Encouraging my hobby

Yesterday Greg asked whether I plan to continue with my frequent food blogging.

“Well, unless someone else is going to move into our house and cook for us, yes, I think I will,” I said. “Why do you ask?”

“Most food bloggers use macro lenses to take their photos, so we might want to get a macro lens for you,” Greg said.

Let me point out here that Greg has a digital SLR camera and four different lenses for it. And a film SLR camera that’s sitting in a closet. And a point-and-shoot that he recently bought for me but has since reclaimed for himself because I wasn’t using it.

“So this lens would be for me then?” I asked, my eyebrows raised.

“Yes,” Greg said. “Just like that New York Times subscription you got was for me.”

It was his Father’s Day gift.

Well played, my clever husband, well played.
