At Zinger Chicken and Pizza, diners fill up on myriad chicken dishes and styles of pizza. The chicken dishes range from a crispy chicken sandwich to a stromboli covered in buffalo chicken and blue cheese. The pizzas run the gamut from the chicken-and-broccoli pie to one topped with a trifecta of meatballs, sausage, and pepperoni.
Don't let the eatery's name deceive you, though. The culinary team whips up other dishes, too, such as seafood platters, pasta, and, for dessert, cherry cheesecake.
Modeling headshots. Family photo shoots. Wedding portraits. These are just a handful of the many services professional photographer Jahi Sadiq offers at Intricate Photography. That's because Jahi's approach blends the technical and the artistic, allowing the camera-wielding pro to understand the lighting necessary to capture an actor's various moods and have the artistic patience to capture a child's finger painting that only lives in the child's head.
A man lies tangled in a shower curtain, lifeless, with blood spattered everywhere; "kill your boyfriend" was the theme of this shoot, conducted by photographer Nikki Riley for one of her clients who'd recently parted ways with her latest beau. Nikki's willingness to transcend boundaries, paired with her creative flair, has sent her to New York City and Atlanta to shoot risqu? and editorial-style fashion spreads and helped her earn a nomination for PHL17's Philly's Hot List of Best Photographers 2011. Raised as a "John Lennon kid" by a photographer mother, her inherited desire to snap shots came to fruition soon after graduating college, when she traded her 9?5 desk job for a career in photography. Nikon D700 in tow, Nikki spends her days at the 1,700-square-foot studio she co-owns, The Hive 215, which features high ceilings, loft windows, vintage furnishings, and a beauty bar where specialists prep clients' hair and makeup.
Though Nikki's fashion and portrait shoots favor bold colors and clean, magazine-quality finishes, her intimate boudoir shoots explore both high and low angles and toy with exposure?in every sense of the word. Taken from the most flattering angles for each body type, shots of lingerie-clad legs and torsos sway from high-contrast black and white to elegantly washed-out color frames lit softly from behind like an angel auditioning for the cover of Maxim. Nikki caters these shoots to the desires and comfort level of each client, letting imaginations run wild with coy pinup poses or showcasing epidermises for keepsake shots of clients in any state of undress.
In 1918, Giovanni Tacconelli arrived in America and built a brick oven in which to make his signature breads. These breads were eventually pushed aside to make room for his mother’s tomato pies, but nobody seems to be complaining. Today, the same oven continues to cook the same pies topped with light cheese and—of course—a thick, heavy tomato sauce.
