The Mini Challenge 108 is Food or Drink

There's just no way around it, we spend much of our lives involved in activities involving food. Planning meals, shopping for ingredients, worrying about eating what we should instead of what we like, preparing, cleaning up, or simply dining out at our favorite place. Most of our celebrations involve food or drink along with lots of family and friends. So for this challenge you can enter up to 3 images that include food or drink as a primary element.

It can be a favorite desert -

or fruit -

or just your morning coffee (Diet Coke in my case) -

992157553_AftQu-M.jpg

They don't have to be still life shots like this -

Your images DO NOT have to be like the ones I've shown. It could be a meal with friends, preparing food in the kitchen, a celebration centered around a meal, or anything you like. The only rule is that Food and/or Drink has to be a significant element in the shot.

This challenge will begin now and ends at 7:00 am EST on October 30th.

See this link for additional Mini-Challenge rules.

I had to choose this topic since I've been working in the attic all day and am starving!:D I'm going to eat now. Hope you'll enjoy the challenge.

    Thanks Linda. I originally had the idea that I was going to use some other images as textures to add to this. That's why there's so much white space on the left. Just never got around to it.

    Love the colors here and the lighting/textures in the second. Ok, it's probably obvious to everyone else, but what is that second one?

    Orange peel - specifically, Clementine. I originally took it for the WTH challenge, but some of the commenters thought it was too obvious. :D

    Linda - Really nice set of photos. The apples look to be back lit with window light and then some warmer light camera right? Am I close? They really look good. The others make me want to get out to our city's museum. I keep forgetting that they host a number of events throughout the year with people in character. There's a working black smith shop there as well. Not sure if I could do as well as you have but it would be fun trying.

    Edan - Welcome to Dgrin!!! Thanks for participating. Great set of entries you've got there. I love the paprika shot, nice DOF, color and textures. The banana hat cracks me up.rolleyes1.gif

    Lauren - You're gonna think I'm crazy, but when I first glanced at your post I thought the tent was on fire! What a beautiful setting to share a meal in (now that I know it's not burning down). I especially like the generations shot.
