Early Saturday morning I hoofed it to Torrance, CA for the first Ramen Yokocho festival featuring 12+ ramen shops from various states as well as Japan. It was very well-attended–the line was already snaking around the building when I arrived a half-hour before the event started. It took about one and a half hours from entry to my first (and only) bowl of ramen from the day from Kitakata Ramen Ban-nai, a famous ramen chain from Kitakata, Japan.
Later in the afternoon I went over to photograph food for my friend’s school project. During downtime I decided I’d pop downstairs for a few quick snaps. Thanks to Aimee for lending me a tripod and to Brian for coaching. I had forgotten my remote at home. Teaches me a lesson–always pack the full kit when I’m going out somewhere, you never know when you might spot a cool background!
