People who spend 10 minutes not eating while they get the white balance right? Those people ...aren't me. :D
|Beachfront Hotel, Hokitika. The man breakfast.|
|Our room. The view made everything taste awesome even though the continental breakfast was.. well, what you'd expect.|
|Breakfast. A french omelette with spinach and onion.|
|Cafe Paris oven baked fish. The crust on this was kind of cinnamon-y and rosemary-ish. With descriptions like that, it's probably fine that I'm not headed for a career in food critique.|
|Jase had the venison, which was berry-y. ;) Is that a 'jus'? French terminology is beyond me.|
|I think that is either a) a garnish or b) a piece of grass that blew in the window.|
This was the first trip where I regularly spied other people taking photographs of their food. The alert system for this occurrence involved a kick to the shins followed by a 'look over there' head swoosh from my companion. The Programmer is permanently cued to any camera activity and suffers terribly (and audibly) if the camera in question happens to be superior to his one.
It's interesting how times have changed since blogging took off. Six years ago, people definitely looked sideways when I got out the Finepix in restaurants. Now, even the most uptight waiters hardly raise a plucked eyebrow.
Speaking of which: male waiters have nice eyebrows, yes?
