Eye Candy Friday | An Evening in the Garden.

Karen, Lydia, me
Yesterday evening, my sister Karen and sister-in-law Lydia joined me for Cocktails in the Garden. It was our first time attending the event (which is held weekly during the summer), and it might be my new favorite Thursday evening activity!

Lydia and I arrived a little before 5 - just in time to get in a few photos before the skies opened up.



Thankfully the restaurant was happy to accommodate us a little early.

Karen joined us and we enjoyed a delightful bottle of rosé along with the cheese and charcuterie plates. I didn't take any photos of the food, but here's the skyline view from our table on the (covered) rooftop.

By the time we finished dinner, the rain had stopped; it turned out to be a lovely evening.




We wandered around and had as much fun looking at the garden as the people!

I love using Waterlogue for "street scenes"!
I took my camera bag with all three lenses, not sure what I'd want. I started with the 50mm and switched to the 24mm after dinner. A few of these photos, including the selfie of the three of us, are from my phone. I'm starting to feel a lot more comfortable behind the camera which is a good thing - there are only two more Fridays before the trip!

Wishing y'all a wonderful weekend!

A chance to practice with your camera, the company of lovely family members, wine, food, people watching, and garden wandering sounds like wonderful fun! I love the frogs and the reflection photo!

That sounds like such a fun night! I'm glad you're getting comfortable with the big camera, it will make things much easier for you on the trip. So exciting that's it's almost here!
