"It's not the camera that takes a great photograph, it is the photographer"
Firstly, I would like to sincerely apologise for being so late with posting the contributions to the July "Food" Photography Challenge. Things have been hectic around here, leading up to and after my vacation.
As always, thank you to all of you who have contacted me about the monthly photograph challenges, and an enormous WELL DONE to those of you who have posted their interpretations. I continue to be totally amazed at the quality and imagination that you have each shown in your results. They are all so enjoyable!!
Below is a list of each of the participants and their work:
Zhu from Corre Es mi Destino - Pig Day in Ottawa
Chica from Photo-Projectz - Kiwi Fruit
Liss from A Memory Forever - Blueberry and Coconut Cakes
Michelle Dawn from Rusin Roundup - Taco Goode
Ingrid from Boricua in Texas - Bird Food
Dale from Little Red Planet - Beer and Vegemite
Michelle from Crow's Feet - Potted Rabbit
Mirage as Usual - The Philippines dish of Sinigang
Matthew W - Coke
Babylonezoo - Gateau d'anniversaire
Muse from Xanadu - Pancake Syrup
(I do hope I have included everybody here. If I have missed off your interpretation, please drop me a message I will add it to the list)
Once again, your interpretations are all truly brilliant and individual - from oozing chocolate to fruit and birdseed, from beer and Vegemite to fabulous recipes, from a pig to a rabbit. Thank you all for your contributions and I do hope you take a few moments to have a look at and comment on each others' fine work.
My contribution for this challenge takes me back to my holiday in Portugal. One morning in the first week we took the opportunity to have a wander around a local town called Lagos. During our wander around this beautiful seaside town, we stumbled upon a small undercover food market.
The market was exploding with the most amazing aromas, bursting with the most vibrant colours and bustling with the most interesting people.
The photograph below is of a wonderful old lady, sat counting the profits of her hard work surrounded by the fruits and vegetables that she has so caringly cultivated.
Tomorrow I will set a simple photo challenge for August, and look forward to seeing your interpretations.
