Alright, so, unless you’ve been under a rock since Instagram (especially), you’ll be familiar with photographs of food. That’s cool an’ all, and I dig the whole food appreciation thing, even if it pains me to see posts of lazily microwaved sausages, mash, and gravy… but what I have noticed and consider to be a shame is that there isn’t many photos of people actually scoffing their fucking faces of the shit they enjoy. It’s all before and after, and no during.
This is my pal Dan. I met up with him in Leeds a couple of weeks ago ’cause he wanted me to take some photos of him and his guitars and in return he said he’d buy me beer and take me to Red’s True Barbecue. I’d never been before, and I think he considered it his life’s mission to get me there. It was great. I had a donut burger.
A fucking DONUT burger.
Tonight I was going through my memory cards ’cause I forgot I actually had to edit his photos, and then I found this at the end. Which got me thinking; Chances are if you’re eating out then it’s gonna be in a place you enjoy and I’m pretty sure you’re not going to be willingly buying something you’re not gonna love, so I want to capture you actually eating your food. Do it. Get in touch. Let’s go and eat somewhere.
Anyway, as you can probably guess, this is Dan, with a bowl of pulled pork.
