While waiting at a stop light in Chicago, I looked to my left and saw these two gentlemen sitting down to a meal at a restaurant. I was drawn in by the red paint, the stark white table cloths, their crisp suits, and the way their glasses and expressions worked in tandem. I grabbed my camera from off the seat next to me, made the exposure, then went on my way when the light changed.

Every year, my wife and I host a "big table sauce party" where we invite about 20 of our friends and family to come over and sit down at one big table. I make a huge cauldron of homemade spaghetti sauce and a mountain of pasta and we all just sit around and enjoy the evening.
As the night wore on, the wine was flowing very nicely. Here, our friend Charmaine (she of the "jeweler's hands") reaches for a bottle to pour one more glass.
