I went to look at my Twitter feed, which I've neglected, and it was all politics. It made me want to cry and barf at the same time.

Then I went to my Tumblr dash. The first thing that met  my eye was an entry from a photo-store's blog, where they featured yet another gimmicky photographer. I am just tired of "gimmicks" in photography -- fake "levitating" people and things, tilt-shift (see my previous post), photos of bullets going through apples, photos of food tossed in the air... I have decided I'm particularly unimpressed by the "fun with food" photography. It all just looks like a big mess. Maybe it's my grandmother's influence on my childhood. She was a farmer's daughter and raised my father through the Depression and World War 2, and I was taught never to waste food. I would get berated if I couldn't finish my plate. (When in later years I met people who had been taught to "leave a spoonful of food on your plate so you won't look like you're greedy or starving" I was quite discombobulated.) Anyway, I can just imagine what she'd say about people who toss food up in the air and around the room and then photograph it.
