Ten (well, eleven) favourite images


Look, it was quite hard to pick just ten favourite images and, in the end, I couldn't. Quite.

So eleven it is.

I seem to take hundreds of photographs for each post...the act of going through them, deleting merrily along the way, has taken a lot longer than initially anticipated. Clearly I have a thing for a) diagonals and b) shadows. Some of the ones I was contemplating were quite obscure. I like obscure. Always have. But, in the interests of keeping this food-focussed, I settled on things you've already seen.

Thanks to Vegeyum and Holler for the kick needed. I can de-frag now. With a cup of tea.

Ahhh.

(Thus that sneaky eleventh photograph of tea.)

I know I threatened to 'tag' a few people recently with this one, but it's entirely up to you. Play along (and clean up your filing in the process) if you like!

Poetry in pictures once more :)

Beautiful, beautiful.
It's the shadows I love especially. Where do you take your photographs?

You have made radishes look like pure love. They are marvelous.

Oh my god, they are all so beautiful. So gentle. So amazingly respectful of the subject. I love your affinity with light. How beautiful to see all of these photos together.

Ahh, your macro is so incredible! What do you shoot with? I do love your use of light.

Great photos. Everything is so pure and simple.

Oh, those green beans! Could they be any more perfect? I think not.

I live in Tasmania - big potato producer - but have never actually seen a purple potato. They're beautiful but somehow ... wrong to my eye. I have some strict and strange colour rules when it comes to food.

I love the shadows in your photos: they are very evocative. You chose a nice set out of your wonderful collection.

10 does seem like asking for great self discipline but these are gorgeous as always - some are such perfect representations of food like your eggs and some are so strange looking with the shadows and angles that they look other than food like your alien city that you purport to be mushrooms :-)

People, get deleting, I say. If you've not done this, go to it now, if for no other reason than you want a tidier computer.

Wendy - I take the photos in the kitchen. There's a huge window that lets in floods of natural light right where I chop...I'm scared that if and when we move (eventually) I will end up with a lightless kitchen bench. Actually, it will present new challenges, so scratch the scared bit. Maybe.

Cmoore, it's a point and shoot camera - a Panasonic DMX FX07 - with a Japanese Lumix lens and an excellent Macro function. Small and light and easy to weild around a working kitchen!

Kris - I know exactly what you mean. To me, they look, when sliced, as though they've been tie-dyed. They are all natural, I can assure you - Peruvian in origin and not at all GM'd. Odd, though, that deep, dark shade of blue.
