Previously I mentioned some of the weirdness that the internet seems to breed in relation to taking pictures of food. I maintain that this is one of the strangest of cultural phenomena however the office does not wholly agree. Allow me to explain.
Taking photos of what you’re about to eat is just odd. I agree there is plenty of odd stuff on the web like the Harlem Shake,
like the Ed Balls meme and
the lunacy of Korea’s singing sensation PSY with Gangnam Style.
But taking a picture of what you’re about to have for tea and posting it so everyone can see, I simply don’t understand.
At least the Harlem Shake is kind of amusing, and hey, put a horse’s head mask on and nobody will ever know. Even Gangnam Style I understand, it’s an undeniably catchy pop song and the video is gloriously mad, even if 1.6 billion views and counting seems a little excessive.
A photo of blurry baked beans on toast – no, I don’t get it.
Seriously, leave the photography to the professionals!
