Dinner with Friends in Nimes

Thanks to Luke!

I wanted to give a HUGE thanks to Luke, who manages our 24-hour customer support (support @ stuckincustoms.com). We get hundreds and hundreds of emails from customers that buy everything from the video photography course to the ebooks, and he is fantastic at helping people out… We just got this nice note from a customer, Patrice Ryan, and I asked if I could publish it as a way to publicly thank Luke!

“First of all, can I give you a gold star for customer service? I’m amazed you are still following up with me and appreciate this so much!”

Thanks again Luke! This operation would fall apart without you!

Meeting with Locals

If you are going to a new location, see if you can do anything to make friends with people that live there before you go. You may get an opportunity to spend time with them, visit their family, and see the sort of local stuff that is normally not seen by tourists. Obviously, because of this blog, I’ve got all sorts of interesting people to meet all over the world. But, if you see someone comment on here from a particular location, feel free to contact them (click on their name) and maybe you’ll find a little photo-friend to have an adventure with!

Daily Photo – Dinner with Friends in Nimes

The designer of the site here, Fabien Barral (see his site), took me to this wonderful little restaurant in Nimes for dinner. It was way off the beaten path, and we never would have found it… Plus, there’s also something very nice about sitting there with local people, talking about local politics, the economy, art, life, and everything.

Fabien is a great guy, and he’s become a great friend over the years. He just got finished redecorating a hotel in Paris, and I’ll try to get shots of that up soon.

    Cool looking place – would love to eat dinner there – some of the pictures on the wall are….quite interesting!! Glad you had fun!!

  • Patrick Ahles

    I doubt if you found it on your own, you dared entering the place! I mean, restaurant?

    Awesome pic, you captured the ambiance well!

  • Aman

    This place looks amazing! I mean – everything looks amazing on your photos but this looks like a place worth visiting for a relaxed evening.Would you mind sharing the name?

    Very interesting, but out of every thing photography has taught me is to some time take it all in and that includes the sky ,in this case the ceiling.That must be some art work up there and would love to look around.I can imagine myself on the couch looking up having a glass of fine wine and just study the figures in the painting. Just looking around would take half my time there.
    Lucky you.

    Couldn’t agree more! Since Trey’s visit to our farm in October last year we’ve kept in touch as much as possible (given how busy Trey is thats tough to do! Hehe…) and can’t wait to see him & his family again. through this blog I’ve also met many others on all corners of the globe that I can’t wait to meet in real life. You guys rock!

    Wow, the restaurant looks awesome! I want to see more of the ceiling! Any potential SiC fan travelling to Prague, feel free to contact me, we can grab a few drinks and make some art! :)

    Well, shucks – I doubt it would “fall apart,” but Trey’s mailbox would certainly be less full of my long-winded and sometimes crazy ideas. :) Thanks much – appreciate the shout-out.

    Anyway, if anyone ever has a layover or short trip in Philadelphia, I’ll be happy to take you around.

  • Gail in Montana

    Wow, what a neat place to eat, Trey!!! Looks so homey and comfy. The ceiling is so beautiful!!! Glad your friend in Nimes took you there. Thanks for taking us, also. Have a great Tuesday :-)

    Wonderful looking restaurant Trey – looks very relaxing and kinda ‘homely’ in a way… not that my home resembles anything like this mind, but you know what I mean – yeah! ;-)

  • http://justshootingmemories.com Daryl Clark

    Trey, beautiful photo and interesting restaurant. I absolutely agree that meeting with locals is the best way to find the best gems to explore. If you or anyone is ever in the Atlanta area, give me a shout.

    Thanks all!

    Adsolutley beatuiful shot Trey. And while I’m at it I’d like to also pass on my thanks to Luke. I sent in an email to let you know that I’ve been having trouble posting comments and much to my surprise I got a response back from Luke the next day. Seems my email address was landing in your spam folder and Luke “nspammed” me. Thanks again so much for your quick response.

  • Vicki Wilson

  • Andrea Boyle
