Have been back to this repeatedly and all I can say is I wish I had been there, there now, will be there. The conversation on the right is incredible. The simple contrast that creates that entire scene is beautiful. Like my favorite albums the teeth in this are only sinking in now.

Hehe -- love the title. Like the dog. Like the fact that she's starting to go out of the frame. I think that makes the shot, actually. I'm not exactly sure why. It leaves the story open and unfinished -- which works.

Happy and vital, just the way I like it. You have a good eye for juxtaposition.

The foreground waitress is beautiful, and painted by a Sumi-e brush. The diners are absorbed into the wall mural. These are subtle but very strange effects, making this photo not like other photos. It's not a photo *of* something interesting or important. It's a record of an unusual point of view, a hint at seeing the world in a different way.

This is fabulous. You've captured Ubique's style to perfection..the wall art, the humor, the pov, composition
and the processing is brilliant!

A dog for beer? A baby on a hat? A microphone picking up what her hair is saying? A hollow head? A high-heel ponytail? Keep them coming.

There is a lot to take in here and I rather like it. The dog along with the words "Best Friend" was the first thing I saw. I like that the dog is standing on the try and looks like he is about to take a lick of her ear, lol.

I love the segmentation of this - three photos in one. I like how 'Frank' is using her tray to give her a friendly sniff. I like how the guy in the hat is everybody's best friend; like the hat, he wears the label well.

Excellent composition and bold processing. I really like the deep black of her dress.

Well I adore Oscar Wilde, so big plus. And beer, so another plus. B&W; yet plussier! Grain? Check. Pretty girl in the beer delivery business? Plussier and plussier. You can hardly tick any more of my personal boxes.

I also like the photograph anyway because it's the kind of unfinished, or unresolved, snapshot that makes me hug my camera. Who is being favoured with that lovely smile? How much will he tip?

Honestly, I love this stuff because it's the one way that our real lives can be elevated as a sort of casual art.

You did good, and I thank you.
