Some cool diet images:

Char Kway Teow in Georgetown

We lined up for longer than I felt was going to be worthwhile at the Joo Hooi Lane Cafe on Jalan Penang in the UNESCO World Heritage area of Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia. I have to admit the old woman made a fine Penang Char Kway Teow (although I am too innocent and mild in this area of food appreciation). And the crowded grimly surrounding changes after a few minutes into something more comfortable and lively. The chendol – the right brown sugar substrate – was great.

Bruce Davidson interviewed by The Guardian:

"What, I ask, has a lifetime of taking photographs taught him? "That often what makes a good picture is almost subliminal. It could be a look on a face or a detail on a piece of clothing. You just have to go with the flow sometimes. When I was a kid, I played baseball and you heard the sound the bat made when it really connected with the ball; you knew you had a great hit. It’s the same with photography: sometimes you hear that click of the shutter and you know you’ve caught something really special."…

This photo slowly became one of ‘my darlings’ and is therefore at risk of undue personal beautification and I know it isn’t perfect; too grainy etc. But I like the colours and the light. I learned a lot about printing too trying to get this right.
