Happy Birthday Victoria!


Voila, Philadelphia cheesesteak extraordinaire!

This week's theme is people. I used to avoid taking pictures of people but now I like to. It's fun trying to capture them at the right moment.
-To my dear wife Vicki, you are twice as old as you were the first time we celebrated your birthday as a married couple and I love you twice as much. You can have dinner anywhere you want and it doesn't have to be a cheeseteak.

What a wonderful picture. Very nice and the cheesesteak looks awesome. I never had a real one like that :) And you are such a sweet man. How nice what you said to and about Vicki. Hau`oli La Hanau Vicki. I hope you have a wonderful Birthday. Much aloha :) TBK

Such a natural looking capture! And, that sandwich looks darn good! I might choose to have my birthday dinner right there...do they have wine? Ha

You said, "this week's theme is people." I am confused...is it a meme or just your own theme for the week?

I find people pictures to be so interesting, this one is really excellent. Now I'm craving food!

Happy Birthday Vicki!
& a beautiful sentiment for your wife James!.
this is a great photo too. I take so few photos of people I look through my blog posts and wonder, where have all the Long Islanders gone?
Your photo inspires me...

Nicole said...

Beautiful Portrait!
You def.caught him at the right moment.
And if your wife doesn't take the Cheese steak, I take it ;)

Happy belated birthday to her!

Aw, that's so sweet, James. I hope you and your wife share a very special celebration.

I'm constantly asked what i miss most from 'home.' I used to say 'nothing.' But you just reminded me...Philly cheesesteaks (esp Pat's). Oh, and scrapple! Great photo, James, it brings back a lot of good memories! ;)

Lovely post. If you dine out, may I have the cheesesteak?

As a week theme, the picture is simply great and strong( even if I prefer not to say what I think about the food this man is showing...Ü)
for a birthday, your words are lovely, but don't match with the picture! Ü
Anyway, please tell Vicky that she has some birthday wishes from France, and lot of hugs to share with "she knows who"...
joyeux anniversaire!

Sweet :)

This is a great shot James. But no Pat's? (jk) I think you captured him very well. And you captured that steak beautifully, I'm salivating! Happy Birthday to Vicki and have a great week. Kathy

Happy birthday, Vicki!
I'm not much for meat anymore, but that Philly cheese steak sandwich sure looks yummmy!

Have a nice day both of you...
Where would you put the candles if you had to celebrate with a sandwich?

Matty said...

Mr. Romantic.

Happy Birthday to Vicki.

Cheryl said...

Yummy. I like your "people photo". And a most wonderful Happy Birthday to your wife!

Lois said...

I have eaten at Jim's Steaks and their cheesesteak sandwiches are so good! Nice shot James.

Bon anniversaire Vicki ! Looks yummy!

Happy Birthday to Victoria!

Yes, it looks very delicious.
Though simple, a lot is expressed.
I like this work.

John said...

That's a real good shot, James. Glad to see you got hooked on 'people'. No way I could eat a roll that size!

Owen said...

Oh wow, that photo is giving me a serious case of the Munchies !!! Cruel and Unusual !!! Foul !!! Not fair ! I want one ! Bad James !!!

Listen, if Vicki doesn't want it, maybe you could wrap up real well and FedEx it over here to France ??? I promise I would eat every last crumb !

And the icing on the cake, is my Word Verification is : "hogey" ... now how is that for adding to my aggrieved state of seriously needing a cheesesteak or a good hoagie ???

Carol said...

Nice shot! This is perfect in B&W! Happy B-day to your Vicki...

Cezar and Léia said...

Happy Birthday to the birthday girl!

chrome3d said...

Hard at work. You are really bold to go out there to take photos like this.

Woody said...

Great Photo James, Happy Birthday Vicki! Hope you enjoyed it!

Sistertex said...

Weird, I could have sworn I commented on this post! Shucks it isn't here.

Vicki - happy birthday - late now I know...sorry!

James I was interested in knowing if you ask people if you can take their photos before you do it, or if you just take them and they are fine with it?

I am just curious because I am always such a chicken to take people's photos, but would love to because I find them all so interesting.
