Default New bbq equip sortof?

I finally broke down and brought a camera today. i got a samsung s73 for compusa closing. This is only the second camera I have ever owned and the main reason for this is taking food porn. I guess this confirms that I have got it now. Talking with my buddy at the store he ask what I was buying it for. You can guess the look I got when I told him I would be taking pictures of food mostly. Of course I then had to explain the brethren and how it was kinda a sin not to post pics when talking about your food. I wonder what he told his buddys after I left. Do others ever fell a little weird telling other you take picturs of food? Hey Rick's trop. you give classes on?

I carry a USB FlashDrive in my pocket with tons of my Food Pron on it and show it off whenever I can. My Friends, Family and CoWorkers thought it strange at first, now they try to invite themselves over when they know I'm Smoking. A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words....

The neighbors also think I'm nuts for drinking beer in front of a loaded smoker in 10* weather. I t doesn't matter now, the damage is done.

My wife just shook her head in dis belief when she saw food pics on my camera.
Now she's starting to get used to it...I think.

My wife rolls her eyes at me when I take a pic of my food before I sit down to eat it.

I sometimes bring pictures of my food onto the train with me on my way to work to show my commuter friends.

One morning, one woman says to me "You're always bring pictures of your food. How come you never have any pictures of your kids?"

My respsone: "If my kids looked that good I'd bring pictures of them too!"

Try this out... it's a class in progress that will take several more months, but the first few lessons will help, too, and you go review them and use what's good for you.

Took a quick look at the photo site - interesting. will have to look more when I get home. Just started with the pictures, and already my friends look at me strange. That's OK though, 'caused it doesn't stop them from coming over to eat.
