It's about time I stopped in again, and I thought I'd share a few more photos from San Francisco with you. Some of you had recommended us to eat at La Boulange, and after getting turned around while hunting for the bakery too many times to count, we accidentally found it across the street!
You were absolutely right...I couldn't get enough of it. Seriously. I had some of these goodies to eat:
Well...the iced tea I may or may not have stolen from my husband...along with about half of his bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado sandwich. Are you a frantic food thief also? And wouldn't that little table look so prettied up with a big vase of bright flowers? Not that you would have any space left to even put your food down if there were flowers...
The view was gorgeous--I sat at a built-in bar and looked out huge glass windows onto the street. The photo about is actually the same picture copied, flipped, and pushed together. Kinda weird and interesting, huh? After I finally get my things together and finish up the first Photoshop tutorial from 1.5 hundred years ago, maybe I can show you how to make this little effect.
I had too much trouble trying to decide what to eat, so I just pointed to the mini turkey, cheddar and pesto sandwich in the window. It. was. DELICIOUS. So was the Napolean dessert. As you can see, we left no survivors.
Please don't tell me we're the only nerds who actually enjoy working a little bit during vacations. The boy programmed while I drew things. Do you recognize the illustration above? It's finally finished!! If you'd like to see the final, it's the banner at the top of Toshiko's blog called It's Not Her, It's Me. I'll show you some process drawings soon! :)
Anyway, while we worked, other people talked business as well. Others just sat and enjoyed their food and the cool air.
I loved sitting and watching people come and go. We were there for a while.
How can you resist that blue trim and the painted red base of the tables?? La Boulange is practically begging you to come back. And we did.
