Why Food and Pictures?
Well since I was a child food has been ever present on my mind; at breakfast I would think about lunch and at dinner was thinking about the breakfast I would undoubtedly have the next day. My grandmother would always laugh because I used to get so excited about meals, that I would start humming and dancing- now that’s love! I was and never will be the type to miss a meal; but on the off chance I do miss a meal, my years practicing the art of eating allows me to visualize the perfect meal.
In recent years, I have developed a fondness- some might say an obsession- with photographing food. It’s not uncommon for me to tell my friends to halt eating in order for me to snap a photo of the plate in front of them. I do enjoy photographing people- but people talk back, people have moods and people have bad hair days; food does what I want, when I want- well, most of the time. I find food fascinating, it’s so alive, so vibrant- it really is the most interesting subject to me. Some people like to look at porn online, I would much rather look at a beautiful photograph of food. Porn is fun, food is more fun; food and porn together is messy and the MOST fun of all! But that’s for another day and perhaps another blog ;)...
I’m by no means new to the food and pictures phenomenon; I have been blogging for 2 years but after an unfortunate incident involving hackers and the deleting of my former blog- here I am! And what a fitting time to start anew; a new decade is the perfect time to start a new blog! I had been thinking long and hard about what I wanted to do with my life and (surprise surprise) food styling and food photography aka food and pictures kept coming to my mind- I couldn’t get it out of my head. And although I was beyond pissed when I attempted to log in to my former blog, only to realize that it was gone; now I feel like the universe used complete low lives to help me refocus- to get back to the basics of what I want my blog to be. So when I saw the aforementioned quote it felt somehow ordained and perfect- THIS is where my mind wanders. You could say this is a rebirth on the backs of dickheads- yeah, I like that!
And on that note, I would like to say welcome to my new home, Food and Pictures- which will be just that, a collection of recipes, pictures and ramblings in between, on my quest to style the hell out of everything edible and make it look amazing. So tell your friends, tell the world, reblog, retweet and post it to your status- Bianca is back!
