I was out of town on a business trip this past week in D.C. and upon returning home, Brandon had a little surprise for me: the Canon 50mm f 1/4 lens (he also did all the housework, both of which make me want to shout Husband of the Year!). We have a landscape lens, a 100mm macro lens and we just sold our stock lens that came with my T3i, so a 50mm was a good in-between lens. It is supposed to be great for food shots and portraits - my favorite type of photos.
Since I desperately wanted to try out the lens, we decided to visit Moveable Feast in San Jose. Moveable Feast is basically a food truck rally that is held every Friday evening and Saturday midday. We've never been and were super impressed by the selection, price, and quality of the food.
See for yourself. [p.s. I still have some learning to do with the lens, but I love it so far! The photos turned out super sharp and crisp.]
I was warned that the lines would be long (at least 20 minute wait), but they were pretty short today. I'm guessing it had something to do with the fact that it was 90 degrees outside.
Out first stop was a taco truck (gotta start with the classics) called Triple Dash Three or "3-3-3".
And, as the named suggested, we ordered three tacos - specifically Triple's Taco Trio.
It did not disappoint. I was partial to the carne asada, which I pretty much dominated and Brandon had the other two, a pork and chicken. What can I say? I'm a steak girl through and through.
A close up for good measure.
We couldn't leave without trying at least one more truck. Sadly, there was no "dessert truck" to be found, but we did find this little gem at an Asian Fusion truck.
This would be a mochimisu (mochi and tiramisu) from Ko Ja's Kitchen. Amazing.
After admiring some of the great artwork on the trucks, we were off. Its safe to say that I'm now a huge food truck and 50mm lens fan. Success.
p.s. I'm now using Flickr to store my blog photos since they were taking over my Picasa Albums and driving me batty. Let me know if they load too slowly and I'll
