I saw the article posted on The New York Times yesterday by Kate Murphy about people who photograph food. I really enjoyed reading it and decided to put a link to it HERE.
My personal thought on this article is that it’s timely because I have just started my blog about food and dining out. And judging from all the camera flashes and phones held up while dining out, I think that there are many of us joining this bandwagon everyday.
I think each one of us do this type of blog for ourselves. Some do it for accountability as pointed out in the article, and some for amusement. I started this blog because I found that I ate out way too often to only remember a few details after the meal. And sometimes I don’t remember at all. With the photographs, I remember why I was there, and what I ate. And the feeling of the moment. It’s almost like smelling freshly baked chocolate chip cookies can jot someone’s memory about their childhood.
