Photo Essay: When Hungry Cameramen Do Lunch

When hungry cameramen do lunch in Okinawa, Japan the first priority is it can't be some place that serves junk food.
An uncrowded, cozy atmosphere with some Okinawan music playing in the background helps.

 A young gal in traditional clothing asking you what you'd like, seconds after you walk in the door is a big plus.  So, we tell her we'd like to eat and shoot the place, too.

Once I placed my order, I did some shooting, being careful about disturbing anyone.

The place was immaculately clean. I liked the decorations and the lighting.

Ten minutes didn't even go by before our orders were on the table.

The food was piping hot so, we had plenty of time to shoot it, too.


Here's my sesame seeds before...


... and after, I grind them into powder.


Then, after I ladle sauce on my pork cutlets, I sprinkle sesame all over them.


When we do lunch, Doc starts wondering if I came there to eat, or just shoot pictures.

After every couple of bites, I pop up and get behind my tripod to shoot.

That's so you could see my salad.

They really serve way more food at this place than any normal person could eat.


But, I'm a cameraman.

Didn't want them to think I was some sort of glutton so, I left some food on the plate.

But, after I shot this photo, I went back and finished my rice.

Anyone who is interested in finding this place will have to wait for Doc to post it on his blog.

See, there's two kinds of hungry cameramen.

There is the one that does the driving and eats a light lunch.

Then, there's the hungry cameraman who falls asleep after he does lunch. 

When he wakes up,  he can't remember where he's been !
