An Ode to Pictures of Food

Today's New York Times article about taking pictures of your food caught my eye, because it's exactly what I do. I love taking pictures of food. As I get older, I find that food, like music, really brings back memories for me.

One thing I wish is that I had taken more pictures in college, or when my relationship was in its earlier stages. Maybe it's because I was eating crappy food, but why didn't I take more pictures of the special occasions in which I ate outside the dining common? As an example, there was one night in the final months of college when I was really stressed and depressed by the prospect of being thrust into the Real World, and the boy surprised me by picking me up on campus and taking me to Chez Panisse Restaurant. It was such a wonderful night, and I am sad I don't have photos, only a menu of what we ate. [If you're ever in Berkeley for a special occasion, like you're hungry and have a couple hundred bucks to spare, I highly recommend it!]

As an ode to taking pictures of food, here are some of my favorites from 2009. 2010 has been busy, but let's hope I have more food pictures by the end of it!
