  • When too much breakfast is barely enough 2 weeks ago A quick one this time. Last time around I thought that problematic levels of food photography were still far in our future, but it turns out that the future arrives sooner than you think. With the cafe being open on Sundays now, we thought we should take a few more shots of our breakfast...
