  • Weekend Reflections — Rosie’s Cantina


  1. I was waiting to see if you were going to post this. I saw it come up in flickr. This is wonderful. I love the colors in this. Well done Q

    1. Violet, yes, we chose the place because it was packed, and if it is packed, it must have good food yes? [shakes head] Not necessarily, we learned.

    1. Susan — I was trying very hard to get the ambiance. I was rather disappointed at the amount of light in the photo — that mirror supplied more to the camera than it did to my eyes.

    1. Melli — they don’t exactly have “bad” food, but we didn’t classify it good. Hawaiians — owing to sugar cane, pineapple, bananas and coconuts being their primary crops (none of them native, btw) — have a strong inclination for sweet foods and a disinclination for spicy foods, so the Mexican restaurants here aren’t what I’m used to!

  2. hI Quilly. I agree with Susan at Stony River. I would also like to add , look at the moon face on the right then look a bit further right, slightly down and youll see the sun on the wall too. That is pretty cool. 🙂

    1. James — I shouldn’t admit this, but I wasn’t thinking “reflection” when I took this photo. I was going for the ambiance and that glowing wall was my focal point; however, as my photo archives will attest, the moon & wall glow alone appeared quite boring, so I changed my angle of focus, added the mirror, and tada!

    1. Barbara — when I took the photo I thought I’d be much less pleased with the angle, but I didn’t have much choice. I don’t think the people in the table next to us would have taken kindly to my rearranging them so I could get a better shot. (Never know though and I didn’t ask.)

    1. Polona — thank you. It was a hit-n-miss sort of shot. I couldn’t do what I wanted to, so I settled for this and was quite pleasantly surprised.

  3. Thanks for the visit, Quilly, I’m glad my pictures tug at you. That’s a nice reflection you got there, too bad the food wasn’t as good as it might have been.

    1. Church Lady — for all I know the anonymous lady could be Rosie. And I took this pic awhile back when Amoeba’s beard was still a fledgling.
