What’s Eating Your Phone?

I get out quite a bit, and sometimes do not have my trusty Sony camera with me, so like most I will use my phone to snap a few photos for Facebook, or to remind me of something later. Generally this has to do with dining or tippling. I thought it might be fun to pull off a few photos from the phone and share those today in a bit we will now call What’s Eating Your Phone?

Remember, these are taken with a phone and not of superior quality. If you have a cool photo on your phone, send it our way to steven@cravedfw.com, we might just have some cool prize waiting for you. Or not.   Continue reading
