This will suit Jinky as he likes to photograph food then eat it.  :-*

And as he has just come back from India he is no doubt brimming with ideas for colourful and tasty dishes ;)

I too had to think of Jinky, the minute I saw the new challenge.

Food is always a bit of a problem for me somehow, I'm better at eating it, than photographing it. But I'll see what I can come up with.

Re, it does not have to be food, it can be utensils etc.

I'm sure you will come up with something  :)

Re, it does not have to be food, it can be utensils etc.

I'm sure you will come up with something  :)

Washing machine? (Just finished a load.)
Toaster?               (Some interesting crumbs.)
Cutlery?                (Done to death, but still some possibilities.)

Not much choice, as we have a small, functional kitchen.

But don't worry Mike, I'll come up with something. And as there are no restrictions on pp, I can always 'tart it up.'

Porridge! (Saves stirring on the hob.) But it is very boring to photograph, as I eat it 'with nothing.' (The porridge, not me.)
So I can't photograph melting sugar or syrup or whatever people have with their porridge.

Made a delicious, goodlooking North African 'beef soup with apricots,'  yesterday, and still did not manage a good shot. Maybe I was too hungry?

Shot some tomatoes earlier in the week (all over walls and ceiling now of course!), that did come out well. Played around with the photos and, unless I can find something more original, they'll have to do.

Stuck for ideas just now. Should have taken a shot of my pig`s head the other day. Made a tenderloin pork pie with apple and balck pudding in and shaped tyhe pastry into a pigs head with snout etc. Now why didn`t I take a shot? :uglystupid2:

All my shots of cooked or baked food were disappointing. Didn't want to do the kitchen utensils (Wouldn't dare show the inside of our oven, after seeing Matt's!!!), didn't want to go 'green' as even raw vegetables don't come 'out' somehow. So here I am with a few tomatoes.

Tomatoes.

Thought the other half was going to bake a cake today, but alas no (  :( no cake ), so had to get the black tiles out again.

In the rush between doing a Mother`s Day sunday dinner as my youngest was on shifts I thought I`d have another go at a fruit sculpture. Cannot claim originality for this one as I saw this done a while back when I first started trying a few but I like the challenge of working out how to do them. Made out of two small bananas I just used a be to draw the cut out figures, a sharp kitchen knife to cut and a few cocktail sticks to stand it up with which I later cloned out. That was the only photoshop used apart from a bit of burning here and there for it`s "coat". Great fun - have a go sometime.

Never done 'toad in the hole.' Hubby used to make it occasionally.

OB, You disappoint me.
