Together on the vine they grow
Over time they develop
Making a change from green to yellow or red
As the colour changes so does flavour and sweetness
They can be eaten hot or cold, in soups, fried or grilled
Or cooked down and used in a pasta dish, or salad

Starting from the top, the Man Utd bee (1 and 2) – still buzzing around Old Trafford, Manchester as part of #Beeinthecity . next the tin soldier (3), an old tin box i kept cookies in. Red Bowl with soup in comes next (4), for the culinary photographer – Tomato Soup, (5) Trafford Road Bridge, near to Manchester Utd (6) Tomato on a Slate (7) Red Begonias, and (8) Red Bauble on last years Christmas Tree
The Orb was a lighting experiment – and used Red LEDs to brighten up a Glass Sphere.

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!
Some say it begins with
a loaf of bread, nicely sliced – type – to your preference – two slices
next – comes the spread – butter, margarine, salad cream or sandwich spread
dedicated sandwich makers always go for the mayo
when that’s been applied, on goes the salad, lettuce cucumber tomato
If you fancy it, add olives or sweetcorn and then
cover it in your favourite meat before putting the top on
Scouting out the kitchen cupboards
armed with two ciabatta rolls
navigating your way through the meat in the fridge
dark red salami and piquant spiced ham await
with tempting tomato and cool cucumber
in reach in the salad drawer

…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
Take a crisp blue sky
and a gentle breeze
and add a little heat
Sand or Sea is optional
but a mat or blanket – essential
Sandwiches – Tomato or Cucumber
(or if you prefer) Ham or Beef
prepare a little salad
to serve on the plate beneath
Lemonades a nice drink you might want to take
or maybe a smoothie or ice-cream milkshake
The Grown-ups take coffee – or water for tea
in a well lined thermos – away from the bees
For afters – some fruit or perhaps a pie
Chocolate’s a favourite – I don’t want to lie!
but a nice way to finish this picnic – a dream
is a small bowl of strawberries – topped off with ice cream.
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?
Oh Happy and Humble tomato!
In your youth you joined the ranks
of the horticultural army
labouring on your leaves
in the summer sun
Rewards a plenty
as the best recruits are picked
for display in a culinary tattoo
in a Salad or Pasta dish
Numbers in your ranks depleted
but new recruits appear
ready for a new assault
at the summers blue sky
