{deciphering abstract fotos – volume one}

11 Nov

can you guess what this is a fotograph of?!  when i saw it, i just HAD to run and get my camera and capture these images…

the only manipulating i did to these fotos was in post-production, and the only thing i did was add contrast… and if someone can figure out what i actually fotographed, i will be so completely shocked.  i think it will also be fun to see what kind of responses i can get!

😀

{organic golden kiwi}

22 Jul

goldenkiwi-1

golden kiwis are not the same as regular green kiwis you see in the stores….. i mean, of course they aren’t, right?! – they’re being featured on food & foto 😉

originating in china, golden kiwis are now mostly from new zealand, and they blow regular kiwi out of the water!  {sorry, kiwi}

their thin skin is different from the regular kiwi – smooth and hairless with little freckles throughout.  they ripen just like regular kiwi, so look for one that slightly gives to the tender touch…

goldenkiwi-2

the flavour is similar, but the golden kiwi boasts a less-acidic quality and taste. they have almost a pineapple flavour… and i just LOVE THEM!!! Continue reading
