I used to visit Farina quit often for brunch starting a few years back. As the other well know breakfast places developed extreme lines and a scene like Tartine, Universal Cafe, Zazie, Foreign Cinema and Mission Beach Cafe, I in turn had the pleasure of walking right up to a table outside at Farina, having a fresh cappuccino made within minutes, receiving first class service all the way. Isn’t that what you really want for breakfast…sunny outside spot, yummy coffee, great service and good food.
A few years have passed and even this little hidden brunch spot has developed quit a following. A friend of mine who is a great designer among other things was working there at the time. We had crossed paths working together years ago and so the conversation began…”what are you up too?” this lead to my being asked to take photos for the restaurant. I love capturing environments, the skilled craft involved, the energy and the essence of a place of business or intention of a subject… these are a few of the shots
