Solarized photo. For months and I'd venture to say a little over a year, I have been trying this technique finally came up with this mash-up.
Edited using only Adobe Lightroom. Yes, only Lightroom. I am proud that I only used Lightroom because the program has it’s limitations unlike Photoshop where the possibilities are virtually endless. Don’t get me wrong I love Photoshop but there is a little pressure to perform, you know? Lightrooms sliders make results a bit more random and forces me to really conciser the few tools available.

Fresh fruits grocery on 5th ave between 49-50th streets. This is where all of the Puerto Rican sofito and pasteles ingredients are. I will be posting about pasteles very soon.
Why am I going to post about such a secret dish you ask? Well, I have come to realize that the world is changing. I had never learned how to make this traditional Puerto Rican dish and it pains me to know that my friends, cousins, aunts, uncles and moms never learned either. It is an art and it really is a group project. This past weekend I hosted the inaugural Pastele Making Party. It was a smash success. The best part, we were not all Puerto Rican. In fact, I dare say Puerto Ricans were the minority, which is why I will be posting about the pastele making. If we all begin to look for these ingredients, they will always be available.

No one waiting to vote at this Sunset Park Brooklyn branch (PS169). There is almost never a line; weird because this school has a ridiculous over crowding issue. "Overcrowding has pushed some classes into the halls." - quote from InsideSchools.org
Get out and vote folks! The time is now.
