Chef Monochrome


Rick, the owner and chef at Matt & Mike's Eatery, seen cooking through the chrome-rimmed serving window at his new location off Michigan Ave./Highway M60 in Three Rivers. Matt and Mike's is named for his sons, and was downtown for 25 years. A boutique baby store now occupies his old location, and his new address is 103 South Lincoln Avenue. Just in case you were looking.

This was my favorite b/w picture this week. Others I took were more stark and contrasty, but I think this has plenty going on.

To see more of the world in monochrome, just click over to The Monochrome Weekend, presented by Aileni.

The black and white and hint of human is nice to see. I admire it and some of my work in b&W is on my Sendai-shi blog. I got to get back to it.

Thanks for the visit and comment.

Overall, a fascinating photo. I like the way you catch just a glimpse of his eyes, but enough to see a certain concentration on what he's doing...

Looks like a 'joint.' I love joints!

Nice I must admit that at first I thought it was a cabbage on a desk, but then I discovered that I was terribly wrong :-)

Excellent "portrait" of sorts.

This is a great shot! It reminds me a little bit of the neighbor character on the old show Home Improvement where they only showed his eyes over the fence.

It gives a very different and interesting viewpoint.

I like this one, too. It's an everyday sight that we tend to take for granted, but when it's captured like this, it makes it very special.
