Desert Rose

I shot stills last weekend for the Desert Rose restaurant here in Los Feliz. The pictures were ultimately used for their new website created by my friend Jaimie, a talented artist and web builder. I wanted to create images that had a flow and motion to them. It wasn't all work, Donna and I got a chance to enjoy dinner. We highly recommend it. Great food, relaxing outdoor courtyard, full bar. What's not to like? Below are a few of my favorite images from the evening. Check out the completed site HERE.
