So my goal today was to post my October print of the month, but I am so completely obsessed with my friend Bethany's photography that I can't decide which one is my favorite. (Um, I'm also not even sure that she sells her prints, but I figure since I know her I can hopefully work something out!). There's that amazing layer cake above...
These sublime pastries from a local market here, which I love because of how the white fades out along the edges.
A homemade zucchini pizza that speaks to everything I love about cooking and eating—vivid produce, time put into something so obviously worth the effort, taking a moment to savor it before devouring it.
OMG (sorry, I can't help it!) and then there is this close up of a free form berry pie.
And this demure turnover that I think speaks to the time of year that we are currently in. So, I have to make a choice. To be honest, I haven't had this strong of a reaction to photographs in a while and it's making me really happy. I think it might have to do with the fact that I actually know the person behind the lens (and just so you know, Bethany also takes lovely landscape shots and portraits, and in her day job, she works as an editor at DIY)and it's fascinating to see the world through her eyes. Plus, her food photography is just stunning and it makes me both appreciate her talent with the camera and want to eat everything she captures. That is just the perfect combination.
If you have a vote, please let me know. I think I'm between the cake, the pastries and the in your face free form pie...I will see if I can make a decision over the weekend.
