WIAW – The Luna Edition!
Good morning my dears!
I haven’t done a WIAW in a while, so I’m breaking the pattern this week for two reasons: 1) I’m in Florida, and the produce is just so much prettier than it is back home in Toronto and 2) My camera arrived in the mail and I’m absolutely thrilled with the picture quality I’m getting out of her – (her, that’s right. Her name is Luna the Lumix ^~)
Have you ever heard of trial by fire? In the foodie photography world, I think trial by yogurt is a much more appropriate expression. Nothing is more delicious for breakfast than the tried-but-true yogurt mess: a layer of oats, decadent Chobani, an excessive flurry of cinnamon and some diced apple. MmM! Generally speaking, though, nothing is less attractive to shoot.
Until Luna came along. Check this out:
Gorgeous, right? I’m so glad I’m eating another one of these for breakfast as I’m writing this or else I’d be craving one like crazy.
It wasn’t just beginners luck, either. From there things only got prettier as they became more colorful. Lunch was a celebration of fresh market produce, and Luna rocked it again:
Can you smell the basil? Tomatoes, basil, colorful bell peppers, green onion, sea salt and olive oil. I also enjoyed a protein bar as a snack in the afternoon because I didn’t add my usual beans/chicken/fish/tofu/tempeh, etc, to the salad. It was just too pretty as it was. Definitely a worthy dish in honor this month’s WIAW theme!
I also enjoyed some fruit and a few glasses of tea with Almond Breeze coconut/almond milk blend. I didn’t know that existed so it was a nice surprise to find. There is so much more variety in the States, and it’s so much cheaper than in Toronto! Oh my gosh does it ever blow my mind. I’m bringing back
almost equal parts snacks as souvenirs for my friends ^~
Speaking of souvenirs, because I’m on spring break I’ve had the time to work on something I’ve been imagining for months now: a dreamcatcher. I wanted to make something elegant and whimsical and decorated with Daytona Beach shells and feathers so that I could take a piece of my childhood summers home with me. It’s a work in progress, but I’m having such a great time with it! I’m planning on making more when I’m back home. Here’s a sneak peek of what I have so far:
Questions for you!
Which blogs do you swoon over for their delicious food photography? I need inspiration <3 I love Canelle & Vanille & Sprouted Kitchen.
Have you ever made a dreamcatcher? I think I made my first one at a summer camp when I was very little.
See you soon!
