I took this picture on the subway yesterday on my way to Murray’s. This guy was standing next to me and my camera was all packed up in my bag, but I saw his camera and just had to snag a photo. I was going to ask his permission first, but he was listening to his ipod and was totally oblivious to me checking him out… so I just went ahead. I only had time for one shot before he got off the subway, but I got exactly what I wanted! I looked up the model – Canon FTb and it was manufactured in 1971! Cool.
On another note, Adam and I had a scrumptious brunch this morning with our friends Dave & Lucy at Northern Spy Food Co. on 12th between A & B. I had heard good things and boy… we were NOT disappointed! I ordered the slow-whisked scrambled eggs with house-made sausage and grilled potato & rosemary bread. Adam ordered the Corn Beef Hash with Heritage beef brisket and poached eggs. Both dishes were amazing – the sausage was TO DIE FOR – like a big juicy sausage meatball – super flavorful!! We also split a kale (shredded) salad with clothbound cheddar, sweet potato (though I think they served it to us with turnips today instead) and almonds. This was also delicious – the first time I’ve ever really swooned over kale! It is an adorable and cozy little place and I am definitely excited to go back for dinner (or brunch again).
And finally – here is photo I took of a cheese called Capricious. It is an aged goat cheese from Achadinha Goat Cheese Company in Sonoma County and apparently, it is pretty hard to come by. It is a crazy looking cheese! I tried it at Murray’s yesterday and I liked it – it reminded me of a goat cheese version of a parmagiano.
Adam and I are taking off tomorrow morning for Sonoma (perhaps a visit to above cheese maker is in order), so my photos for the next week will have a little west coast flave! Of course, I’m hauling my laptop & camera with me… in fact, this is my first trip with my laptop in tow. We’re growing very attached.
