A Moment of Pride…

My photo is featured in Forbes’ Magazine’s favorite restaurant picks. [Points down]

Forbes' tearsheet FOR REALZ?!

I almost forgotten about this and thought it wouldn’t happen since I’m just a wee food-and-photo obsessed blogger. I mean, I’m sure that there are a lot of professional photographers out there who could easily take an exponentially better photo than I could and somehow I’ve been “discovered.”


How this happened was that the photo editor of Forbes contacted me and requested to use my photo of Cafe Boulud (this one) about a month ago. Since I haven’t heard anything more beyond the first few days, I presumed they’re not using my photo. However, the same person emailed me yesterday and told me that I was featured and gave me the link.

All I could say is, “Wow…I feel humbled.” I just wish they do linkbacks but obviously it’s hard to do for a caption but it’s better than no credit (Duh!).

If you would like to see the actual page, here is the link. Just be warned that their slideshow starts automatically within a few seconds.

Thanks to Forbes for featuring me and to all of you guys for (silently) rooting for me.

    Tasty trekker: I’m going out to Hearth tomorrow evening. Should be LOTS of fun (eating there with a friend who I haven’t seen for nearly a year).

    Way to live the dream! How very photogenic of you, too! Although I think my first reaction would have been more along the lines of something that couldn’t be printed in Forbes…than i would have had the whole “feeling humbled” experience. Congrats!!

    Congrats… very well deserved credit. Now you have the street cred to publish an entire book of food porn!!!

    wineguy: Haha… Thanks! I was flabbergasted when the editor contacted me. I was like “WUH? ME?!

    Mitzy: Thank you! :D I’ll see you soon!

    steveTV: Thanks as well! I don’t think the world is ready for a book of food porn…but it doesn’t sound like a bad a thought. Hmmm…
