I recently bought a new lens for my camera. I decided to buy the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8g for macro food shots. Based on the research i did it was the best lens for macro with a decent price to quality ratio. Here are the first couple of shots i took. Really excited to start using it more!!
On my last trip to Miami I managed to squeeze in a session at Ski Rixen. It’s a bit of a drive from Miami to Deerfield but it’s worth it. Located on a little lagoon of water sits a very well run cable park to practice your wake/kite tricks if there’s no wind or boat available. Cable parks are great to practice your edging and rotation to toe-side and back since there is no chop. If this is your first time hearing about a cable park watch this video to see how it works.
I visited Ski Rixen in the middle of the day when there weren’t many riders out which is great so I didn’t have to stop too often. Although there weren’t many people, the select few were very skilled so i decided to take out my camera and shoot some photos! If you want to see a first person view of the ramps and area check this video out.
I love visiting farmers markets when I travel to different cities. Each of them has its own unique charm and character. The Saturday/Sunday morning farmers market in Le Mans has a vast amount of produce, seafood, and vegetables to choose from. With a very rustic feel everything is sold outdoors from tables and trucks.
The farmers market is located in central Le Mans about a 15 minute walk from the outskirts of Vieux Mans. I took many photos of the market focusing on the produce, meats, and people of the market. In Part 1 I am covering just the produce. I love the colours and the vibrancy of all the different fruits and vegetables.The number of different mushrooms available blew my mind – especially the chanterelles!!!
If you would like to see more photos of the market check out this amazing post about a fellow bloggers experience at one of Le Mans farmers markets.
More pictures after the jump!

Penne alla Puttanesca literal translation is “penne a la whore”. Who could resist such an interesting dish. This recipe is one of my favourite “make ahead” dishes that I can eat throughout the week since it gets better day after day. The ingredients are typical of Southern Italian cuisine: tomatoes, olive oil, capers, anchovies, and garlic.
