Ricoh GR black and white test drive

this is my first test drive of the Ricoh GR as an all-around, walk-around, street-snapping black and white camera. ISO settings are set at Auto (100-800) and all images are converted in Lightroom, using customized VSCO plugins (mainly HP5, Tri-X and Neopan 400). My first impressions are very, very positive:

World Class Cocktail Nights With Aristotelis Papadopoulos

Yet another magical night at the Mylos Terrace Cocktail Bar. Already known for its exquisite, high-quality cocktails (courtesy of bartender extraordinaire Dimitris Manglaris) and its wonderful atmosphere (courtesy of Yorgos Koutsounaris and the majestic views of Leros), the Mylos Terrace Cocktail Bar managed to surprise yet again, by hosting a three-day event with world-class bartender Aristotelis Papadopoulos, who offered us a wide array of mysterious and exotic creations such as the “unripe satsuma sour” cocktail, as well as many others created on the spot. Indeed, it was a wonderful experience, to have an accomplished bartender create unique cocktails according to your personal preferences, and then enjoying those cocktails in a beautiful bar with great music and good company!

P.S. Excuse the long post. I wanted to get as many shots in as possible, so the guys can pick and choose the ones they want for their own purposes.
