Salford, 6th August
So, here we are, with a noble invention
A combination of ingredients
Now brought together, with love tween two slices of bread
Daintily paired, meats and vegetables
When required – sauces or spices
It’s what you might call – a matter of taste
Combining flavour and texture – the eater
Happy in the knowledge, theres not much washing up!

Bella Italia , Lowry outlet mall, Salford Quays
Take a pizza base
Make it nice and thick
Cover it in the richest tomatoes
You can lay your hands on
Red bell peppers and juicy onions
add meats of your choosing
Or even more veg
Throw in a little pesto if you wish
But don’t forget the cheese
Fold it up like a Cornish pastie
And let it catch a Neapolitan tan
Before cracking open it’s golden crust as
treasures are uncovered and steam released
Releasing the tasty fillings that lie inside

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
An acrostic by inky, in response to the daily post prompt
Some people – call it the ground
One of natures building blocks
If you looked at it – from deep below – you would call it
Several different creatures – they call it home
On occasion , they climb out of their earthy house for a drop of sun
Insects , worms and nocturnal mammals
Like living underground
Some plants – enjoy being
Outside, like trees and bushes, whilst others like
Indoors, mostly because of the weather – all are
Linked by the substance around their roots
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!
Sourced from around the world
picked from the best places of the east
infusing meat and vegetables with
colours smells and flavours that bring an extra special something,creating a dish to bring your tastebuds some attention
yelling out the message – “This dish is tasty!”
source of growth
our garden plants depend on it
its home for all sorts of life
like worms, beetles and ants
such an important base needs nutrients
on certain mornings , water and fertiliser
is added , to let the seedlings and bulbs
lift their flowers into the sky and take root
some gardeners plant vegetables whilst
on season, others plant fruit trees
in certain climates, the soil will allow you to grow
local delicacies, such as bananas and pineapple
Athought from inky in response to the prompt
Give your love a sweet Valentine invitation
on a piece of rice paper parchment
send it with hand picked roses
made from flavoured marzipan
and those vegetables she doesn’t like on her salad
will taste o so much sweeter when she finds they’re strawberries

…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.
