My girlfriend is an excellent cook and sometimes I’ll snap a few pics of her awesome cooking. Here’s a shot of some salmon with orzo, tomatos, onions, and capers.
I’m trying to carry my camera around more often and had it with me as I ate at both Yeah! Burger and Farm Burger here in Atlanta. Both places emphasize natural organic ingredients and both are excellent places to grab a delicious burger. I don’t view this as a competition because I think we are lucky to have them both! Yeah!
