      Check out the L.A. Board and search for "perceptor". He's treated us to many more L.A. Chow photos - all of them gorgeous!

    2. Aahh yes, memories of my Gary Danko birthday celebration revisited...Perceptor - did you check out the restroom? The ladies' room was picture worthy - greys and violet colors with orchids and a fountain, very serene. Many thanks for your postings!

      1. fucking gorgeous! thank you for the meal by visualization. good for all us voyeurs. It is nice to see the desserts getting slightly more creative. when I went they were abomidable, considering the venue.
        I love that your photos captured the setting, which really makes everyone and everything look beautiful.

        1. Great pics. How in the hell did you get the lighting so nice? When I took pictures at GD, they looked like crap even after I doctored them up in Photo Album.

            when it is dark like Gary danko.. i set my aperture to about f2.1 and open up the shutter to about 1/10 second or longer.. then its pretty much hold your breath and dont move an inch.. to get the 1 pic thats good, i usually have to take MANY shots

              ........or bring a tripod.

              1. re: Rupert Gee

                a tripod can be a pain when the whole table is covered with dishes, as it often is. Also, less maneuverability.

                Thanks for the tips perceptor.
