Shadows and favorites

Sunday, November 8, 2009



(Shown Below) Along with my submission to the Shadow Gallery, a wonderful project run by the very talented Tracy of Hey Harriet, I wanted to share a little on one of my favorite Restaurants. Located in the Temple City area of Los Angeles. I don't get the opportunity to visit often but am very much a fan of it's orange, peach and brown decor...



(Jasmine Tea)



(Kung Pao Shrimp)





(My fortune cookie told me to sell out)



(Great sign isn't it?)



Thank you so much again Tracy
Always amazing fun in hunting for shadows!

This looks like an old school Chinese Restaurant - so terrific - I love the look of it and your photos really capture the atmosphere! I can almost smell the wonderful food.... You're fortune cookie made me laugh - "your ideas are perfectly acceptable"!!! Now you know!! Hehehe!

Have a lovely, lovely Sunday and week ahead dear Gabbi - so glad you have a brand spanking new computer!! XX

Sarah said...

Lovely shots of that restaurant. The food looks delicious and the colours are great-especially those seats!

Hey Harriet said...

These are all so lovely and now I'm oh-so-hungry! Thanks for that ;) It looks like a charming restaurant. I love that you took photos of your food! Isn't it funny how we bloggers do that? I'm always taking photos of food and coffee when out and about (I mainly post them to Flickr) & my non-blogging non-flickring friends think it's all very odd. They just don't understand! And they get cranky with me that it takes me so long to finish any of my meals because I'm spending too much time taking photos of my food. Which is usually cold by the time I do get around to eating it...hehe ;)

Sorry, that was a bit of a ramble and a half! Hope you're having a lovely weekend Gabbi!
