New Camera and something else

Through the generosity of a friend (Rob Bergstrom of Red Boat) I have a new camera. New to me, it is a slightly used Canon 40D with a 50mm f1.8 lens. I am a happy boy, with a new toy. And so, having secured this new camera, I decided to test it out. Here is my first post shot with the new camera.
And what you ask is that stuff? It is salt. I can't go into much more detail at this point, other than to say that it is salt, from Vietnam.


  1. Nice shot, that would be hand harvested sea salt that has crystalized on the the rim of the hand made wood barrels during Red Boat fish sauce fermentation. I can't wait to see how you use it. It should add an amazing umami blast.

    Enjoy the 40D - it is yours until I drop my other camera off a cliff. You can't blame the camera anymore. Happy shooting.


  2. Thanks Rob, I didn't want to let the cat out of the bag on the sea salt until you had a chance to distribute it to all your high end cheffy friends.

  3. Oh I bet this salt would go great with the truffles or caramel ice cream!
    How does Rob keep getting these wonderful things?

  4. Ooo, caramel, now that would be a great use. Thanks Mai.
