{Silent Sunday: Bellocq}

On our way to Bellocq, Maggie (of Eat Boutique) and I were talking about what to expect from our trip.  And, to be honest, we didn’t know what we were going into.  Would the lighting be any good?  Would there be anything interesting to take pictures of?  As soon as we walked into their store, both of those questions were immediately answered.  Yes.  Definitely.  I spent the next hour taking picture after picture of all the wonderful little details that make the Bellocq storefront so special.

I won’t go into too much about what Bellocq does (and they do it so very well).  Instead, I’m going to direct you to this piece from Eat Boutique.  Maggie describes it perfectly and I hope I did them justice and was able to capture the atmosphere.

    MikeVFMK - What a lovely place! There is one particular tea shop in Toronto that I am rather fond of but even it lacks some of the charm of this place. Beautiful shots, Brian!ReplyCancel

    Rosie @ Sweetapolita - Wow! I would say you certainly captured the essence of Bellocq, and what a gorgeous spot. Brian, your photos are just incredible! My favourites are images 1, 5 and 8–unreal. But, truly, every image is beautiful. Love the light too!ReplyCancel

    Amanda - Is it weird that I almost felt like I could spell your pictures?

    Yes. That is weird.

    Sneh | Cook Republic - I can see why you wanted to post this one a day early :-). There is a quiet beauty about your shots today. Tea parlours are so quaint, so comforting in their crammed corners and exotic wares. We have one here where I live, it is called T2 and if you ever come visiting, I’ll take you there. Just your cup of tea, me thinks!ReplyCancel
