I knew it was coming – the creation of a masterpiece.
something from the remains of the Christmas feast – to warm everybody up
chef using concoctions to heighten the flavour of the dish
in first went the potatoes (roast and boiled), and then the onion – accompanied by a drop of oil.
then went the parnsip, turnip and swede. followed by the carrots
the meat from the leftovers cubed and joined in the heat by a stock cube
and as you listened to the pan – the contents started to bubble
half way there – and with the turn of the veg – it started to speak
squeaking away with a sizzle
Perhaps you say, it could have magical properties
as the recipe has been passed down the generations for years
notably, it reaches parts your chemists cold cures dont
and it’s tasty to the person that’s eating it
changes to little things like seasonings, are expected through time but
everybody knows the core of chicken, onion and carrot
and mum and dad know – they’ll have empty bowls and seconds asked for
In response to https://ceenphotography.com/cees-challenges/fun-foto-challenge/
Starting off with a Colourful one, taken at a session of the photography group Basic Clicks – Six Colourful Carrots on Blue Canvas!
here’s a couple of interesting Cutlery pieces – the first is of four forks against a wall, – i liked the shadows created in this pic.
Combination of ideas here, with a twist – Spirals of Cutlery , set on canvas.
Still life shot of various vegetables set out on a slate Cheeseboard, some onions (white and red), a tomato, a cut Cabbage and the return of one of those Carrots we saw earlier
Now fellow wordpressors might have seen this one before, but as its cees photochallenge, i thought i’d put it on here – not for the wonderful bridge (that’s the wrong letter folks!!!) but for those fluffy white marshmallow clouds , over looking the quayside at Salford, attached to the Manchester ship Canal.
Last but not least, here’s a close up of a cornflower – i like this one because of the colour!

17th February 2017
…Following last weeks close up food shots, we continued the theme with a heap of vegetables to produce some wonderful still life artwork. The vegetables were set on a Square slate and against a marble backdrop
No Auto today! each picture was taken manually – with me setting up angles and close ups of the food stuffs.
Camera used was my able Bridge camera : Sony DSC H-300 with zoom. Great camera with some wonderful zoom functions.
Trio of stews and soups – Cabbage , Onion, Carrot
Three fruits : Avacado, Apple, Lemon
sizzle in the Noonday Sun
awaiting a bap
readiness with aroma
as the coals they glow
Seasonings ? Brown or Red
Little people line up
and over the grill
the most important question
onions or pickles?
