the pretzels always looks good and fresh until you bite into them and they taste like cardboard and then you curse yourself for spending three bucks for them because now you’re thirsty and even more unsatisfied than when you convinced yourself you really needed a pretzel and that the last pretzel you had was bad but that was just probably a fluke.

You’re such a talented photographer! Congrats on being freshly pressed :)
Love your photos in B/W. But I especially like the way you title them. It really adds to the whole experience of viewing them. Each one is it’s own little story that you give a snippet of and, yet, tells so much. Very nice job!
Agreed 100%!! :)
Great photo! And I totally understand that feeling of wanting a pretzel and then it tastes that blaaaah. :)
I agree, pretzels are very, very deceiving creatures.
The last pretzel I had was a wonderful, warm, buttery delight of which I still dream. The only place to get it is at a local mall. I avoid malls so it has been a long time. Maybe I need to make a special trip just for that buttery bit of heaven. Now you have me craving pretzels.
Lots and lots of cheese … Nice photo!
Love the angle and the caption. Nice work!
Hahaha so true! Although I’m in Philly…where there are fresh pretzels EVERYwhere. LOVE this photo…great work!
Great photo. When I was growing up in Philly, we had the BEST soft pretzels on the planet. Now, you can’t even get a good one there.
Amazing photo: I love it when people take pics that aren’t try-hard. And pretzels are strange, like you said. We all know they don’t taste very good but we all buy them now and then anyway. Weird.
Great blog :)
like the B & W photo
keep it up ^^,
I don’t know for pretzels from street vendors, but I love me a pretzel from the pretzel-maker in the mall!
I have some great pictures. If you would like to post, it could raise awareness of a “real” family. Just one family.
Gorgeous photo! And I dont think i’ve ever had a pretzel, and maybe now I wont – doesn’t sound like im missing out on much!
It has been several months ago, that my wife and I, and several friends made a pleasure trip to New York City for four days. I was born and raised in the city. It had been a long time since my return.
It was a wonderful experience, far removed from my memories as a child dealing with fear, gangs and zip guns to protect one’s self in going to school. The people were wonderful to me and my group in every way. The trip changed me forever.
super lovely photo! :)
Feeling like I was there on the sidewalk. Great photo.
Great photo! Great photographer!
pretzels are terrible. But this photo is beautiful and I agree with rtcrita: the captions on all your work make it larger than the sum of its parts.
Oh, and why is it that the pretzels on the street ALWAYS taste like hotdog?
cool photo..it goes great with your background :) Congrats on Freshly Pressed
so true.. I don’t know how many times I cursed myself, and the rest of the world because of this.
then i sing the The Cramps song ” Don’t eat stuff fron the sidewalk” , and feel a bit better .
the photo is the best.
I like this; the open space, the woman purposely looking away, the hopeful look of the vendor. It all works and makes one interested.
Best to just lick the salt off and throw away the dough wad. ;)
don’t forget that you ate the calories of that gross carboard pretzel!
yup yup yup
this is cute
The photo was nice. The B/W added an effect on the beauty of it. Keep it up! :)
You should come to Canada and try the Beaver Tails! They are great. That is an amazing photo.
oh but i love the tiny crispy pretzels that come in boxes… and your photo just captures the black and white of pretzels, uncertainty and snobbery. =)
Yes, giant pretzels are kind of dry. But when I’m hungry, they’re really good after I’ve eaten the last bite.
a very captivating photo,i like how it pulls everything in but makes it seperate.
Yes, like so much junk food. We get tempted then regret it after. It’s like the thought is always so much better thatn the thing.
Great Photo i love it!
Congrats, you are Freshly pressed! Nice photo
New York City- the greatest city in the world…as for pretzels.. never gotten the point of them really… dry tasteless bread twisted into a knot… why? lol…
Pretzels? What pretzels? Oh, those next to that hot chick. Sorry, I was focusing on the real reason you took the photo.
Coolness personified and photographed. Very nice.
that’s all i can say
I’m not a huge fan of pretzels, they always come too salty and then I have to scrap off the salt and they aren’t that fresh and then I’m disappointed I spent the money. But, I love your photo, very cool!
no! prezel are great! well, at least here in germany.
love the pic!!
congrats on being freshly pressed!!

Good Job on the photo’s. You really have a knack for photography , which I think is something you should pursue as a past time and hobby.

Wow, your street photography is really good. (:
FELLOW NEW*YORKER HERE…MOVED AWAY…;( ALWAYS MY HOME… LOVE LOVE LOVE YOUR SITE…WOOT WOOOOO…CREATIVE AND FUN…GREAT CAPTIONS…I am posting your link on my FB…;)
I love pretzels, but I hardly ever eat them. The honey-mustard ones are DE-lish! Yum.
When we were in Berlin, we were SURPRISED!!! to see the GIGANTIC variety sold here and there, everywhere! Wow! Segy and I could almost taste them from afar, but we were late boarding the subway, so we missed out on buying some. Still, I’ve always wondered how they tasted.
And then came the day… many years later… when I made some pretzels for my church CCE kids during Lent. Wow. They turned out gr-r-reat!
So, yeah. See what your post concocted in my pea brain?!!
Nice street capture.
Very good photographer! :o I like photography, wish I was as good as you. =]
thanks for your comment dude. i’m just having fun here taking shots. this was a happy accident i think of being in the right place at the right time!
Nice photo.. and.. i agree with you on that pretzel thing. I’m like that with pizza from trucks or sidewalk stores. :/
