Love the hint of hazy smoke in the Greek photo. Bet it smelled good, at the time.

Really cool photos and I really like your new header photo....a really great pic :)

Pat Tillett said...

thanks all...the smell of grilling onions drew me to the guy in the first pic. I would have liked to have used my good camera there, but people didn't seem to thrilled about having their pics taken.

There is something about black and white photography that just screams raw emotion.

Looks like a much more INTERESTING place than when I was there as a kid decades ago.

Talli - I wish they had a subway where I live! thanks!

Robyn - Every Thursday at 6 PM, they close down the main drag (Palm Canyon Drive) and have a massive street fair. Food, live music, crafts, artists, farmers, bakers, etc. Palm Springs is hopping on that day.

Jesse - I totally agree. Somethings just have to be black and white.

Pat Tillett said...

Kimberly and Chuck - I love brats too. They are terrible for you, but so darn tasty!

Joan - Yup, she looked like an aging hippie. thanks, I love candids also. Too bad a lot of people don't like their pics taken.

Bossy Betty said...

Love these! I always want to get candids like this but chicken out.

Pat Tillett said...

Betty - I got a few dirty looks getting these. In fact I have one where the Rabbi is looking at me with his arms spread...with a "what are you doing?" look on his face...

Jerry said...

Great pics! I like the new title picture too!

Sarah said...

I really love watching at pictures and yours are incredible! Seriously, I'm impressed because they're really great..! I love these and I'm glad you'll be importing more of your pics here!:D

Pat Tillett said...

Jerry and Sarah - Thanks, I'm kinda sad to let the photo blog go, but at least more people will get to see them now...

I'm hungry now! How was the weather out there? Do you just go out for the day? Or do you stay the night out there?

Pat Tillett said...

ABAO - The weather was beautiful. About 80 with very little humidity. Although, we do sometimes drive there for the day (1.5 hrs each way), this time we were there for two days. there were 10 of us. me, wife, two daugthers w/husbands and kids, and a family friend. Lots of fun!
