Oh, I dunno if I'd be so quick to jump to that conclusion. :)

Those folks who photograph everything they eat definitely have OCD.

"What's the deal" with these people called "Roadfooders" taking pictures of their food everywhere they go?  Can't touch it, smell it or taste it.  Not interested.  (said with deepest apologies to Jerry Seinfeld)

It is very obvious that restaurants are now much more used to customers taking photos of their food.  If I get asked about it nowadays, it is usually from another patron and even that is happening less frequently. 

It is reassuring to know, that CarolinaBob and TravelinMan will still get yelled at occasionally.

Sorry if this is redundant, I missed the original thread.  Thanks Tony Bad.



Nothing in the Time's gallery that is any better than what is posted every day at Roadfood. 

You can have your moment of virtual fame, too.  Post your favorite food pics here

This is the Times' gallery of meal photo submissions.

When Jane and I started doing Roadfood, I got kicked out of restaurants more than a few times because the owner caught me taking pictures. That meant that either I was planning to open a competing restaurant or I was some sort of muckraking reporter taking a picture of a cockroach I'd found. The idea of reporting on a cheeseburger or bbq or fried chicken was unheard of.
 
Speaking of Roadfood's early days, here is a picture I took inside the very first real Texas barbecue we came across, in the back room of a market in the town of Waelder, some time in the early 1970s. I like the cardboard-box decor! If you look closely you can see a knife chained to the table for cutting the sausage links -- a smokehouse custom we haven't seen in a long time.

Nowadays the table would probably be detained under the Patriot Act.

Michael, that was always one of my favorite Roadfood photos - I think it was in A Taste of America, in black and white, if I'm not mistaken.

Michael, do you remember the equipment and film you used for that photo?

I haven't bought a new camera in about three years, but a friend who has tells me there's a "food" setting on his...

I was able to get 2 of my photos posted at the NYT site before they stopped adding them.  Here and here.

"It’s harder to control lighting at night or in restaurants. Your best bet, the pros say, is to turn off the flash and use manual camera settings and a tripod."
.
.
.
"Stay seated. Standing up, kneeling on a banquette, carrying your food to a more picturesque spot — all can be disruptive to your companions."
 
And setting up a tripod wouldn't be?
 
These ideas seem to be a bit at odds with each other.
