Photo Tag

The lovely Holler of Tinned Tomatoes has tagged me to do a Top Ten Photos meme.  My task is to pick the ten food photographs I am most proud of and share them again with you all.  I’m finding it more difficult than I had imagined.  It’s really hard to consider the photographs in a purely aesthetic way and not to let my memories of how good the dish tasted or how much fun I had that night taint my decision.  Also, when is a photo actually a good photo and not just a really pretty cabbage??

Anyway, here they are.  My favourites.

The rest of my food photos can be found on my Flickr page here

Your turn now.  This is an open invitation to all you food bloggers to complete this meme.  Look forward to seeing your posts.  🙂

  1. Absolutely lucious! How do you get such nice clean white backgrounds? I find that in the summer I seem to end up with more dark contrast in the background than in winter!

  2. It’s the fleeting, pale, cool-edged quality of Northern Light that you capture so well, Wendy, and really, your photographs of food have always made me incredibly hungry. But, seen all together in, this way, the clarity and purity of each shot – no fussiness, just ingredients speaking for themselves – makes them look incredibly healthy, too.

    It’s precisely that mixture that makes you one of the very best, visually-speaking.

    Oh, that kitchen shot. I keep coming back to that one.

  3. Gorgeous photos Wendy and they do bring back memories of most of the posts (I had to check a few) – your photos are so clear and beautifully lit – and so tantalising that I just want to reach out and grab some

  4. Kelsie – Look forward to seeing that post!

    Lysy – Well, I use white plates and I usually put them right next to a window which is not in direct sunlight. That way I get lots of light without dark shadows. Winter is tough. I leave for work in the dark and return in the dark. All of the above photos are from the lighter months. 🙂

    Lucy – Blush. Thank you very much. That means a lot coming from the beautiful photographer that you are.

    Johanna – That’s exactly the effect I wanted to achieve! delighted. 🙂

  5. Beautiful, beautiful photos Wendy. I especially love the photos of the plums, I think it is the contrast or should I say juxtaposition of textures. They look so cozy sitting there!

  6. Wendy…gorgeous photos! You must have a good natural light source in your house? Curses to my old, dark, home…

    And I am beyond happy to hear you got your very own puppy dog!!!!! Every girl should have a dog; some how, I ended up with five. At once.

    He’s adorable, with a precious face. Hugs from me to him!

  7. David – Thanks! I’ve got some growing in the garden right now. Looking forward to eating this again.

    Holler – Thank you! I love the plum one too. My pockets were bursting!

    Stephanie – Hello! Thank you. He’s wonderful, isnt’ he? Looks a wee bit like Donegal the pup you gave me too!

  8. Hi Wendy, I found this one difficult too. I love your picks though, that courgettes flower is gorgeous and your holiday kitchen at the end.

  9. Helen – Thank you! My courgette flowers aren’t nearly as nice this year unfortunately. 😦

    Pia – Thank you! That’s perhaps my very favourite too. 🙂
