Today is World Food Day!

Everybody loves food. But it’s even better if everybody has food, don’t you think? Find more about World Food Day after the jump!

While it may sound just like purely scrumptious event like the International Chocolate Day awhile back, today’s occasion is also tied in with a noble cause.

World Food Day is celebrated in honor of the founding of the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization — a specialized agency that leads international efforts to defeat hunger – in 1945. The day is celebrated widely by many other organizations concerned with food security, including the World Food Programme.

So how about sharing a meal with a loved one? Or with someone less fortunate? With a stranger, perhaps? I’m sure it’ll make someone’s day! And it won’t just be food for the body, but also food for the soul!

And while we’re at it, here’s a gallery of fine food photographs from the community to feed your analogue soul. Enjoy!

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    A Salute to the Masters: The Democratic Eye (A Tribute to William Eggleston)

    William Eggleston is one of the most important contemporary master and pioneer of color photography. In this article I write a tribute to his particular democratic way of looking around. For him "Nothing was more important or less important", and everything is worthy of being photographed. Again, he is fond of the dear old film; he said that "I don't think much about the digital world, because I am in the analog world!". Read more after the jump!
