“Savoring time” is a reflection on that most elusive medium– the thing we never have enough of. We race against it, squander it, watch it fly, try to use it wisely, then eventually, accept that we will run out of it.

Even though we can’t literally stop time, these eight images capture delicious food moments, and, if only for a second, freeze them, so we can revisit and savor them, as often, and for as long as we want.
