Vegetables are a must on a diet.  I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread and pumpkin pie. - Jim Davis

Did you know that June is National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month?  I decided to celebrate with a still life (using light painting), and selected a bunch of produce simply because it looked interesting and beautiful.

Only then - after the fruits and veggies sat for their portrait - did I try to figure out what to do with it all.  Wouldn’t a ‘Photographer’s Cookbook’ be a great idea?  Gather ingredients simply because they look great together, take the photograph, and then come up with creative recipes for the ingredients.
