Dangerously delivered dinner

Sometimes, and especially at this time of year, whether it be due to too much booze, the bad weather, or basically not being able to be bothered, having a decent meal delivered is an equally decent idea.

    Ahhh, the famed Honda Super Cub if I’m not mistaken. 60m sold and its still going strong!

    I used a Nikkor 85mm f/1.4D AF for those pictures il sangria. I haven’t had it long, but whilst it was a bit pricey, it’s well worth the money.
