Last weekend, the boo and I were at the 2013 Foodie Fest, organized by Food Bites at Publika. Being absolute foodies, of course we were there for the food, but mostly we just wanted to wield our camera a bit and stalk some candid street photos.
There were quite a few stalls set up, mainly indie food vendors. My favourite of the day was The Crab Factory, which served Louisiana-style seafood (shrimp and crawfish)! They will be opening up a restaurant somewhere in January at SS2 and I can’t wait. Our favourite Crumbs that closed earlier this year (now Yay, Sammich!) also ran a stall there, but sadly we ended up too stuffed to have any of the Salted Caramel Brownie we loved so much. The boo’s pick of the day was the beef wrap by Las Vacas, and he’s pretty hyped up to go to the restaurant to try their other stuff.
There were hits and misses at the fest (more misses than hits to be honest but maybe we went for all the wrong food), but I had a great time shooting paparazzi style with the 100mm f2.8L macro which I just got back a week or so ago. I am so in love with the sharpness and colour rendition of this lens that I never want to be parted with it! Except the weight is a little hard to manage… maybe it really is time to invest in a good quality backpack or camera bag.
