For photography, I use a Canon 6D
with a 24-70mm lens
as a good all around lens. I also have a Sony A6000
that I carry around with me a lot because it is smaller and lighter. I also cannot live without Adobe Lightroom
for viewing, organizing and editing photos. I bring photos into Photoshop
if I need to edit more heavily.
Favorite eats around Asia
I’m traveling around Asia as I write this and when I travel, everything is planned around eating. Here are some of my favorites so far:
is the tiniest, cutest bagel shop tucked away in the Yanaka neighborhood of Tokyo. They make Montreal style bagels with pockets of sweet red bean filling folded in. My favorite was the black sesame bagel.
is a Filipino restaurant in the Philippines, serving homestyle comfort food. Their sinigang sa bayabas has become my favorite rendition of this Filipino sour soup. It is made with guava and is not shy on the fruitiness but it balances the sourness so well. I could have had the whole pot!
Taiwanese sandwiches with some combination of ham, cheese, egg, cucumber, mayo and always always always with rou song (pork floss) is a favorite comfort food whenever I visit. Its made with this really soft, white bread and looks like a tall layered sandwich. You can get it at bakeries and there are really good versions even at convenience stores.
Favorite eats in Michigan
When I’m back home in Michigan, my favorite coffee is at Strange Matter Coffee
in Lansing and if you ever find yourself in Detroit, a cocktail and the fresh potato chips topped with white cheddar, bacon and scallions are a must at Wright and Company
