I bought a new camera last week, finally updating my old canon 40D to a full frame 6D. Besides kicking myself for not making the leap earlier, I've been taking it out on mini test runs all week. We stopped by Hobba for lunch and I was pleasantly surprised to see a few changes to the place since my last visit, more tables, that lovely poster and a bigger kitchen. The menu also underwent a change so it was nice to try all new dishes. My friend, D, had the bubble and squeak which had a really interesting brown butter hollandaise sauce. Meanwhile, I ordered the braised pork, and the combination of the fried egg, tear apart pork, radish and sauce made for a perfect brunch meal. Hobba is such a nice warehouse space to have a meal with friends, I don't know why I don't come here more often.

As for the 6D, I don't know how I'm going to get any use out of my Fuji X-pro. Sure the Fuji is more compact and the images are fantastic but the full frame is amazing. It might just be a case of the new and the shiny so we'll just have to see.
