when i grow up

I don't think I'm a food blogger. I just like to take pictures of food. I find food very interesting as photography subjects. I like how the colors and shapes come together-- so organic, you know what I mean? Food is easy because it's not moving, but at the same time, challenging, because the longer it sits there, it deteriorates and the camera can see it.

I like food that looks good, which is why I like chefs who make good-looking food. But ultimately, it has to taste good. Otherwise, it's just a waste of time and calories. (I'd rather eat ugly but yummy food. Wouldn't you?)

So, anyway... I am surfing the interweb, looking at other people's food photos, comparing my style with theirs, when I find Akiko Ida.

More images here. Cuteness.

I want to be like Akiko Ida, mommy!
