Curious, Why Don't More Folks Post Photos?

I just love pictures of food.
I'm wondering why more folks
here at DC don't post photos of their creations?
I just go nuts for those.
Just Curious...
How about you? What do you think?

I usually think of a photo after I've already eaten a bunch of my subject! :lol:

I do take pics of my dinner most nights, just in case, but they never look as good as the plate that was my subject. I guess I'm photography challenged in my old age - or phone camera age, more like it.

For me, there are several reasons.

1. It's a pain in the butt to take pictures with my camera, download them onto my computer then upload them to DC.

2. When I'm in the midst of making dinner, I never think of stopping to take a picture.

3. I don't give a lot of thought to plating pretty food. Just look back at some of my food photos.

No that I have a slick new iPhone, maybe I'll get into the habit. At least #1 won't be an issue.

My food just isn't that photogenic. It's tasty, but not all that purty. And it won't hold still long enough to get its picture taken!

I don't for several reasons:

1. Usually it's still hissing and growling and backing into dark corners where the light isn't good.

2. The airsickness bags next to the plates aren't the pretty designer ones.

3. We only use plates when the troughs and wooden spoons are all in the dishwasher.

4. There's always three or more cats on the table washing their butts.

5. The food looks like burnt offerings and I don't want anyone here to think we have odd religious practices.

6. The biohazard tape around the stove hasn't been removed by the EPA yet and it looks weird.

So you see, I'm such a caring and considerate poster here; I just couldn't do that to all of you wonderful people.

LOL @ CCL.

I post as many as I think worthy of posting, none are even close to professional though.

I prefer uploading from my camera to photobucket.com rather than here however.
Photobucket makes it so durn easy and I think the pictures from there are superior for posting here.

I'm right there with you though Kgirl. I love seeing pictures of food, and appreciate every one.

Folks, it doesn't always have to be magazine perfect, it's just us...

[not so perfect photo of a plate while we were in Hawaii... Teri Steak, rice and veg, kinda started to eat and then oops, remembered to take a photo]

I post quite a few pics here...:ermm::lol: I'll post a food photo if I think it looks tasty, or if the sunset is a particularly beautiful one, or if there's a grandkid pic I want to share, or a road trip pic, or if I went to the farmers market and got a good haul, or....or.....:lol:

But as mentioned above, I ALWAYS love looking at member's pics. Always. :smile: I don't think anyone cares if they're 'magazine' quality or not, we just love to see pics.
