Some folks on social media regularly ask why anyone would photograph what they eat for lunch, dinner, snacks etc.
There are two simple answers to this question.
The first is if you have to ask, you’re not a foodie so you’ll never understand.
The second is beouf au gratin, or French shepherds’ pie if we’re not wanting to sound pretentious.
If I hadn’t photographed French shepherd’s pie the last time we ate it I wouldn’t have stumbled upon it whilst looking for a particular food photograph and would have completely forgotten how good it was. What’s more, we wouldn’t have devoured it with orgasmic pleasure last night.
It is that simple.
