Yummy shots! I recently read an article that someone linked where restaurants are asking patrons not to take photos of their food and posting them (supposedly many of the smartphone photos were not very appealing and were offending the owners). If any of the photos here had been taken from a local restaurant, I'd definitely make plans to dine there (typing as as I drool...).
Where I live I think it is almost required by law to take photos of your food. Evidence maybe? Get sick, doc ask you "what was the last thing you ate" and you whip out your phone/camera and say "hold on, I've got a shot of it right here....."
