.
We got hilariously into photographing our waters and her cappuccino before our crepes arrived. I really like the way this shot of her cappuccino turned out.
When the crepes arrived, there was standing on chairs happening (on Kristen’s part) to get good birds-eye view shots.
I don’t really like the colors that came out in the crepe pictures, and I think it has a lot to do with the plates. They were a yellowy-ivory based color with green circle lines. Probably would’ve looked better on some nice super clean white porcelain.
Fortunately, I did catch some nice shots of the WATER of all things. The backlighting was everything in this place. I was pleasantly surprised.
