I recently took my first trip to Las Vegas.
After uploading photos from the trip on Facebook earlier this week, a coworker called me and said, “You have to be the only person who went to Vegas and took more pictures of food than you did inside casinos.”
I quickly ran through the pictures in my head.
Yup, I took pictures of everything that I ate, so it’s safe to say that I uploaded a whole lot of food photos.
I guess you can take the food writer on vacation, but you can’t completely make her vacate food writing.
In my trusty little notebook that’s always at the ready, I even wrote down the menu description and how they tasted. I even went so far as to bogart bites from my companion’s plates so I could include his meals in the notebook, too – just like I do when I’m on a food-writing assignment.
Can a writer ever really completely detach themself from writing?
I don’t think so, especially when there’s a notebook and pen handy – and food that’s ready for its closeup.
