Why do you have so many food photos?

I write a sort-of food blog and I used to work at Serious Eats. Even though I no longer need to take food photos for work, old habits die hard.

If it helps to whittle down the photos, I tag my favorite ones as...favorite. It cuts down on the food photos. I like taking photos of things that don't move.


If you're a commercial blog with ads, a magazine, or other kind of website, please contact me first.

If you use my photos in any other way without asking, and I find out about it, I shall rain hell upon you. ...Just kidding. I might write you a stern email. But let's not go there. Just contact me first.

If you're a blogger and want to use my photos on your personal blog, please contact me and ask.

You cannot use my photo in a print publication (or any non-blog media, including websites that aren't blogs) or video/TV show without asking me first. Depending on what kind of business you are, if you ask me for permission to use my photo for free, I might not respond to your message. I'm generally a nice person, but I'm tired of responding to requests from for-profit entities for free photos.

    "Over the last year or so I've been really busy, and I've had to take extended breaks from Flickr. When I come back and take a look at Robin's photostream I immediately get this Pavlovian salivation going. Doesn't matter if I've just had some giant meal - instantly starving and wishing I had 3 stomachs!"

    "roboppy's photos are some of the funnest ones to watch on flickr. it's a fun, but also admirable gallery- so i end up flickr-ing through it often. but what i like most is that the photos, along with their descriptions and titles, indicate what roboppy's personality must be like. undeniably a gallery with its own special character!"

    "where does she get the energy? how does she eat so much delicious food and not explode [yet]? where does she find the time to do things and write about them?
    is she some sort of superhuman created to make the rest of us feel lazy?

    "Robyn's photos are some of my flickr favorites! I'm amazed at how she chronicles just about everything she (and her companions) eat. She's got a way with the camera that keeps me coming back for more."

    "Robyn is the kind of person where, just when you think you've hit the ceiling for how awesome she can be, you realize that you're just getting started and your puny human brain is simply unable to comprehend the depth and breadth of the coolness that is Roboppy."
