Lately, we find ourselves scrolling through hundreds of photos each day on Instagram, thanks to the nowwidespread use of our #EEEEEATS hashtag. Generally, the quality of the imagesbeing tagged is incredible - it's tough to tell the amateur photographers from the more professional ones. But there are also some of you out there that could use some help.
To demonstrate, we've decided to showcase some of the worst images that have crossed our path recently, in the hope that we can help fix some of the most egregious offenders looking for #EEEEEATS Approved status.
If you notice one of your photos here (we removed any profile identifiers soas to avoid public shaming) please know that we mean all of this in good fun.Certainly don't let us dissuade you from posting your photos. A bad #EEEEEATS photo is better than no #EEEEEATS photo at all.

That's Toro's $22spoonful of caviar, uni, quail egg, and Iberico jamon. It literally explodes with both color and flavor, but you definitely wouldn't know it from this photo. You might well have just written a text description via your notepad and posted that.
This is a classic case of "not every meal needs to be on Instagram." We can't tell if it's a filter, restaurant lighting, or radiation that is making this chicken pink, and we really don't want to know. Whatever it is, nobody is jealous of your dinner.
OK, look. We totally understand that you're excited to be at Narcissa, eating some deliciousvegetables. However, you cannot go posting a photo that looks like a bowl of fried dicks and not get called out for it. We know that they're delicious carrots. But they look like dicks. Find a more photogenic vegetable to kill with the flash please.
Under no circumstance should photos be posted of a dish that could be mistaken for baby poop. Steinthal has been changing a lot of diapers these days, and this looks way too familiar for all the wrong reasons. A big bowl of brown slop doesn't belong on the internet, especially if it's out of focus.
We're pretty sure this is a photo of some form of cocktail, but we're having trouble seeing it. Does a night vision app exist? If so, use it next time.
Posting a photo of DJ Rackalicious dropping the beat from his Pioneer CD player doesn't qualify for #EEEEEATS, even if he happens to be blowing up the bass from inside of your restaurant. All it does is make us wonder what exactly goes on in your restaurant, and what kind of wraps you specialize in.
