Happy Bastille Day!

Had lunch at French Roast, a restaurant on 85th and Broadway. I enjoyed an endive au gratin and a glass of deep, rich, red wine. Naturally, I photographed the endive, but decided to post this French-looking photo for you today on Bastille Day. Vive la France, et vive la cuisine française!

Vive la France! Your wonderful black & white Cafe photo and tribute to Bastille Day reminded me of the wonderful scene in the movie "Casablanca" where they sing a rousing "La Marseillaise" to drown out the German's singing...

I like your photos, and I started looking at them mainly because I know some people from Belgrade, and wanted to see what it looked like. Thanks for sharing. .. Your b/w photo did remind me about French photos, so I too will say; "Vive la France, et vive la cusine francaise!

And: Enjoy your holiday!

Perfect photo for today, Bibi and Happy Bastille Day to you! I love the whole image but find my eye drawn to the woman in the background - what a profile. Great shot.

I was with Bibi when she surreptitiously took this photo, focusing on the woman sitting by the window. It's a good shot of her. Like it in black 'n white.
