Digbeth Dining Club & Friendship

Monday, 15 April 2019

This post is about 2 weeks overdue but there’s something about this blog which drains me as well as being valuable.

Blogging a few years ago was nothing like it is now, it was all community based and about making friendships. I made friends with Nicole who unfortunately lives 5 hours away, but I have been lucky enough to meet her a few times now. And it’s great because it’s like no time has gone by at all, which is how you know it’s a great friendship.

Nicole has come to my city for work purposes, so obviously I then met her after work. I always think there is so much pressure to find somewhere good to eat but I’d wanted to try Digbeth Dining Club for ages anyway, which is a small street food/bar club in Birmingham. It’s only open Thursday to Sunday and has a few different traders each day, selling different cuisines. We opted for somewhere called Buddha Belly which caters for vegan's too, and it was amazing!

Whenever me and Nicole are together, we find good food. It's almost a must do experience, and despite blogging, we usually put our phones away pretty instantly. Nicole said something to me about instagam when we were together 

Why are we all so obsessed with capturing images for something that only exists in our hands?

And when you think about it, why are we obsessed? I love photography and documenting my life,  but we do it on something virtual. Something we can never touch but it's just there, floating around us, storing everything we upload to it. 

And what if it disappears tomorrow? I think a lot of us would have to admit to being upset. That we've created a perfectly curated set of images to please us and other people. Sad really; because if we lost it all tomorrow, would we regret not spending those moments with the ones we love instead of trying to capture it? 

Who knows? I'm just glad I put my phone down when I was with Nicole.
