A few observations about photographing tomato sandwiches on a hot, nearly-summer day in the middle of Mississippi:
1). Wonder Bread may make a fine sandwich, but it makes an even better SPONGE.
2). Wonder Bread retains the consistency of bread for approximately 2.5 seconds.
3). Tomato sandwiches make lovely eating, but they sure do look like slop on a plate.
4). Photographers should not eat three tomato sandwiches after crawling around in 90 degree temperatures for two hours.
5). Photographing a tomato sandwich really shouldn’t take two hours.
6). When you spend two hours of your life photographing a sandwich, you really have to wonder.
7). Food stylists are worth every penny you pay them. I should find one. And pay them.
8). Air Force cadets like tomato sandwiches.
9). Air Force cadets like girls crawling around on the ground photographing tomato sandwiches even better.
10). Air Force cadets are laughing at you, not with you. (Or they want your sandwich.)
