The Disturbing Mystery of Disappearing Food
Most of the time when I am traveling I photograph my meals like I think a lot of you do. It’s a nice reminder of what the different types of food you had plus for me I can often remember the taste and experience ( good or bad).
This picture below was taken in Sticky Fingers a restaurant operated by Bill Wyman (former Rolling Stones guitarist). It was fate that brought me to this restaurant. While I was walking around Kensington, London for the first time in my life I was listening to the BBC podcast of Adam and Joe ( pretty funny radio duo) and they were discussing Sticky Fingers the restaurant. As I was walking through Kensington and looking into every side street for photo opportunities and I saw Sticky Fingers and knew I had to eat there.
Below is a picture of the first meal I ever had in Tokyo was in Ueno, Ameyoko market. I found this small restaurant hidden underneath a train overpass and it had plastic examples of their food outside so I knew I wouldn’t have any problems ordering food. I went for the Tonkatsu (pork cutlet) and it was the best I have ever had.
It looks interesting to put the two images together.I like seeing what I didnt eat and how much of a mess I did or didn’t make. As I mentioned before I suspect alot of people take pictures of their food, but I wonder how many take a picture when they are done eating. Maybe this is not as pleasant as a full plate of food but I think it can be just as interesting.
