eat a dick Katherine Markovich!
I've been blogging since 2004, way before Twitter, or Instagram, or the monstrosity that is Facebook. And I've always taken photos of my food. I used to do art and I believe that photographing food is an offshoot of that lingering artistic propensity. I'm also slightly OCD; I don't dump food on a plate, nor eat from a plastic container if I could help it. Photographing something deftly plated reaffirms a world with order, with symmetry, with true civility. It's inevitable that in this age of incessant show and tell, I have succumbed to Instagram, Tweeting and marking my Facebook timeline with food photos.
But I have since recovered my senses; I have a private Instagram account (yep I just use the filters because they're really pretty). I've deactivated my Facebook account. I only tweet sad, pathetic digs at Kim Kardashian and Ara Mina's horrible, horrible sister.
But I still feel compelled to defend myself against Katherine Markovich's rant against people who post photos of their food. I should really have ignored the sad, frigging bitch who's probably never had a decent meal in her life, but then there are moments like this - and Katherine knows this- when you believe that you're ranting against and defending (that's me) something important.
It's just food. We photograph it because it's there.
So eat a dick Katherine Markovich and don't forget to Instagram it!
