Social Experiment: #shootmylunch to commemorate 11.11.11, Hyde Park Sydney (11 Nov 2011)

Twitter hashtag: #shootmylunch

11 lunches unite for the 11.11.11

A big thank you to everyone that managed to find the time to visit me in Hyde Park between 12 noon til 1 pm today to have their photograph taken with their lunch. Your photo is now recorded as part of the Simon Food Favourites social experiment for the special day of 11 November 2011. I hope to do something similar next year on the 12 December 2012 aka 12.12.12 at 12 noon — I wonder if I'll get 12 people for it too. Mark in your diaries now. My lunch today was from Boom Banana which I think make a pretty good chicken schnitzel sandwich. Morning tea was from Caffé Due Mondi at around 11.11 am just to add a few more special elevens to my day. It was certainly an eventful day for me which now comes to an end as I blog post this at 11.11 pm. You can never have too many Legs Elevens in your life.
