I’m the first to admit that my budding interest in photography can’t be considered as anything more than a amateur hobby, but it’s trips like a weekend in NYC that make me really wish my skills were more impressive. Of course, lugging around a somewhat expensive SLR camera through the streets of the city the whole time has some inherent drawbacks as well. Especially if you’re prone to dropping things and drinking during the day.
If you’re really looking for some top notch photography around NY, the blue hour has quickly become one of my favorite photo blogs. Brian has a great eye for capturing shots that are a smaller part of the whole and he knows how to make the most of his light. Based out of Brooklyn, his pics make you feel like your walking the streets of his neighborhood, which is a lot harder to do than you would imagine.
So until my skills improve, here’s a sliver of what I saw while visiting the big apple..
“A question in your nerves is lit
Yet you know there is no answer fit to satisfy
Insure you not to quit
To keep it in your mind and not fergit
That it is not he or she or them or it
That you belong to”
– It’s Alright Ma
After a little hiatus, AMF is back in action with a new look and a few new features. What’s new?
- The Nuts and Bolts section is well on its way to being a useful resource to those quick, how-to questions.
- FINALLY got my new camera in so image quality will be considerable better from here on out. I also fulfilled a life long dream of owning a professional camera despite me asking for one since I was 14. Yeah Mom.. 14, you know this to be true.
- New site layout is up and running after countless hours pathetically working my way through piles of HTML code. Still pretty simple, but looks damn nifty if I say so myself.
Also, it seems fitting that AMF jumps back into it on Easter Day. Fitting because while the phrase is taken from Hemingway’s Collection of short stories about his life in Paris, the phrase actually has origins rooted in the roving holiday. “A moveable feast” references the Easter day feast that always shifts based on when the 2nd Sunday every April occurs. This is what the Interwebs tells me anyway. It could be bullshit.
Bottom line, peruse the new layout, more improvements to come, and stay hungry AMF fans.
Now I know it’s sacralege to even infer ribs made in the oven and not over indirect wood burning heat are comparable in any way. I wouldn’t argue that. Ten years growing up in South Carolina was a sound education for anyone interested in BBQ. But I will say that any ribs slow cooked after being rubbed all over with a variety of spices coated with a dash of your favorite BBQ sauce is still one of the most savory and delisious meals you can make whether it come out of your oven, off your grill, or from a home made fire pit! A little planning and there’s no excuse not to play with some ribs.
I’ve never made ribs before, but if you have a constant heat source and a few basic spices you can make yourself some fall off the bone deliciousness that you’ll want to tear apart with your bare hands and savor every ounce of flavor. This may be my new favorite cut of meat to play with. The only draw back is the need to prep and the 3 hour cooking time. But other than that it’s pretty hard to mess up. Plenty of recipes sure to come, but for now, what I did yesterday afternoon..
