The Worst Food Photo I Have Ever Taken

Posted on Updated on


Last night my family celebrated my mom’s birthday at El Parador, an old favorite Mexican restaurant. I wasn’t really in the mood to take photos (dark lighting), though I can say everything was excellent. I loved the fish special I ordered—light but just the right amount of spicy. It’s also hard to beat their guacamole.

One thing I will never come around to, though, is flan. I just…can’t. It could be, objectively, the best flan in the world and I would still want no part in that. However, I’m in the minority, there, so it was included in the celebratory dessert portion of the evening. My mom asked me to take a photo of that and the tres leches cake. Because I am a stunning food photographer, both shots came out spectacularly bad. I think the flan shot, however,  wins for Worst Food Photo I Have Ever Taken:IMG_4624

I love my sister for telling it like it is. At 10:45 she texted me to say, “Your flan picture looks like a big areola.” And there you have it.

Speaking of winning, I still have my Christmas tree up because I keep forgetting to take it down. I’ve been a busy lady, what can I say?

Do you like flan?  Have you ever taken a really bad photo?

    So, I still read your blog every single day but I havent commented in a while. Life wins sometimes. Anyway two important things to say 1) I love the new look of your blog! Your shining face in the upper left corner takes the cake and 2) I also cannot get into flan, ever.. If I want something of that texture and sweet, I’ll take creme brulee instead please

      Thank you—you are so sweet. I have a post about the new look, as well as some other big changes, in the works.

      Glad I’m not the only one out there who can’t get on board the flan train. Haha I was in a Starbucks today and saw a sign advertising their new flan deliciousness, and I wanted to gag.
