New Restaurant, New Camera, New Lens – All Excellent!

I had to work at home today so that I could be here to deal with a few building issues. That’s the bad news. The good news is that I finally had the chance to eat lunch at M┼ŹNO – the highly-anticipated new restaurant in our building. I am thrilled to report that everything about lunch was excellent. The shots above show proud chef Todd Wilson and his classy interpretation of a grilled cheese sandwich. I was so hungry that I forgot to take a picture of my chicken sandwich before tearing into it. It was delicious.

These are among the first shots taken with my new Nikon D3 and 14-24 mm lens. Two things stand out. The first is the sharpness of this amazing lens. The second not-so-obvious thing is that these images were shot at an ISO setting of 1600. Wow! This camera will change the way I shoot.

Lucky for me, the owners of the restaurant noticed my new camera and offered me the chance to do some photography for their web site in exchange for food and wine. Hm… How long do you think I had to ponder this one?

    I think you make them look great and next time Bob, the kids and I are up there, we should experience their greatness.. Anything other than grilled cheese?

    Woohoo! I am so glad you and Todd were able to work that out, because I had already told him how great your work is. I had my first salad from Mono yesterday and it was fabulous! Not too big, not too small – and best of all, not too expensive. What an improvement, eh? Like night and day. I can’t wait for dinners at Mono with friends from the ‘hood. Cheers, Dude!
