My Town Friday Shoot Out - Street Food

“I doubt whether the world holds for any one a more soul-stirring surprise than the first adventure with ice cream” ~ Heywood C. Broun, American Writer (1888-1939)



OK. So I only have one photo. But once again, I made the deadline.

There is nothing like enjoying an ice cream on a hot afternoon. I captured this lady sitting on the dock after she bought an ice cream from the Ice Cream Gallery around the corner. I have lots of street food photos but they are locked up in my replacement Dell - the fans are not even running now. Another "new" Dell is on the way!

And while I was at the docks this afternoon, I captured these people coming in from Smith Island on the Twister. The Twister is docked at Somers Cove Marina. I'm thinking there must be some street food somewhere on there - perhaps a crab cake doggie bag?

You are the first visit for the new post. Ice cream and a boat, two of my favorite things. As my daddy would say, "You did good!"
Patty, would you send me any kind of email at all so I can send you one in return. I am having a hard time sending an original one. Just want to run a couple of things by you. Thanks, Gordon

Can't beat ice cream. There are times of the year when it is too hot to eat outside. Even crabs and beer on a picnic table covered with old newapaper.

Barry said...

When the picture is good enough, you only need one!

That ice cream look mighty inviting, Patty!

At least you got the theme right! Boy am I embarassed. The ice cream shot is precious.

Ice cream is the best "street food" and indoor food and.....

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.
That lady is really enjoying hers! Well done, as always Patti! You manage in one shot what some of us struggle with in every camera click! Photography is so fun! Have a great week! =D

No quicker way to reconnect with one's inner child than ice cream. It is one of the sweet pleasures in life.

What a great photo - you really captured a moment there. I'm wondering if the man standing has a cone in his right hand or is he eyeing hers?

Melissa said...

The icecream melting down her hand. yummy, even though it is freezing here, I wish it was me licking the ice cream.
