Foods for Instagram

Instant graphic…

Instagram is probably one of the easiest image sharing application available to me. I take pictures, edit it a bit with some filters to highlight the subject or add contrast to it, add caption, some hash tags, upload and hey presto..! DONE… it’s shared out and posted… That’s why it’s my favorite picture sharing application that I use with my friends and social contacts. Simple snapshots that I take as a  “For Your Information..” to friends and family, no matter if it’s just for fun or sometimes for detailed explaining.

I come to realized that among the most photographed thing in (my) instagram and other users for that matter, is food …food … and food! Either, it is the food that I eat or my friends’ on the table… things that we get every day, and accustomed. Still we can’t resist taking images of them because it is just interesting.

When I look at other instagramers out there, posting pictures of their food, some of it does grab my attention. I’d probably say,

“…hey, the same kind of vegetables too…?”
“…that’s the same brand…!”
“… wow, looks nice…!”
“… interesting recipe…!”

and all the such… My point being is, it is interesting to know what others are eating out there, how they eat it and what does it look like. A much interesting, attracting and easier than sharing what fashion you’re wearing, what car or shoes or shirt you have in the closet. Food is such a simple thing and topic to share, understandable item and appreciated compared to the rest. A simple and effective communications topic.

So some of the Yummy things…

Universal…

So by now if your stomach is growling, it shows that not only you are hungry, but food is in a subliminal manner, psychologically connecting people. Even if some of us probably never seen it or yet alone taste it, it still get on to us.

Food is a universal language, one of the many things that binds us together. With food, we can even start a boring conversation with out even feeling guilty 🙂 , food is also the stuff besides filling up our tummy, gets us to interact with others. How would you get food in a foreign country without going out, ask about it and getting it.?  Everybody can talk about food, without feeling awkward because it’s a common thing and we all have to eat… Ever been to a party without food..?
