We've been away. Literally and figuratively. It's not been a great 6 weeks. And we've had distractions.
I am digging out and getting caught up and firing up some brand new posts for this here blog. In the meantime, I thought I'd link -- for those of you not following Dave or I on Twitter or EatingAsia on Facebook -- to a series of food photos on Dave's photography blog.
Everyone loves markets, right? We love the hustle, the bustle, the overwhelming colorful beauty of them.
But as Dave shows with this series of photos, markets are gorgeous in black and white too. Maybe even more so, without the distraction of color. Have a look for yourself and see. That shot up top? It's going on our kitchen wall.
If you're hungry for more B&W food images from Asia, check out Dave's Photoshelter gallery, here.
(Worth noting, because it's getting to be that time of year: every image in that B&W gallery and in Dave's other galleries on Photoshelter, and on his blog and on this one, and that you might have seen in stories he's photographed for publications such as the New York Times, Saveur and Australia's SBS Feast, are available for purchase.)
