Weekday morning at Jack's

I have blogged about this little place in the South Street Seaport more times than I can count now, and probably have taken almost the same photos (digital and film alike), but I guess I'm just drawn to the fresh flowers, the exposed brick, the great muffins, and the austere wooden furniture. Sounds about right, no? Oh and of course the good coffee and that it's just about close enough to go out of my way for in the morning.

I present to you Jack's on Portra 400NC. It's not too hard to guess which picture I liked best. I could eat those delicious film tones + a little grain right up.

It appears most of the blogosphere has taken off for the holidays. Wah! I'll probably slow down a bit myself, but no serious blogging break for me. :)

  7. @ash, I've used LTI and Luster. They ain't cheap but I'm not sure I trust Duane Reade with the professional film. May have to try it for budget's sake!

  8. I think every time you make a post for Jack's Coffee I comment about how this is my favourite b/c of your amazing photographs but you always seem to outdo yourself again and again! I love these photographs, the film tones, the dof, the subjects, EVERYTHING! You rock!
