I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! I did. This is one of my favorite holidays. Just food, friends, family, and fun (and drinks).
Here’s a little peek at my day (all iphone photos)…
This guy is a vegan.. but he smokes an awesome brisket.
Homemade potato chips
I was told this is a tomahawk, not an axe..
Earlier this year, I popped over to Foreign & Domestic to shoot some behind the scenes photos for them of prep work in the kitchen. They have an open kitchen anyways, so it was fun to hang around by the counter and watch the chefs work their magic. I love that time in a restaurant before there are any diners in, and there is the hustle of getting everything done before opening time. It also reminds me of how much time and care goes into each dish. Those babies aren’t thrown together, it takes a lot of melding of flavors, and getting everything just right.
Here are a few photos, you can see more on their website!
A while back, a great restaurant closed. SPIN Modern Thai.
As I continue to mourn the loss of this yummy restaurant, I share with you some photos I took for Citygram that sadly never got to be published due to the closing of the restaurant.
Here’s a few iphone photos from this week:
I ate at Kerbey Lane, Phil’s Icehouse, had a drink at the Tigress, ate a churro from Costco, and made pasta with freshly-picked tomatoes and basil. A delicious week!
Recently my friend Chris was profiled on Leela Cyd’s amazing blog, Tea Cup Tea. I’ve been following Leela’s work for a long time, and when Chris asked me to take photos for the post, I jumped at the chance! Head on over, and hear what Chris has to say about tea. And yes, Leela’s post is from April. That’s how behind on posting about things I am. :(
Last week, my friend Chris officially launched his newest project – Citygram. When he first approached me about being a part of the magazine and taking photos for it, I was excited. And then I was completely blown away once he showed me the sample he had put together. It’s one of the first truly interactive, made for tablet magazines out there that I’ve seen. And it’s amazing. The technology is one thing, but the content is even better. He’s gathered some really fantastic contributors, from Tolly Moseley to Jess Simpson. And this first issue even has a column from Joy the Baker!
