Huckleberry’s Pastrami Sandwich.
Well, this is embarrassing! My last post said this upcoming post would center around my trip to the Bahamas with Josh & my family, but I can’t upload the video onto my Vimeo account because I reached my quota this week, so I’ll just have to wait until Saturday for it to refresh. Regardless, the next post will absolutely be an explosion of pictures from the Bahamas that your eyes will be beached out for the day. Hopefully you enjoy this picture food dump post. If it makes you hungry, mission accomplished.
Remember how I dabble in gardening & making terrariums? No? Well, I do, so I made an instructional video on how to make beach themed terrariums except filming with one hand & trying to plant with the other produced deplorable results. What do you do with a bunch of movie clips on how to make terrariums that are poorly focused, unstable, & nearly nauseating to watch due to the amount of instability? Why, you throw them into Lightroom, edit the heck out of the colors, slap on some downtempo song, & boom, you’ve got yourself something semi-watchable.
Beach Themed Terrariums
Growing up in Huntington Beach, I was well adapted to our non-existent weather & took up figure skating on the weekends. My ice rink friends & I would walk on over to Huckleberry’s Sandwiches right across the street after our lessons in the morning for lunch. I introduced Huckleberry’s to some of my high school friends & we’d go there &/or Fuji’s every so often for our off-campus lunches. It’s been a while since I’ve had a bite at either restaurant so I thought I’d revisit & ran into some high school friends.
On one of our study dates, I bought Josh a pastrami sandwich from Huckleberry’s while I satisfactorily munched on a veggie sandwich. I figured Josh would devour the pastrami sandwich & still be hungry so I also got tacos from Fuji’s, which is just a door down from Huckleberry’s. The first taco is a shrimp taco with avocado followed by an avocado taco (vegetarian friendly), & ending with a fish taco. Obviously these choices weren’t exactly quinoa, kale, greek yogurt, & goji berry, but we stayed awake to get our work done. Look, don’t think I’m trying to paint Josh as some food hording monstrosity, okay? I ate some of the tacos too. He didn’t eat everything, sheesh. Don’t give him those judgmental looks!
True Life: I’m a Food Hording Monstrosity
Here we have pictures of a salmon sushi burrito from Samurai Burrito that are poorly posed because I ran out of creativity.
One Month Later: Creativity Came Back
I really need to get a nice tea cloth to use for backdrops because paper towels just aren’t cutting it. These shots of the Galaxy Chirashi Cup from Mitsuwa were taken on my new Nikon D5300 aka Honey Boo Boo. I’m itching to photograph anything & everything these days to take Honey Boo Boo out for a spin!
CUCINA Enoteca with Juliana
Juliana & I caught up over lunch last Wednesday at CUCINA Enoteca. It was my first time & definitely won’t be my last. I just ate my leftovers yesterday & my taste buds were so happy. This was my attempt at taking Honey Boo Boo out for a spin. Still working on not sucking at overhead shots.

DAW, I should just make a blurbs sub-domain to collect memorable quotes from people. I know I’ve said this before, but I feel as though I have to repeat myself to remind myself & others that you just can’t give up or else you’ll never make any progress. Whether it’s your career, goals, ambitions, hobbies, whatever it is, just don’t give up. Unless of course, you’re trying to chase after some person who is never going to reciprocate your love, then you should probably give it a rest & find someone who’s trying to chase you down & not the other way around.
