What Is Photography To You?

Hasselblad Aug What is photography to you? Does it change depending on the format you're using?

I try to shoot with film constantly and every time I get my pictures back from the photo store, they feel so much more precious than my digital snaps. I love the graininess of it, the unexpected purple hue, the sense that I photographed something well without the help of a computer telling me that I'm not exposing properly.

I didn't realize this but photography has become the thing I go to when I need a moment of quietness. When I'm feeling just a little bit too suffocated by people...work....life, I instinctively grab my camera and go for long walks.

And analog forces me to focus on a photo and let me just phase out my worries.

Colonie

Colonie Brunch at Colonie, 127 Atlantic Ave Brooklyn. Biscuit Benedict, Duck Hash, Grits, Bloody Marys, Coffee and Freshly Fried Doughnuts with Salty Caramel Custard.

I am definitely all for the brunch thing. It's huge in NYC and people wouldn't mind waiting 2hrs for a table, for a taste of delicious pancakes or poached eggs over biscuits. Though for those same reasons, I know many who hate brunch.

Which side do you belong to?

I have heard many great things about Colonie and it only took me few years plus after moving out of the neighborhood to go try it. The Bloody Mary was good, the Duck Hash was delicious but the killer dish was the Biscuit Benedict. Once you had this, you definitely can't have eggs Benedict with English muffins anymore.
