kitchen geek

i think i've mentioned before that i used to run a little underground restaurant of sorts when i lived in chicago. i sent out a preplanned menu, put a set number of tickets on etsy, and then made that dinner for the first 12 people to snag a seat. it was so much fun - one of the things i'm most proud of, i think - but the point of all this is to be able to post these photos, which i used way back then as background images for the menu/invitation. i stumbled upon this guy's photos on flickr while looking for some kind of funny food-themed photo, and he had so many, i had to use them.

so i post them here, purely for your enjoyment. he calls the series "kitchen geek" and they are so gorgeously and cleverly composed. i hope you like them as much as i do. you can see all of them, and the rest of his gorgeous flickr, here.

hope you're enjoying your weekend - i definitely am!
