Fruit pancake at one of the highest rated breakfast restaurants in Chiang Mai. While it looks delicious, I remember the taste being quite disappointing. Oh well, at least the presentation is nice. ;)

Taken in December of 2018 with a Samsung Galaxy S9 at f/2.4, 1/100 shutter time at 4.3mm with ISO 50.

enter image description here Thematic Pancakes
On an Alaska salmon fishing trip in Aug 2019, one of the guys made pancakes to celebrate our good fishing fortunes and friendship. The features were drawn with pancake batter using a squirty bottle, The fill was done a few minutes later (features cooks longer than the fill giving the contrast). For one of the guys he made a figurine that is inappropriate to show on this forum.

Sony RX100, f/4, 1/500s, 17.8mm (48mm FF equivalence), ISO 400

Some horehound drops I dumped onto a white plate in an attempt to try black and white photography. This is before I digitally converted to black and white...

    I was this close to wanting to downvote because my first reaction was "those aren't food! They're river rocks!!" But then I realized they were food, and I wanted several upvotes to counter my initial reaction. =)

    @scottbb Don't worry... If my father saw me eating those close he'd probably tell me to "eat some real food." Especially if I was taking them from him! Aug 11 at 22:43

    @scottbb Surely you've been told on at least a few occasions, "Go eat rocks!"

  • @MichaelC lol. Both in jest, and also mostly certainly not in jest. ;-)
