Restaurant Doorway

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 20 August 2007 in Food & Cuisine and Portfolio.

This is the entrance doorway from the street into the Sardinian restaurant from yesterdays photo - 2/3rds of the restaurant seating is outside set amongst grape vines and olive trees that grow in the sheltered external courtyard of the building.

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

For purchasing high quality archival prints of any of these photos you can send me an email by clicking here or by going to my website Ian Bramham - Fine Art Photography where prices are listed in the gallery sections under each individual photo.

Lorraine from Canada

Very original restaurant shot, with the door as framing, it makes the setting intimate. And you were complaining about having no imagination!!! tsk, tsk.:)

@Lorraine: Thanks very much for your continuing support Lorraine. I was very pleased with this photo but also realise at the same time that it is pretty 'safe and cuddly'. It is nice to be able to alternate between photos that feel a bit riskier and ones that are less challenging.
Tomorrows photo is a bit more "off the wall" - in fact so much so that I have nearly replaced it with something 'safer' a few times today - why does the simple act of posting a photo on a website feel like an act of bravado sometimes?

Evi from Athens, Greece

When i first saw it, i certainly thought it was one from a trip to Greece, but it isn't!

@Evi: Thanks Evi - I love your website that appears when I click on your name. Is there also an AM3 version so I can leave comments?

Brian from West Lafayette, United States

Nice capture of a special moment! I'd love to be invited to step inside!

20 Aug 2007 3:02pm

@Brian: Thanks Brian - it was quite a strange experience to step straight from the street into that warm inviting restaurant where most people were sat out in the open.

Evi from Athens, Greece

@Ian Bramham: Thanks for your nice comment, it's my husband's photos and web design, actually! No there isn't a AM3 version, but you can easily leave comments on the site, on each photo, or sign the guestbook! Your comments will be checked first, then uploaded!
Please, seel also my 9 year old daughter's photos here in aminus3!
Best greetings from Greece

Shrig from United States

Wonderful framing!

@Shrig: Thanks Shrig - I have a love of normal doorway photos but when they are open like this with that view beyond I couldn't resist.

Marina from Tomar/Lisboa, Portugal

See The Light from Newcastle, United States

Beautiful Shot GREAT color.

21 Aug 2007 5:32am

@See The Light: Thanks - I'm glad you liked the colour. Since seeing that wonderful 'Hibiscus' photo on your site I have made a mental note to give delicacy and subtelty a chance from time to time as well.

Lorraine from Canada

Dear Ian, in answer to your response: can you spell EGO? LOL can't imagine ever dropping in and thinking 'duh'

21 Aug 2007 9:47am

@Lorraine: Yes :-) It was meant rhetorically but that doesn't come across so well in print sometimes. ''Baring the soul'' was what I had in mind (doesn't come easy to us macho fellas ya know :-)but, I guess when it comes down to it, ''Ego'' is close enough!
Best wishes, Ian

Carson from Portland, United States

Nice story you tell in this shot! The cropping adds so much.

@Carson: Thanks Carson - By the way, I left a note for you on your own photo for today.
