Mmm, postcards that smell like food — Lost At E Minor: For creative people

We at MUS e YUM now have a way to add a whole new sensory dimension to our food photography. Check out the article below…an interesting find on the art and culture blog, Lost at E Minor:

Mmm, postcards that smell like food — Lost At E Minor: For creative people.

“Imagine a food printer that takes a snapshot of food and extracts its aroma simultaneously, then prints a postcard with aroma inks via a sensor that mixes the inks in the machine. Yes, a Chinese industrial design student did dream up that concept, and has even made a prototype device of this food printer for a Sony competition. We’re not so sure about the invention, though. It is just slightly cruel to send yummy smells to a friend instead of calling for good old food delivery.”

The community turned out to show their support for the Hunters Point community and the Blue Greenway project. The EPA presented two grants at a press conference held at India Basin Shoreline Park. $400,000 was awarded to SF Environment for Site Assessments and the Hunters Point Family received $200,000 in grant funding for job training.

Earth Day, 2012, a set on Flickr.

SF Environment had a story to tell.

Each year, Earth Day, April 22nd, marks the anniversary of what many consider to be the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Earth Day 1970 capitalized on the emerging consciousness of its era, channeling the energy of the anti-war protest movement and bringing environmental concerns front and center. We at SF Environment continue to advocate for environmental causes that enhance our lives not only in San Francisco but beyond. Get involved and make every day Earth Day!

my event photography: Henry Wine Group wine tasting at 25 Lusk

The Henry Wine Group had a story to tell.

In honor of great wines, the HWG brought together the best local wine makers for a tasting to end all others at the very swanky 25 Lusk, in San Francisco. They needed me to photograph the event. This is the story of the makers, the consumers and above all, the wine.

Partnered with fellow photographer Stéphane Houari to cover the event.

This pastry is quite a sight to behold, and it is equally delicious. Filled with a sweet ricotta filling redolent of citrus, the dough is a perfectly-formed crescent of beautifully scalloped, thin, buttery, flaky, magnificent layers. I’d love to see how these are made. . .  incredible!
