Our daily bread…

By Silver Blue


Some of the best shots I’ve ever taken weren’t staged. They simply came to me, in a flash, such as this empty bread basket at a luncheon where I was attempting to amuse myself while the speaker was engaged in discourse on a topic I couldn’t follow. These are the shots that nourish not only my body, but my mind as well.

Sometimes, repetitive patterns catch my eye (the OH! Something Shiny! syndrome). While I tend to eschew photographing plated lunches because they’re so cookie cutter, there are times it’s been what captured my interest. Take yet another plated lunch and you’ll get…

I’m serious here. Who takes photos of someone eating, of a mostly empty plate, and of a fork going back in for more? That would be… me.

Finally… a photo that warms my heart. Taken in 2006, my mom and dad.talk about nourishing the soul.

Still in love after almost 44 years. I love you both.
