We have a tradition where the birthday person gets to pick their restaurant. For my wife’s December birthday, she selected Roaring Fork. It was also her choice for Mother’s Day, which I documented in this post. The architecture is distinct and upscale. My black and white treatment made it look moodier than in reality.
I brought my camera again because you never know. And, I tend to document everything, anyway. I tasked myself to creatively make a different kind of image.
The circular ceiling lamps uniquely identify this place. But, the view through the glass and porch makes for a multi-layered experience. Shooting through glass is an easy trick to add dimension, and it can give a double exposure sort of feel.
We went for happy hour because their regular meals are more bountiful than we need. The place was lively and rapidly filling up. I had flashes of pre-pandemic festiveness.
