Cup of Tea?

There are so many cyclists out this winter, on the roads and on the Lakefront Trail. Definitely more than last winter. Makes me want to sit down and have a cup of tea with someone at this random cafe table in the middle of nowhere.

I’m the only one who stopped, though. Maybe next time.

    Great arrangement. I would love to have a coffee or tea there, even in the winter.

    Nice use of shadow and lighting. You’re getting really good at composition.

    Mentioned LGRAB in my blog today and in past posts. Thanks so much for your inspiration!

    A winter tea party on the lakefront? I think you’ll get some takers.

    Are you riding on the path just South of Oak St/East LSD? Even with the ice I have been able to do it.

  7. Wait, is that food & drink stand actually open through the winter? The cafe on the Charles River trail in Boston is closed-closed-closed.

    Beautiful shots of the table and chairs.

    Unbelievable photos! I love the lines of the middle shot especially. (Though the dogprints in the snow and the silhouetters in the first are yummy, too.)

    You know you’re going to have to eventually publish a collection of Cycling around Chicago photographs and essays, don’t you?

    I want to echo everyone’s sentiment regarding the b/w photos, as they are quite beautiful. A little melancholy, but I think everything is.

    Can you provide the specs on your camera gear?

    Those are wonderful pictures. They have a charming, old world look to them. I love black-and-white.

  11. Really delightful shots of one my favorite subjects. The cafe scene. An important element of the simple life and the perfect biking destination.

    Oma is just so beautiful. Someday, someday…. perhaps.

    @Lovely Bicycle! – The food hut is not open in winter, unfortunately. I could go for some hot kebabs on my winter commute.

    @David – Thanks. My camera set up is pretty basic. I have a Nikon D3000, the least expensive DSLR in their line up, with the Nikkor 35 mm 1.8 lens. I love the lens so much I never use my kit lens anymore. I’ve been taking RAW files and developing them myself with Adobe Lightroom, which makes a huge difference.
