Drooling Through the Screen

I went to the beach this past weekend to spend time with my best friend. Chels, her fiancé Zack and his brother Josh, are all very close so when I visit we usually spend time together. While Josh and I were chatting he asked how life was in Baltimore. I told him about work and all the fun things I was doing. He mentioned that I post a lot of food pictures on my Instagram and that he drools over every single one.

I started thinking about all of the food pictures I’ve taken over the four years I’ve been in Baltimore and how did Instagram food photography even became a thing? I mean, taking pictures of what I’m eating before I eat it and then sharing it with the world…it sounds weird when you put it like that!

I look at it as an opportunity to promote the restaurants that I love. If I didn’t have a blog I don’t think I’d take so many food photos and share them with my followers but I want to show folks in Baltimore and surrounding areas what options they have in the city. I want to make them aware of new restaurants and old ones that are too good to pass up.

Eating and socializing is a part of my culture as a city dweller and a millennial. I am totally not ashamed to sit down for dinner and drinks with my friends and ask everyone to please refrain from eating so I can snap a quick pic. Do they love me when I do this? Probably not, but it brings me joy to connect local businesses with someone who may have not known about them before.

After having this conversation with Josh, I went through my Instagram and found some of my favorite food photos.

    I am always rolling over your IG feed and appreciate you introducing me to new restaurants! I don’t venture out nearly as much as I should for living here as long as I have.
