⎨Oui Presse⎬

I'd stepped into Oui Presse café a couple of times to see if they had the Gentlewoman and had always wanted to come back with a friend so last Monday, I enlisted Cynthia -- who I knew would love the place and find it very different from the hipster dwelling coffee shops in this city -- to give the place a try with me. Because I'm still off caffeine, I had a delicious ginger herbal tea, eyed the buttery croissants and vowed to come back when I can eat gluten and dairy again. I think I've found my favorite café in this city.

J'étais déjà allée chez Oui Presse deux fois, mais uniquement pour voir s'ils avaient un magazine que je cherchais (The Gentlewoman). Et je m'étais dit ces deux fois qu'il fallait absolument que j'y retourne pour prendre un café et plein de photos. Quand j'ai proposé à Cynthia de la retrouver dans un café, c'est à Oui Presse que j'ai pensé. Je savais qu'elle apprécierait l'atmosphère et la décoration. Et le nombre bien plus réduit de hipsters. Comme je suis actuellement un régime sans gluten, sans caféine ou théine et surtout sans produits laitiers, je n'ai pas pu goûter leurs croissants mais je vais y retourner bientôt. Je crois que j'ai trouvé mon nouveau café préféré.

    1. Thank you, Jesse! After you first used that phrase to describe a photo I'd taken, I realized that it's one of the things I love, taking portraits of a place.

    1. Thank you! It was my first time using Portra 800 and I didn't know what to expect at all! I've seen it used by people who shoot mostly outdoors so I knew I would get something very different.

  5. I'm enjoying the different, 'level' perspective you use for table shots.

    1. Yeah, I realized I love that style and there's no way I could shoot any other way with my C220 and the waist level finder.
