img_0025.jpg This is my favorite one that came from the 35mm I used in the Holga. It has a vintage feel which appeals to me, like Eddie Fisher is about to come out and start serenading. I was telling my friend Merry about this picture last weekend and she got really excited. Too excited. "Oh my God, I can’t believe someone else knows that! I used to drink that all the time!" she yelled in her southern drawl. This took place over the phone, but I pictured her excitedly cooling her face with a lacey fan held by a gloved hand. "You drink steak sauce?" I mean, I know I have weird friends, but I was still taken aback. Just a little. Then she explained that she thought I had said Ale 8, a ginger ale-ish beverage. "Yeah, Erin. Whenever I get that craving for a delicious drink of savory meat sauce, I just have to have my A-1."

    This was at an Italian restaurant and HENRY yelled at me for “wasting film.”

    It really brought me back to childhood, man.
