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 !

Fantastic restaurant review Mike, it looks like the kind of place I could sit in and eat all day. I think I'd have to bring my own knife and fork though as the last time I attempted to use chopsticks there was an unfortunate incident involving a noodle and a woman on the next tables cleavage!!!

They probably don't have any forks and knives in an establishment of this sort. We'd have to get you up to snuff on the woodenware. I'd hate to see a cleaver accident happen to you!

Looks delicious! The decor is very nice. We went to a Japanese restaurant on vacation... my husband ordered a TON of food just for himself. The lady tried telling him he was getting too much food. We laughed hysterically at that. I don't know where he puts it all!

That happens all the time. They look at my bony body and wonder where I put the massive quantities ofg food.
