Winter City Nights

The back of Social

A shot of the rear entrance of Social, a restau­rant I’ve only dined in once, but have passed by, wish­ing I was inside, many times. I like how the mood in the shot is warm, against the implied cold from the Christmas lights. One could sit here at any time of year and soak up the seren­i­ty, where a song by Sigur Rós (at night, when it’s com­fort­ably crowd­ed) is as rel­e­vant as a song by Edith Piaff (par­tic­u­lar­ly in the fall, when the skies are grey) is as rel­e­vant as a song by Iron And Wine (dur­ing the ear­ly days of sum­mer, when it’s still cool in the evening).


  1. That place looks nice man, You should vis­it more often.

  2. What a beau­ti­ful set­ting. Was the pic­ture tak­en after hours or is it nor­mal­ly that still?

  3. Actually, the pic­ture was tak­en at about 5:30 pm. Normally it’s a lit­tle more busy, but that was the day that Bush was in Canada. Everyone seemed to be ral­ly­ing against him instead of walk­ing around the usu­al places.
