The beautiful new restaurant called Flow has just opened on Main Street in Mendocino. A fantastic view of Mendocino Bay and the Pacific Ocean are available from this second story venue near the Mendocino Hotel. I was hired to take a few promotional shots for a magazine. Below are my favorites.

It happened to be a colorful sunset, so I took advantage of it, working quickly to catch the light. Inside the soft lights create an inviting glow. I love inside/outside photos!
Flow has a delicious selection of small plates to enjoy. Here are a sampling of them.
As for the portrait of the bartender, it took some concentration for her to set the orange peel on fire for that tiny split second when I took the picture and could catch the drama of the flame. We managed to do it when I said "One! Two! Three!" ... and on three I clicked the shutter release, and the bartender lit the citrus peel!
