My First RAW Image Shoot

Yesterday, Brittani and I ventured down to Greenville Ave in Dallas where I was inspired to snap a few photos with my new Nikon D5300. I took all of these shots with aperture priority and then played with them in Adobe Lightroom 5 before posting to Google+. I hope you enjoy!

I feel as though I should clarify my previous comment whereby I refer to "love". The term is used in a brotherly fashion, not to be misconstrued as attraction. I don't want people getting the wrong idea here even though Mr McDermott is a straight badass and probably has, as he should, many admirers.

The way Flipboard parsed the photo, at first I thought it was a weird looking poodle sniffing broccoli. When I opened the post in Flipboard, I see now it was your dinner.

Look what I got!

Just kidding, I've had this Samsung Galaxy Gear Live for almost a year now and I absolutely love it. Reasonably priced, too.

I'm a big fan of the original Main Street Bakery in Grapevine, but work in Plano and decided to give this location a try. I went in by myself for a quick lunch and found that the restaurant is designed differently than the Grapevine location. Upon walking in the door, there is a host(ess) stand and next to it were a cluttered pile of menus. Since there was no host(ess) there, I picked up a menu to peer through the options. After about 30 seconds, the hostess came up and seated me. My waiter showed up shortly thereafter and took my drink order while I looked over the two menus. There was a main menu that offered breakfast, lunch and "entrees" as well as another menu of "specials" although none of the prices seemed to deviate from what was on the regular menu. Craving something with beef, I asked the waiter to help me choose between the beef sliders, tenderloin sandwich and the french dip. He assured me that the french dip was the way to go. I ordered with a side of fries (included). When the food came, the fries, sandwich and au jus were all warm, however as I started to dig in (and I'm a fast eater) the plate quickly became cold. It was very disappointing dipping a lukewarm sandwich into a lukewarm bowl of au jus. Likewise, the fries (shoe string and cooked to a perfect crispy golden brown) were totally cold halfway through my sandwich. While I was making my way through my mediocre lunch, I noticed the couple across from me had ordered a pair of french dips and had to ask that a hot bowl of au jus be brought to their table. If not pressed for time, I would have probably voiced concern over my lackluster meal. However, after having such fond experiences at the Grapevine location, I fear that this crew doesn't keep their standards nearly as high. If you're in The Shops of Legacy and you have enough time to grab a sandwich, there are plenty of other places nearby that will give you a much better experience, which is such a shame, because the Main Street in Grapevine is one of my favorite spots in town.

Best Restaurant in Flower Mound There, I said it. Anamia's consistently delivers great service, wonderful drinks and amazing elevated Tex-Mex cuisine at reasonable prices. Come on the weekend and you'll usually find a line. Don't worry, it's worth the wait. Wanting to try the best of the best? The Tacos A La Mexicana feature a trio of succulent brisket tacos with a delicious cup of bean soup with an avocado salad and Mexican rice. Keep coming back and the staff will remember your face, your drink and your favorite things to order. This spot is full of energy and great for a family or first date. If I could give it six stars, I would.

Esparza's is a Grapevine staple. Located right off of Main Street, Esparza's offers a wide variety of Mexican and Tex Mex dishes along with a full bar. There is patio seating outside which is a great way to enjoy the cooler months in Texas. Drinks here can get expensive, with most margaritas between $10-$15. With just a few drinks and standard fare, you can quickly rack up the tab. Also, the inside dining room by the bar is very noisy. Pro: right across the street from an EV charging station Con: the local birds tend to frequent the patio outside, looking for stray tortilla strips

So-So Experience Tonight with Great Recovery Normally, I would give this place 4 stars. Only not 5 because I think the beer is too expensive. $7 a pint is pushing it. Tonight the service was subpar. Our waiter offered us dessert before we had our pizza. Twenty minutes later we're still waiting. It's my wife's 30th birthday. This is embarrassing for me. I hope it's embarrassing for him. Update: Manager apologized, bought us a pie and a pair of cocktails and the server made up. Everything turned out great! As they say, all's well that ends well.

An Enhanced Soul Food Experience Having moved to Texas from Tennessee, I was disappointed in the lack of true southern cooking options. In search of something new, my fiance and I decided to give this place a shot after leaving the Galleria and we are glad we did. The menu is a "modern/gourmet" take on soul food favorites like chicken and waffles and shrimp and grits. I had the shrimp, fish and grits with jalapeño grits, red eye gravy and an egg over easy. To sop up the extra gravy, I ordered some cornbread. The food was absolutely delicious and my soul will leave renewed.
