Free Stock Photo

My sis in-law is opening a noodle shop. So, it'll become my 'duty' to design a menu for her. The problem is that she doesn't have a decent picture of a bowl of noodle, so I have to quest for a decent picture of a bowl of noodle.

First stop,, a local photographer community portal. I signed up, and search for 'noodle'. Found a couple. But, in order to view them in viewable size (not thumbnail), the portal need to verify my true identity by requesting me to scan my ID and email the scanned ID to them.
(This is not secure practice, although in this case, I trust **NEVER SCAN AND EMAIL YOUR ID CARD TO SOMEONE YOU DON'T KNOW PERSONALLY**)
Anyway, I don't have time to scan my ID, and wait for them to verify me.

So I give uncle Google a call. Most of the results are Royalty-Free Stock Photo, which is not really free, but you have to paid for the picture and then you can use the picture freely.

One result came out, It's a community portal that exchanges 'stock photo'. Free. :) It does need a registration before you can 'download any picture.

I found the noodlelicious noodle picture. :)
