> If you bought a nice meal, I fail to see the point in showing it off, unless you are specifically saying "wow, this place has great food!".

I don't understand your comment at all. What else would you be saying when you show a picture of nice food other than "this food is great"? I'm not in the habit of posting food photos but I've never understood the hysteria around it on places like HN.




"Look at the taste that I have, in choosing this experience for myself", or "Look what I'm doing right now!"


"Look at the taste that I have, in choosing this experience for myself"

I cannot remember thinking that about others but maybe I don't follow the same people as you.

"Look what I'm doing right now!"

Isn't this just like a smaller version of Show HN?

I mean: you make something, you post it and someone else chimes in with ideas or (hopefully) constructive criticism?

Is there any reason that I cannot see why making food isn't a form of making that we can be proud of?

No, but we were talking about why people post pictures of food that they buy, not that they make.


Making something yourself is about pride of creation and ability. Some people want to show that off.
