Week 48, Day 331, March 26, 2010, Garbage Plate

My youngest son and I traveled to Rochester to attend a visitation of RIT, the college that he will attend next fall.  My other son and his fiance also live in Rochester.  They took us to Nick Tahou Hots for Rochester's original Garbage Plate.  The Food Channel gives an excellent history of the place.

Everybody, except me, had the 2 cheese burger Garbage Plate.  These consisted of macaroni salad, home fries, 2 cheese burgers, mustard, onions, and a special sauce.  Being a vegetarian, I decided to try the veggie version.  Instead of hamburgers I had veggie burgers, and no special sauce on mine. (The special sauce also contains meat.)

The atmosphere is this old building is very interesting, and is a must.  The owner has an interesting sense of humor, and there is a lot of banter between the customers, and the owner.  I highly recommend it.

Needless to say, I couldn't finish my garbage plate.

Lessons Learned:
  • I have to be quicker with my camera settings when I'm photographing people.  It's not polite to keep people waiting while I'm attempting to take a photo.
  • Cropping was useful.  The edge of this plate had some food grease on it.  The photo looks much better with the grease removed.  The food is also tastier than it looks.
 Photo details: Exposure time 1/25 sec, Aperture f/1.8, ISO 400, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 82mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, handheld.
