Half the fun of local business assignments is getting to meet and chat with the various owners, managers, waiters, or even curious customers. This shot was from Pho Tau Bay in Gretna. Honestly, the most memorable part of the shoot wasn't getting to eat the good food afterward, nor was it the patient waitress showing me what to do with Vietnamese style coffee for the millionth time. I have a distinct memory of the owner/manager resembling a damn good Vietnamese-American Elvis impersonator. Maybe it was the sideburns or just his cool mannerisms, but now I really want to go back and see if he'll give me an "uh huh."
