Digitally Dining…

For a nation obsessed with food, a nation which has the highest number of mobile phone users in the world, its only natural that the two obsessions should combine.

There was a time, during obligatory banquets, meals, just eating out, I’d wait patiently while my friends/business partners/colleagues would take photos like this

or this

while I would use my Canon … camera… ( remember such an old-fashioned thing??) like this..

really big aloe vera….somewhere in north Jiangsu

some years later, my daughter reached an age and social setting where a mobile phone was obligatory, and she started taking photos like this….

and make photo collages like  this…

Eventually, I got the bug. Now it’s me taking photos like this

and this

and getting instructions from my daughter on smart-phone food photo-taking…

 

oh, and then there’s the drinks…

something sweet?….

See…. a food-obsessed nation that has the most mobile phones in the world ….. that’s a mammoth lot of food photos hanging out there in cyberspace….
