Postcard Progress

.

A few weeks ago, I invited people to take part in a small project. Having been inspired by a postcard exchange I had taken part in with Stephen MacInnis in May last year, I wanted to do a similar thing again on a slighter larger scale. And so I sent out a collection of cards that I had printed to various corners of the globe, hoping to hear some news of their arrival.

Here are a couple of pictures of a few of their adventures – so exciting to see them in their new spaces..more to come!

Thanks so much to everyone for taking part – this is an ongoing project too, so if you would like me to send you a postcard, get in touch! You can read the initial posts here and here.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

The only thing to do with a very hard week is make a ridiculous retro cake. May I present “Mr Pineapple Upside Down Cake”.

Yum.

(This has nothing to do with anything really but I thought it might make you smile.)

And it wasn’t me who nicked the pineapple shape on the left edge. Seconds before I took the photograph.

You just can’t get the assistants these days..

Loafing around

It suddenly occurred to me this week that if I did more shooting practice indoors using food and things, that it would give me a great excuse to make lots of cakes, breads, and other delicious things!

.

The un-baked bread was flatter than my usual bread, and had a slight sheeny skin..maybe it’s because of the olive oil?

.

.

Ok, now don’t laugh. Mr Loaf turned out a knubbly, odd looking thing. “Rustic” ?! .

.

.

.

But he tasted so good!

There has been a feeling of seasonal change in the air over the past few days, which maybe explains the Autumnal themes creeping out in my indoor sessions this week.

I’ve not tried much food related photography before – this was great fun! It’s teaching me a lot about working with natural light and colour..
