Food photos as prayers of gratitude

This from the American Spectator seems to me to be saying something rather true: It is easy to be cynical. We might dismiss these photos as brazen self-promotion or a symptom of millennial self-absorption. Headlines like “Instagram Food Is a Sad, Sparkly Lie” and “Instagramming Millennials Are Burying the World in Food Waste” capture the … Continue reading Food photos as prayers of gratitude

I’m photoing in the rain

Contrary to English myth, and myth elsewhere for all I know, it doesn’t actually rain that much in England, and when it does, it doesn’t usually rain that heavily. The reason we fret about rain so much is that there is just enough for it to be a nuisance, and not enough for us to … Continue reading I’m photoing in the rain

Photoers in 2003

All the photos below were taken some time during 2003. I don’t know the exact date, because either my then camera couldn’t remember such things, or I didn’t tell it to remember this particular thing.

As I have already related, there was a lot of feeding of birds going on that … Continue reading Man with food

So today I was up to my neck doing other things. Well no not really, I just forgot about doing this, until it was bed time. So, here are some photos of people photoing a man playing a tuba with flames coming out of it: Photoed by me, under Blackfriars Bridge (the one with a … Continue reading Photoing the man playing a flaming tuba

Twelve 2015 photos

I spent a lot of today doing an elaborate Samizdata posting with twelve photos in it, and now I am doing the same here. Most of these ones are just of the I Just Like It sort. Whether I have the time and energy left after posting the photos to say something about them remains … Continue reading Twelve 2015 photos

Food memories from the outer suburbs

Photographs are, as all the world has recently been learning, except those whose business – paid or unpaid – it is to complain about what all the world has recently been learning, a wonderful aid to memory. And many of the happiest memories of our extraordinarily comfortable and frequently very happy times involve food. So … Continue reading Food memories from the outer suburbs
