Miki's student proves he's no stranger to pork.
Recently Miki Shimada dropped by Cafe Drake for a casual weeknight dinner (noodles with dried chile sauce, salmon croquettes and sauteed brocolli) and downloaded pics from her memory disc into Cafe Drake's laptop. We're immensely grateful, so much so we devoted this large post to the craft of Miki's photography. More than just a superb trained eye, Ms. Shimada manages to capture all the right moments in the most casual of ways - in documenting a social life, she hones in on some of the things we treasure most: fellowship over fabulous food, the inherent merriment of cocktails, our many animal friends and diffused lighting. Many, many thanks to Miki for these time capsule treasures.
