Thematic Photographic 290 - Hungry?

Dog. No blanket.
London, ON
March 2014
No need to state the obvious - but I'll do it anyway because that's what I do: This is a weird picture. I shot it because I was sitting at the kitchen table with our daughter, and I got it into my head that I wanted to have a little fun with her. Because she's that kind of kid, and I'm that kind of dad.

And it occurred to me that I haven't been shooting food lately as much as I used to. Which made me sad. Because food photography - dare I call it food porn? - is one of the more interesting subsets of photography, and one that connects nicely with all of us. Because we all have to eat. And we all need a reason or two to smile.

Your turn: Find some food, shoot it, share it, comment here. Visit others. Repeat through the week. Click here for more background on how Thematic Photographic works. And enjoy. Because photography should always be something we enjoy whether we're in front of or behind the lens, and whether or not we're eating at the time.

Actor Alan Alda's (yes M*A*S*H) wife published a book years ago on her food photography, Carmi. My Mom mentioned this, and of course it came to mind when I saw this post!

There's always someone...or something...hungry around here!

I changed the theme a little "Are you really hungry?"

Are you really hungry?

Not a big hot dog fan myself... but my kid sure does love them.

Hungry? Can I interest you in some School Lunch?

Now that's the perfect way to eat your hot dog! I can just see the expression on your daughter's face. What is daddy doing now! Hehehe! I just love it.

I took the easy way out and photographed what I ate.

Had to burrow in my archives for these!
