Instagram is a home where photos live. There are various “species” of photos in this vibrant photo universe and one of them are food photos. People like to take a pic of a meal before eating it because sometimes it’s a little colorful masterpiece lying there on the plate, and sometimes it’s not, but hey…the beauty is in the eyes of the observer and taste is different from person to person so there is no room to argue about that. In the gallery below check out some cool and weird members of this “species” of photos coming from Germany… or Germen foods that Germans adore so much they’ll put them on the Instagram!
