I just had a conversation with a virtual friend of mine (we never had the chance to meet although we’ve know each other over the internet since almost 10 years now, back when ICQ had just started out and I was a young computer geek teenager); He’s in Italy, about to dine in Turin… and was asking me about the italian dishes on the menu. At last, I did, apparently, help him decide what to order for dinner.
Rajeev says (12:33 PM): small world. An indian from uk is asking for italian food help from an albanian in usa
Talking about food, I love taking pictures of what I eat, although I don’t do it often.
** Once Markino was determined to photograph every creation of his coming out of the kitchen and I think he even started with a couple of pictures but then gave up… I’m trying to convince him to take it seriously.**
Getting back to my food photography. I’ve decided to start taking pictures when we dine out in fine restaurants because the plates look soooo good apart from tasting delicious of course. You already saw some pictures I took at a restaurant in Carmel, a couple of weekends ago.
Last weekend we were lunching in San Francisco, at the Steps of Rome. I know, it’s a place for tourists, located in what’s left of Little Italy… But we like the guys (all italian) that run the place and the food is good!
This was my grilled shrimp & calamari on a bed of mushrooms and some green stuff which I don’t eat because it’s too healthy :P
Markino’s fried calamari… half were eaten by me
After talking about italian food with Rajeev and posting these seafood shots I’m really hungry…
