Okay, So last night my wife and I went out to Valentine's day dinner. Slow food, great experience. Two things (besides being out with my wife) made it really special. 1 - The pace of the meal. 2 - The type of meal. Did I mention slow. 2 1/2 hours start to finish, 8 or so small courses served one at a time with live music. It started with non-alcoholic Prickly Pear cactus bubbly, included a bread made with cattails, a scrumptious curry soup, a sorbet to die for just before the main course, and ended a chocolate coconut hot toddy. All raw and wild foods, purely vegetarian fare. The evening was truly special because of it's pace and because it isn't normal. (Side note - Just for giggles I tried this pace again today with more normal rations while I was working around the house and ate half my normal portions and felt very satisfied.) The group putting this on is a non-profit and the restaurant is a small but growing concern that helps support the non-profit through good old fashioned capitalism. It is even moving from 2 to 3 days a week open. They teach cooking and about wild food gathering and I don't know what all else. So what does this have to do with analog photography? This restaurant is bucking the normal hurry-up trend of our world and riding on the back of the green movement, the back to the land movement, vegetarianism, and good old peace-loving liberal (hippy) thought. My thought is that analog photography's future success is probably based on the elephants in the room that nobody is talking about, and no I'm not talking about digital, I'm talking about the lack of time we all seem to face and the changes in social interaction/communication. My question now is "what social trends can we surf on going forward?"
