Do you prefers fruits or vegetables? For me, it's always been the vegetables. Even when we lived on the equator where pineapples, papayas, mangoes and bananas were plentiful I still preferred carrots and broccoli, onions and tomatoes.
Since I started blogging I also started taking pictures of food. It's an art I hope to improve upon and more difficult than I had thought. The angles, the lighting, the temperature of the food - everything matters. I've learned that if something is piping hot the steam ruins the photo.
So on this Mosaic Monday, hosted by Mary at the Little Red House, I've chosen to feature some of the things I'm looking forward to this summer - freshly picked vegetables, either from my garden or farmer's markets. Yum!

mmmmm - is that soup on the left? It all looks very tempting!ReplyDelete
I like more veg raw than cooked. When we sit down to a meal my family sometimes ask 'where's YOUR veg, Mum?' I'd eaten mine in the kitchen whilst preparing and cooking theirs! xxReplyDelete
Yes I am also more a veggi gal than a fruit gal. I have tried to take pictures of food and my never turn out as good as your. Perfect, the mosaic is wonderful. Take care:)ReplyDelete
Oh, what a yummy beautiful looking mosaic. I too love the fresh veggies of summer!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
I've rarely met a fruit I don't like!ReplyDelete
What a great mosaic. I'm admiring the sliced beet, onion/orange plate...lovely combination.
Your sliced cucumbers look like little boats ready to get sail! Everything looks divine - great mosaic!ReplyDelete
You're doing pretty good so far on the food photography! Its tough..I'm learning too. Lighting is so important and so hard to get.ReplyDelete
And I like my fruits and veggies equally and sometimes at the same time!
That beet and orange dish is a mosaic in itself! Yummy photos all!ReplyDelete
I think you are doing very well with your photography, it certainly made my mouth water! Wonderful presentation, thanks for sharing. . .ReplyDelete
I'm a fruit gal, but you make veggies look very appetizing. Great photo! I have learned that a little butter spread over something warm looks heavenly. :DReplyDelete
It all looks delicious to me. ValerieReplyDelete

I love food and to cook.
Great photos Lorrie!
Yes, Paris is tres magnifique! It is the most gorgeous city I have ever been to! Your food photos look amazing! I did an earlier posting on a bruchetta recipe, and when I took the pictures, they all just looked "blaaa"! I love summer veggies, too, and just made a big batch of tzatziki the other day. yummy!
Wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing. :)ReplyDelete
