A photograph is worth a hell of a lot more than a thousand words…

Old Train Station

clarasloresWell, it isn’t a train station anymore, but it is a cooler title than restaurant…which is what this old train station is now.

Clara’s on the River is one of the better restaurants downtown. It is a nice thing to say, but frankly doesn’t mean much as their simply aren’t that many restaurants downtown. If you count fast food like Subway and Schlotzki’s there are about 7 or 8…which I suppose is a lot considering the size of Battle Creek.

Clara’s, Arcadia Brewery, and the BiCi Bristo probably have the best food and service. Clara’s has the largest menu and is the most reasonably priced, and during the summer time you can sit outside on the river and people watch while you eat. Their Sunday brunch the cat’s ass…all you can eat for about 5 hours….I haven’t made it the full 5 hours, but I’m trying.

I’m still on my long exposure kick. I’ve been there before, but this time I am limited to doing it at night since I still have yet to replace my netural density filters after my camera gear was stolen. I’ve replaced just about everything else, but I still have yet to replace all of my filters. ¬†I do have a circular polarizer that adds 3 stops of exposure, but I need to get my paws on some ND filters, too.

This one was f/22 for about 4 minutes.
