DANCIN' ON THE GRAVE OF ALL THINGS ORIGINAL.
On December 8, 1980, Annie Leibovitz had a photo shoot with John Lennon for Rolling Stone, promising him that he would make the cover. She had initially tried to get a picture with just Lennon alone, which is what Rolling Stone wanted, but Lennon insisted that both he and Yoko Ono be on the cover. Leibovitz had John remove his clothes and curl up next to Yoko. She recalls,“What is interesting is she said she’d take her top off and I said, ‘Leave everything on’ — not really preconceiving the picture at all. Then he curled up next to her and it was very, very strong. You couldn’t help but feel that he was cold and he looked like he was clinging on to her. I think it was amazing to look at the first Polaroid and they were both very excited. John said, ‘You’ve captured our relationship exactly. Promise me it’ll be on the cover.’ I looked him in the eye and we shook on it.”
Leibovitz was the last person to professionally photograph Lennon — he was shot and killed five hours after this photograph was taken.
Below are some snapshots during my #foodporn smorgasbord…
This truck speaks my language. @bigasssandwich
Why yes, those are fries in my big ass sammich.
Out back, where the goodness is made. #foodporn
Uhhhhhhh. Icecream? Anyone?
@ThreeTwins organic ice cream
Thanks to the nice fella’, Sam, who explained the Monopoly-esque money system that #sfsff was using for
drunken early ticket buyers. (So that’s what Canadian money looks like?!) That’s a great way to not lose yer cash if yer tipsy, eh?
The “I <cart> STREET FOOD” shirts were omnipresent on Folsom Street.
The end is nigh. Gorge thyself on tuna tartare, while you still can.
It wouldn’t be a food festival without something wrapped in #bacon…
Makeshift food tables that are both ghetto street-cred worthy and eco-friendly? Check.
Cheeky! Check them out at @LIBAFalafel.
That’s all, folks!
Good times were definitely had, and so was many a tasty, greasy, delicious bite at the #sfsff this year.
Next year, I buy myself an “I <cart> STREET FOOD” shirt, get in early on some of that Canuck lookin’ funny money, and prepare a vendor bucket-list!
See you next year!
