December at the Lockspot Cafe

One of our family members works near this world famous cafe, so while paying him a visit yesterday I took the opportunity to do a bit of a photowalk in the snow along the ship canal, and then we had dinner here at the Lockspot. . .inside, of course :-).

We are going on holiday to the SF Bay Area this week, so I'd like to introduce you to SDP's first ever guest photographer, Ervin Vice in whose capable hands I'm leaving you tomorrow. I know him by his "nom de lens," Penseroso. I know you will come to admire his work as much as I do. I can't muster enough superlatives to describe his ability to create stunning images of Seattle and just about anything else he aims his lens at. I became acquainted with his passion for making gorgeous shots a couple years ago and have been a big fan ever since. Please make him feel at home during his week in the City Daily Photo community. And, DO ask him about his two handsome cats! :-)

Really nice photo - I just love the fish and chips sign above the cafe. are they as good as the fish & chips in London though? ;-)

I've not had fish and chips in London, but I don't think anyone can get better fish anywhere than the fresh stuff that comes off the fishing boats to the restaurants in Seattle. This place serves up really tasty cod, halibut, or salmon.

Nice winter feeling here. The snow works really good with the red. I have never heard about this world famous cafe until today. Where does the fame come from?

Bibi said...

Sounds good. Haven't been there...yet. Drop by Belgrade sometime! Been missing you.

Kim said...

Well Steffe, the current world fame comes from the televised show "The Most Dangerous Catch," because the crabbing boat guys from the series all eat and drink here. The other fame comes from the fish they serve and that it is seen by most tourists going to and from the locks here.

Best place for fish and chips, MB

I love local places like this. Always beats the chain restaurants that seem to be more and more common.
