This isn’t the best picture I’ve ever taken, but most of the lighting was provided by candlelight. The interior of the building was quite dark, which made it almost impossible to get a sharply focused image without using a flash (and you know how much I hate flash).

When you order a beer in this restaurant, they don’t mess around!

This photograph was taken at the top of the stairway next to the bathroom. I like this image because of the contrast between dark and light, straight and curved lines, and black, white and orange and that lovely subtle yellow on the window sill.

    I really like the first candle image and the last image with the candles around the window. Nicely done!

    I had to google kasha, but basically it is, although they didn’t call it that. It was barley meal. Very nice.
