Bastille Day 2012 – A Tale Of Two Berkeley Institutions – Chez Panisse and Looking Glass Photo

by Ira Serkes on July 14, 2012

Be sure to visit Chez Panisse at 1517 Shattuck in Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto  – they put out the red, white & blue banners … and the garland of garlic

I buy my camera gear at Looking Glass Photo … what’s how I was able to create this photo one evening.


And also today at Looking Glass Photo – 2848 Telegraph Avenue – “The Spectacular Tent Event” from 10 am to 5 pm.

Jenny Sampson was taking tintypes last year … and I asked her to do one of me.  It’s a long exposure, so not my usual smiling face, but I thought it brought out some interesting characteristics (and the grey strands in my beard)
