u]Photographer’s Notes[/u]
Feeling silly tonight … a feeling brought on by a couple of Margaritas at our favorite Mexican restaurant. Did the QR code before we left. (Wonder how many of our dear DPC folks will decode it?) Slapped it on the glass and held in place with condensation on the glass. And finally shot it with my iPhone 4.

There is no such place as Digital Drinks, but Redmond is the home of Microsoft. And I can certainly imagine a local watering hole with this name. And I can imagine a QR Code logo for the joint. I'd drink there - how about you?

Okay, I know it's over the top. I know the QR code should be straighter. But it looks like it was slapped on by a waiter with too many tables and not enough tips. I know the colors are nuclear. I know there's a lot of noise in this. Still, the "I know's" seem to add up okay. And for all that, I like it anyway.

It's unlike what I normally shoot. Maybe I'm breaking out.
