It has occurred to me that I have been derelict in my duties as a Blogger. Never once have I photographed my breakfast, nor lunch, nor dinner, nor a midday snack. Not even a midnight raid on the refrigerator.
Such a glaring oversight in this new age of social interaction. Well friends, that is about to change! A new dawn, if you will.
No looking back...
Forgive my rudeness for not supplying this image sooner.
I present to you...Breakfast! In this scientifically advanced era of instant photography filters, I wrestled with the perfect enhancement. I settled with a light "Focal"filter, to highlight my breakfast, then a simple "Light" frame to outline the importance of the first meal of the day.
Then I added my Divine Theatre watermark to make it all official and binding. See?
LOL! Honestly, I just thought it was pretty. Mixed fruit with nutmeg and cinnamon.
I will happily remain a member of the Counterculture and keep my breakfast to myself. Unless it is really pretty.
Like this is.
HEHE - ya people love to photograph their food! Sadly my cup of yogurt and mug of tea at my desk at work isn't really ready for its closeup yet!.ReplyDelete
lol As I sat to eat I was like, "Wait a minute! This...THIS is ART!"Delete
You are hilarious my Friend and Yes, Pretty Food should be Celebrated and Shared! I Confess I have Photographed Food for my Blog on many occasions when it has just looked Pretty enough to not want to forget... it is said we eat with our Eyes first, so True, I'd Love your Breakfast Presentation! And since I'm trying to make significant Lifestyle changes to accommodate the dreaded Diabetes, such things Inspire me for healthy meal preparation and options... Dawn... The BohemianReplyDelete
I am so sorry you have to endure such a scary health issue. This is really tasty. I have it every other day. Sometimes I just mash a banana and add cinnamon and nutmeg. It's so tasty I feel like it should be bad for me. lolDelete
Andie, I would love to follow you around for a day!ReplyDelete
You are always welcome. xoDelete
Charming, as always, Andie! Looks GOOD too! ;-)ReplyDelete
I'm a lot like you, if not nearly as gifted. I have to confess that I even make the effort to arrange the DISHES I've just washed as attractively as I possiby can in the drainer basket.
In my old age I've become an Obsessive-Compulsive about wanting EVERYThiNG around me to be color-coordinated and artistically arranged.
After all, I'm 76, live alone, can't get out on my own anymore, do all my own cooking and washing up, and must spend a great deal of time in the house, so why NOT insist that everything look as beautiful as it possibly can? IT certainly encourages me to carry on as long as I possibly can.
And while I'm at it, I must THANK YOU for putting me on to Craigslist. In the past few moinths I've found several really good things that looked as though they have always belonged in my Family of Furniture and Accessories. Among them a brass bed warmer c. 1820 that traveled overland from Massachuessetts to Wisconsin by OXCART before it landed here! We had just such a bed warmer gracing our fireside when I was young –– a genuine family antique, which very sadly got lost in ne of many moves, so finding this one –– virtually identical to ours –– felt like a REUNION with an old and dear friend.
I also found a three-tiered mahogany pie stand, or mufineer, also from the early nineteenth century. Meant originally to sit in the dining room, and be passed around the able at breajfast and afternoon tead, it now holds extra wash cloths, and a fish-shaped ceramic soap dish in my newly remodeled master bath –– the perfect complement to what-serendipitously-turned-out-to-be a handsome little space with a look reminiscent of of Colonial Seaside New England. Fitting enough, since some of my ancestors on father's side were Sea Captains running three-masted clipper ships all arpund the world in the China Trade –– among other things.
Life is such a great adventure when your are blest with imagination and the urge to find adventure in making your own little corener of the world as lovely as it could be.
I thank God every day that I live in te USA –– a country incredibly rich with abundant resources at affordable prices –– IF you know what you're looking for, and have the patience to wait for it to appear at an opportune time.
None of the items I've bought recently cost more than fifty dollars –– less than a third of what I'd have had to pay had I found them in a "good" antiques shop.
So THREE CH:EERS for CRAIGSLIST! ;-)
The thrill of the hunt from your very favorite chair! There is always something waiting, isn't there?Delete
Fortunately, yes. There IS, Andie. It's a lot like going fishing. You never what you mjght catch, –– or even IF you're going to catch anything at all ––, but the PROCESS of going out with rod, bait and tackle is always exciting, –– IF you like fishing, of course.Delete
I don't fish. You may scoff, but I cannot endure the whole notion of piercing its flesh, then letting it go without first aid!
I have to confess that although I'm not a hipster I do photograph most of my food. Lovely setting.ReplyDelete
Andrew! So very nice to see you! (((hug))) You can make a bowl of oatmeal look good.Delete
I also found a three-tiered mahogany pie stand, or mufineerReplyDelete
