It's a miracle I have a photo for you today since the subject of this photo also happened to be M's dinner last night. I had roughly 6.9 seconds to shoot this, and as it turns out, 6.9 seconds is just about the time it takes to take one picture. Which I did. I then stepped back to look at the picture and realized that I wanted the entire burger to be sharp, not all blurred at the edges. So I adjusted my f-stop for increased depth of field, adjusted my shutter speed to compensate for the smaller aperture, and tried to take a new picture. But during the few seconds I'd been fiddling with the settings, M had inhaled the food. Annihilated it. It was no more. You're just going to have to make do with this photo today, I'm afraid. That said, McDonalds is evil. And I will prove it to you by backing up my statement with hard facts.
Fact #1: Junk food is almost as bad for you as Pepsi Max is.
Fact #2: Low wages make workers spit in your food.
Fact #3: Before the meat ends up as your hamburger, it spends all day eating grass and farting, producing staggering amounts of methane gas, and thus being the main cause of global warming.
Fact #4: Several gallons of rainforest is cut down every day to make the packaging for their products.
Fact #5: And with all that packaging, McDonalds is single-handedly responsible for The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, (awesome movie, by the way.)
Fact #6: Their representative is a clown.
Today marks the 5th day of this photography project. Thirty photographs in thirty days is proving to be a bit of a challenge, but luckily for you, my dear readers, whenever I serve you up with a picture of a hamburger, you can hop on over to MikeWJ and see if he'll have the fries to go with the evil.
