Ah, the intimidating first post.  What are you doing here? Get out of my internet!

I started playing around with film SLRs last summer.  Freshly finished with my undergraduate degree and was spending what summer I had left before moving to Baltimore putzing about in the Midwest.  After classes finished and the ennui of summer set in, my friends and I spent a lot of time with each other and food.  Always food.
