Food Porn: The World’s Newest Obsession

pizza

I live  in Foodie-Ville.

Sonoma County, California is known for its access to the world’s most beautiful, biodynamic, Demeter-approved, organic, humanely-produced, preciously prepared and ingested culinary perfection.  So I’m accustomed to seeing lots of social media food porn.

But really, how many pictures can we take of pizza, pasta, lamb chops, ice cream and cupcakes?  Apparently it’s an endless display, which makes the Tumbler, Pictures of Hipsters Taking Pictures of Food, a warranted nod to the meta-nature of this phenom.

Bon Appétit.

    but none of them are good -its like an air guitar convention. because technology allows them to do a poor pastiche of real photography but they just dont get they are tom tit(rhyming slang) at it.. its as if they didn’t know a ring tone isn’t real music…would they buy a flute and try and play mozart….blah blah…
