Porn Hong Kong

IMG_2464Photos of food. Where would Hong Kong be without photos of food? In a city where the camera always eats first, where people beheld the selfie-stick for the first time and thought “finally, a practical solution to an everyday problem” rather than “Christ, it’s the end of humanity, ” photos of food are woven in to Hong Kong’s, and East Asia’s, daily fabric.

I did a little bit of searching on the subject, so you wouldn’t have to waste your time, and, as I suspected, there’s a lot of stuff out there. Here’s a website entitled ‘Pictures of Asians Taking Pictures of Food’, which is probably a teeny bit racist because other people must do it too but hey, and here’s an article about people taking pictures of people taking pictures of food.IMG_2467 Presumably you can go on searching and find websites about people taking pictures of people taking pictures of people taking pictures of people taking pictures… like looking into a mirror that’s facing another mirror… of food until your head explodes.

Then there’s the backlash: some restaurants in France (quelle surprise) get a bit snooty about people taking pictures of food (no word yet on what they think of people taking pictures of people taking pictures of food). A warning for readers of a sensitive disposition: that last link will take you to the Daily Mail website.

So a while ago, as a very mild form of investigative journalism, I tried to take pictures of every dinner I had for a week. And, as I soon discovered, it’s actually harder than it looks to take photos of your food…

Monday: A day off work and, with no plans and no desire to actually cook something, I regress and have a sort of post-primary school dinner of frozen pizza and hashed browns. Except things get a bit messy when I try to fry them both from frozen (it said I could on the packets!). The pizza topping comes unstuck on the bottom of the pan and the hashed brown collapses. Bon Appetit.
