A lot of the blogs I follow and for that matter a lot of Face Book folks I follow have a tendency of showing shots of their food in their posts. I’ve always enjoyed seeing those images especially some of the more exotic concoctions. The problem is I don’t like to take my DLSR into a restaurant to only take a picture of my food.
What to do. I suppose I could use my smart phone camera but I’ve never been a big fan of those. I know some people swear by the iPhone camera and I have version 5.0 but I really don’t like taking pictures with it. So today I’m having lunch with my friend Dave and I decide to whip out my new point and shoot camera and take a picture of my food.
“What the hell are you doing?” was his first response. 🙂 Taking a picture of my food. Then he gave me the look as if to say are you stupid? Obviously he is not into food photography.
So last week I got an email from Nikon (I’m a good customers of theirs) and they recognize that I have NAS (Nikon Acquisition Syndrome) so they periodically send me offers that cannot be refused. Well last week there was such an offer. It was for a little point and shoot camera that was being discontinued and it was being offered for a great price. I had enough reward points saved up that I was able to buy this little guy for under $50.
I wish I would have had it earlier in my 365 project as there are many times during the day that I would take a quick picture of something if I had a decent camera with me. The only downside is it doesn’t shoot in RAW but it is a 14 mp camera and takes decent shots.
Now for the really bad news. This was my second plate full. I’m so bad and then I wonder why I am not losing any weight. 😦
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your midweek hump day. Be careful.
