Thursday Challenge: Food -

"Daily Bread"
$50 unframed - LUCAS GALLERY

The weekly theme at Thursday Challenge this time out is food. I had just gone around with the camera a few days ago and got more than a few shots that could qualify here. What I particularly enjoyed about this one is the way the reflections in the glass turned out under the conditions at the time. Except for a bit of cropping, there is no manipulation used came straight from the camera to this daily post. Funny, it looks just like the sort of shenanigans that I'm usually up to! :D

Taking photos through windows usually bornes a quite new perspective in pictures. The reflections of the surroundings are almot more interesting than the object being photographed.
I like these kind of pics. They show much more than one is used to when looking at a photo.

Yes, I know that you're right about that and I like them too. I've only recently begun to train my eye to look for the variety of interesting results from reflections. I have another in a working file as we speak. So, thanks for the comments of the way, you're up VERY late. Are you having a pajama party?

No pajama party, Mick. I made templates for Finnish blogs of my co-bloggers in the night and it's so interesting that the time flies doing it. Besides, it's very satisfying when I manage to solve some problem with the code.
Weird. But some people knit, some people do coding.
Luckily poeple are kind enough to use my templates. I make them unique, from my photos, or theirs, and my paintings.

It's fun. But it leads to lack of sleep:)

I like this picture too and the same reasons you've already spoken: The reflections in the glass and so...

I also like bread but it has to be dark. Did you notice, that Daily Bread's breads look a bit like worms?! Very interesting indeed... ;-)

Please give us our daily bread, and also some nice pictures to look at while we're eating it. (And a glass of good wine...)

Being an old road musician I'm no stranger to lack of sleep and being busy into the wee hours of the night! Of course, I always say, have fun ... there's plenty of time for sleep after we put in our 3 score + 10 on this good earth. :)

LOL ... thanks for the comment (blush) and, no, I hadn't noticed that the bread looks like worms. They do, don't they? Your vision is often dark and beautiful, elegia. :D

Don't forget the cheese ... perhaps a dish of olive oil treated with just a hint of garlic and herbs. A lovely sangiovese would be perfect. Although a beaujolais on the dry side is always fun in the summer time and I'm certain you have a number of delightful French Wines to suggest. :)

Why not a Côte du Rhone? Something not too elaborated, making us feel like on the country side, with a loaf of bread and some good cheese on a table not far away. The glass of wine quite near, of course. And a bottle on the table next to us, in case we need to refill our glass. Ineluctable.

A Cote du Rhone, then?... and why not says he! :)
