Praised by patrons and local press, Ridley's Bakery Café crafts hearty sandwiches with quality ingredients on hand-sliced bread. Every morning, the eatery's bakers rise at 2:30 a.m. to watch their favorite infomercials and to prepare the shop's fresh bread, available in a half-dozen varieties, including asiago and sourdough. The menu satisfies sandwich devotees from all walks of life with vegetarian and low-fat options, such as the fat-free tuna-salad sandwich ($6.25). Teeth crunch through sliced cucumber, roasted red pepper, and lemon-herb dressing atop the turkey garden club ($6.50), while stomachs fill pastry vacancies with a rotating selection of savory 10-ounce muffins ($4.75), packed with herbs, seasonings, vegetables, and cheeses. Miniature explorers sail across the top of a 12-ounce bowl of creamy chicken-wild-rice soup ($3.35), occasionally docking at the edge of a bread bowl ($2 extra) or mistaking a piece of poultry for India.
Nature photographer Mike Moats deals exclusively in evocative and otherworldly up-close shots. His workshops can last anywhere from three hours to three days, and cover general image-making techniques, such as controlling depth of field, composition methods, and postshoot digital processing. Moats also teaches his students to think like photographers: lessons often cover selecting a subject in any season and working in natural light. With proper grounding in the theory and practice of shooting tiny subjects, macro-photographers will have plenty to shoot no matter where they live, unlike photographers who specialize in Leap Day lunar eclipses. :m]]
