Pasta, Boiling

Original, from the Nikon... cropped slightly.

Now, on to the 'LittlePhoto' app on my phone... used the 'Instant Film' effect.

Now we send it to Instagram, which forces me to crop to a square. And the 'X-pro' filter is applied. At least, I think that was the one. 

I like them all for different reasons. 

I wish I could say that the meal was as good as the photos. It was not.

I attended the 2012 LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph in Charlottesville, VA last week. What I enjoy most about this event is listening to the featured photographers talk about their photos and how they came to each of their projects. If there were only static exhibits, I wouldn't bother going. For me, the dialogue is what inspires and excites me.

The thing that strikes me every time I attend one of these events is the number of cameras. Everyone has at least one and the manufacturers and models are across the board. I think there are more Leicas than you might see among the general public, but other than that every camera make is represented.

And eating breakfast a couple of tables away from someone like Sam Abell is kind of cool too.
