I was really enjoying my cocktails at Esta Noche the other day. I had a pretty long day and a friend and I decided to go for some Mexican food in the Mission. We thought we’d stop in at Esta Noche for a shot of Patron Tequila Silver. My favorite tequila. We did a round of shots and noticed that they had fresh strawberry margaritas for 3.75 for their Happy Hour. So we ordered those as well. We were really enjoying ourselves. It was fun and the strawberry margaritas were so tasty. For some reason they tasted really healthy like a Jamba Juice. LOL!
Well since I always carry my camera everywhere I love to take photos of everyplace that I go to. The reason is I love to blog about it all. One of the places that I had never photographed was Esta Noche. I was enjoying the evening and snapping pics. I snapped several just so that I could post here. I took several and made sure no one ended up in my pic and if they did they were blurry and the background was in focus. I love shots of interiors of restaurants or bars as they turn out really dramatic with the lights and neon and all.
Suddenly right before we were going to leave someone, a guy that was dressed in a dark suit looking like he stepped off of Martin Scorsese mafia film (in a rude pissed off manner) approached me and rudely told me that if I took anymore photos that he would take my camera away. WHY? Can he really take my camera? Was he going to force me down and steal the camera away?
If I can see it I can take a picture of it right? Even if it’s a private or public property? I believe that’s correct right? What are photographers rights???
Well boo to you whatever the heck your name was at Esta Noche that told me I can’t take pictures. I don’t think I’ll be stopping in for those yummy strawberry margaritas anymore. In fact I wont recommend it and don’t recommend anyone visit Esta Noche. If you do and you take pictures in their establishment you might have your camera snapped up!
See below the types of pictures I was taking at Esta Noche. Was I breaking any laws? I don’t think so!
Here are some flashback photos I shot from 2008 at the annual Delores Park Hunky Jesus Contest. This is always fun to go to this if you are around on Easter as you get to watch this fun event (Hunky Jesus Contest) and experience the bonnet contest. That’s always fun too!
The event takes place every Easter in Delores Park. Go check it out this year if you are around. To experience the photos below larger just click each pic and they will enlarge!
The event happens at 566 Delores Street:
And the event starts at:
11 am to noon: Children’s Easter
Noon to 2pm: Live Entertainment
1pm: Bonnet Contest
3:40pm: Hunky Jesus Contest
Some more flashback pictures from last years Easter Sunday at Delores Park Hunky Jesus and Easter Bonnet festivities.
I love this shot of the interior of Foreign Cinema. It almost doesn’t look like Foreign Cinema but it certainly is Foreign Cinema. I shot this very early on an evening during the week and it had been quite some time since I had been there. I think the last time was 2000 so it was 8 years or so.
Anyway I do like the place and the food and cocktails are awesome! It’s just so out of the way. Darn!
One of the great classic old theaters on Mission Street left to decay and rust away. It’s sad to see these beautiful old theaters and nothing has been done to save them unfortunately. I wish there was someway to save these theaters and use them for something that would prevent from falling into the same situation that it is in.
I wanted to photograph the El Capitan Theater so that I can study the beautiful architecture and design of this beautiful building.
I can only imagine back in the day how this theater was in operation. Takes me back!
