World Food Day


There are serious approaches a person could take to World Food Day, but one of my ongoing aims in life is to be less earnest in my writing. (Hard when my best ideas for books lately seem to be about serious stuff.) So on this WFD, instead of blogging about world hunger, genetically modified foods, or disturbing practices behind the production of some of our foods, I will tell you instead that my sister once threatened to buy me a t-shirt which says I Take Pictures of My Food.


Does that make me sound like an oddball? Maybe! But I take pictures of all kinds of things, focusing usually on what I find beautiful (not always in the traditional sense of the word). Since my food sometimes strikes me that way, I decided that today – on World Food Day 2010 – I would treat my blog followers to a few of my favourite food pictures.

    This post shows one of the ways that Instagram has changed our world. Taking pictures of food is now so common that it’s barely worth teasing you about. I’m sure if I try hard enough, I’ll find something else to pick on. 😉
