iPhone Wednesday #6: Cookin' at KISS

iPhone Wednesday #6:  Cookin' at KISS

Photo & Text Copyright 2009 Seattle Daily Photo. All rights reserved, including reproduction or republishing.

It's the sixth in my iPhone Wednesday series, where I take and edit the photo with my iPhone. I played with vignetting and a reflective frame for this shot of a cook in action. This is K.I.S.S. Cafe on NW Market Street, where the owner and her staff "keep it simply scrumptious" in a friendly casual atmosphere. Their motto: "Keep it local. Keep it real. Keep it simple." I feel a little sorry for cooks on these warmer days (although there is a nice breeze with a hint of autumn to it today). This guy was dishing up some really tasty fresh fare while other staff were stocking the coolers with their famous offering of 99 Bottles of Beer (if they don't carry your fave domestic or imported micro brew today, you will probably find it there next time, as they constantly rotate their extensive offerings). It's the kind of place that makes their own pickles and soups from scratch and is happy to host your party, cater it, or just welcome you to the counter for a beer after work.

My fellow CDPBers Chuck and Ming have started posting iPhone shots on Wednesdays, too: Chuck at One a Day - Mostly Seattle, and Ming the Merciless formerly of NYC Dialy Photo, now at Bangor Daily Photo.

Love the reflection in the countertop.

Chuck, that's actually a reflective frame effect from one of my apps. Glad you like it, though.

Glad you can see it at all! Thanks again.

Great effect. I like it. Also we may have to look this place up next time we're in town. Thanks for the tip.

Would that I had a cell phone that would do such lovely photos... and even editing!

Like this a lot, especially since I took a photo at twilight of their KISS sign outside when I was walking by. Had no time to go in!

I'm just watching with awe at what you're doing with a cell phone. I prefer this use to the application that facilitates public displays of uncivility.

That's a fun shot (but I feel sorry for the staff on hot days, too).

Love the reflection on the table!

Love this iPhone idea. Thanks for coming up with it, Kim.
