The Girls at Sebago

The Girls

I enjoy eating out and I’ve done a lot of it since taking this job as a flight attendant, as my increased girth shows it. This image was taken while in Portland, ME at a restaurant called Sabago. Sebago is a brewery and restaurant with 4 locations and have a fifth one coming soon. I went to the one in Scarborough near the Maine Mall where these beautiful young ladies met me at the door with their wonderful smiles. With my camera always around me neck they asked if I was a photographer, I answered yes and of course needed to prove it.  They moved in close together while I shot this at 1/13th second at ISO 3200, handheld.

And, what was the restaurant experience like? Well, my waiters name was Ben, did a great job and earned a substantial tip from this poor man. The food was awesome. I splurged and ordered the evening special:  shrimp and scallops in a creamy red/white sauce with mashed potatoes and glazed carrots.  I also added a cup of clam chowder. Almost licked the sauce off the plate but kept my cool and didn’t embarrass myself.  Needless to say I had no room for dessert. But, I can go back for that.

  1. I hope you asked one of them for their number. 🙂

    No, no, no – not that – so you can send them this very nice picture.

    • I was glad to get a photo. They actually were quite busy, the restaurant needed 3 hostesses to handle the business. And, they are definitely waaayy to young for this man. 🙂

  2. I enjoy micro breweries… love to taste new kinds of beer. These beautiful smiling faces are certainly providing a warm welcome for you!

    • I heard the only beers they offer are theirs so you would probably have enjoyed yourself. As I’m no longer look up at the bottom of beer bottles I did not try any. However friends tell me they are pretty good. I did enjoy my meal!!!! Stay warm!

  3. With such warm and friendly greetings at the front door it’s no wonder the place is packed.

  4. It’s a wonderful image and the craftsman in me is floored by your ability to capture a 13th of a second with a steady hand. Well done!

    • I was leaning against a wall with my arms against my chest for support. Out of 3 images this is the only one where one of them was not moving.

    • They were standing at a counter. Just under the ledge was a light. They had a lexan type board on the counter with the layout of the restaurant for seating patrons. It provided the light and actually I missed the exposure and blew the highlights.
