Iron Chef Michael Symon indulges my one-armed paparazzi shoot
We attended the James Beard Foundation's Celebrity Chef Tour dinner series in Kona, Hawaii featuring Iron Chef Michael Symon and Jonathan Waxman. Michael was great fun - you could hear his distinctive laughter whenever he was in the vicinity! He also indulged me with my one-armed self portrait which amused him... Except that I didn't account for the shadow from the light crossing from my arm back across my face. I had a couple of shots like the one to the left, which we laughed about. I tried putting the flash on, but it didn't work, and luckily, the last shot (below) came out great. You can probably tell from both of our faces we were cracking up by then. Chef can cook up smiles as well as he can incredible food.
