Well, this post is a bit late, but after my experience of making a video to attend the creativeLIVE Food Photography workshop with Penny De Los Santos, I realized that I need to get my butt in gear and stop making excuses for not posting. I do the work, but I delay on posting. It may be that visual expression comes easier to me than using words to express my feelings and experiences. About 6 months ago, my husband and I were in Barbados. We befriended the taxi driver (Anthony) who picked us up at the airport and he became our tour guide for the couple of days we were there. I asked him about the local food. He volunteered to take us to lunch where we could get authentic local fare. I was excited about the little adventure. But upon arriving at the 'restaurant', I was a bit surprised. When we pulled up, my husband and I thought he was getting out to ask for directions, but no, this was the place. Looked like we were just going to order our food from a roadside cafeteria and eat it in the taxi. After our friend ordered for us, we were guided around back to a bar, where we could order a drink and sit and eat. Whew! At least my husband could get a beer. He wasn't too keen on the whole experience. On the other hand, I was thrilled! The food was starchy and quite bland, but I was out of my comfort zone, and that was a good thing.
