To pic or not to pic

… eating successfully should be about submission, about easily and without thinking giving yourself over to whatever dream they’d like you to share. In the best case scenario, you shouldn’t be intellectualizing what you’re eating while you’re eating it. You shouldn’t be noticing things at all. You should be pleasingly oblivious to the movements of the servers in the dining area and bus stations, only dimly aware of the passage of time. Taking pictures of your food as it arrives – or, worse, jotting down brief descriptions for your blog entry later – is missing the point entirely. You shouldn’t be forced to think at all. Only feel.
– Anthony Bourdain
