Default September 2011 Monthly Challenge: Food and Drink

Using my winning entry last month as a starting point I suggest "Food and Drink" as a topic. Basically a still life that includes some food or drink. Below is an example. Remember, within 90 days and sized to 800 pixels as usual. Have fun with this one.

Can I have a cup of that? Sure looks good!

I'll have to think about this one, still lifes are always difficult for me. On the other hand, might be a good excuse to cook something interesting this month.

I will give it a try and kick it off this mouth.


Although food and drink are not the center of the photo it should still qualify I believe.

A camera is a machine of light and time with the purpose of capturing a luminous moment. Like the eye it is a tool of the mind.

Very nice DAZ, the drink does let it fit the category.

Not sure if this qualifies or not, but this Hummingbird sure does seem to think that the Jewelweed is both food & drink!

I've been so busy at work that photographic opportunities have been few and far between however I think this qualifies ! It was taken recently off the street - as I walked past this little street restaurant I noticed a door that led to the street-side kitchen and took a few shots through the open doorway.

Went to Put-In-Bay this past Saturday. This caught my eye at the Boardwalk. Great Lobster Bisque! DL with the DA 50-200
