"hey - how U doing?"

**plays shy**

:heart: i hear if she gives in they'll mate for life :nod: :lol: enjoy!



this is the first image in another food series inspired by Play With Your Food. :hungry:
i cook and am really entranced by photographing food b/c of all the colors, textures, shapes you get to play with - and it seems to invoke lots of human natural reaction whether its inciting taste from your visual or just making you view your next grocery store trip a bit more creatively :lol:

these beauties are gords - and you'll see in this series the many fantastic shapes i saw when choosing them from my farmer's market! i could have put eyes on these guys but in this particular image - i really liked how they looked "clean" like this - invoking the emotion from their shape. :floating: their nest is sesame linguini and spinach fettucine pasta. :lol:

technically this image helps me understand why learning my technical manually is imperative. i would like to have had more control over where it blurs and loses focus to avoid any PS work to sharpen - i did have to sharpen the top of the male Swan. :shrug: just a bit but it it did help me see how i am learning and inspiring me to keep on doing so. my next shoots i'll be using manual functions to learn this control. overall i am pleased with these images.

past images in my gallery where i also played with food in this vein:

the Cloves go on vacation [link]
Jazz Night at the Cube [link]
Outside the Ladies Room at the Cube [link]

and lots of other abstract food images or playing with chocolate, ice cream, pasta, etc. :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2005-08-23
Given, sesame linguini and spinach fettucine pasta with gourds would make a delicious dinner for two. Now let's take this a few steps further and look at playing hard to get by `devilicious. A lovely scene of two swans spending a romantic afternoon in their comfy nest under the warm sun. The female seems to be a very shy swan, but the day is still young. A creative arrangment of food we don't see everyday.

Also viewable as our Print of the Day. ( Featured by Thunderstatement )

This picture is amazing! I love how this manages to give a lot of character and life to inaimate objects. When I first saw this in #Photography-First's newest deviations, I thought these were some sort of green ducks :lol: That's what the long 'necks' and little orange stems convey to me.

This is so cute. You definitely got another watch!
I really thought those were two ducks from afar [I know I know, green ducks??!? Don't ask -__-"....] This is really really awesome though!! =]
This is so creative...I wish I could find food that looks like animals!
