I take pictures of food.  Often.  And it’s not just a snapshot when I do it… it might take 15 or 20 shots using various camera settings and lighting angles to be satisfied with the photo shoot before I can actually begin eating the food I just took pictures of.  I did it this morning.  Twice.

I’ve never really thought about it as a creative outlet though.  But this morning I realized that my silly food photos help me work my creative brain and makes me happy to see the results.  (Which is why I’m writing about it here, of course.)  And I know ya’ll are dying to ask why I take pictures of food, right?  Glad you asked.  LOL!  As you know I have another blog (Journey to a Healthier Me) about weight loss and healthy living.  That blog often includes recipes and recipes are much more fun with pictures, right?  Plus it’s fun to show off food porn on the message boards too.

So here’s a sampling of this morning’s photo shoot.

Low Carb Banana Nut Muffins (from the same recipe, just baked in muffin pan instead)

And a couple from the past — turkey sandwich with a side of fresh strawberries and below, an experiment in making fermented cabbage.
