If the measure of what is important to you lies in the number of times it is the subject of a photograph, then, for me, food wins. I am always taking shots of my meal. As a matter of course, when Peter and I sit down to review my photos during our evening sessions, we both end up hungry.
Long before Instagram and Facebook there was my friend Daniel. The walls of his dining room were covered with photographs of his favorite meals with friends and family. It was charming. And memorable. It’s funny, but I can recall nearly every meal I have photographed. Even funnier – there was a study that indicated turnover in restaurants has slowed with the onset of social sites and Yelp. I believe it and am sure to be one of the culprits. This photograph was taken at a gastro pub we frequent in Corona del Mar that is as good with charcuterie as it is with a classic hamburger – the former a more interesting photo.
