Dog Days of Summer

The biggest downside to working with food photographers and stylists is that when you're mad hungry, being surrounded by images of amazing food is a mild form of torture.  Take these hot dogs, for example.  Not just the the dogs themselves, but the idea of a weekend afternoon at the grill, under some shade trees, with a cold beer and hot dogs with pickles, relish, tomatoes, onion, mustard, and peperoncinos.  Put that image into your head before lunch on a Tuesday, and you'll see why Andrew Purcell again flaunts the Geneva Conventions' rules against cruel and unusual punishment.
