Found Art: Lax Chefs

I've been lucky enough to be acquainted with some people who do with a lens things I can only dream about. Snooping around some albums, I came across this photo which sort of romanticizes a chef's break time. I can almost feel that moment of clarity that hits when you step out of the kitchen onto the outside to light a cigarette up and decompress from the hectic noise inside. Commiserating with colleagues and BSing about the customer who came in and asked for Garlic Shrimp with no Garlic, easy on the butter, and with a side of ketchup. Oh and substitute the shrimp for scallops.

Thisisnotaphotograph has some amazing shots of everyday life. Action and stills. Worth a browse. Or ten.
