A few weeks ago I went out and had sushi for lunch at Mikado in Sandy, UT. I’ve been trying to carry my 7D around more and happened to have it with me so I got a photo of this beautiful little plate of food. It’s one of my favorite foods but I don’t get out to eat it often enough. It’s also something I’d love to photograph in a “real” photo-shoot one of these days. Maybe I’ll take one of the “Sushi 101” classes at Harmons and learn how to make it myself so I can do all the styling on my own. :)
