food like nature
if i take more food photos when we are in southern france, it is not because i have a strategy to shoot more food. and it’s not really because food is more beautiful here. it just happens. i think it’s because the food here is so much closer to its natural state, that it still resembles the plant or animal it came from. these grapes, still warm from the sun, are much more part of a vine than they are a fruit sitting in a basket on someone’s counter. it’s part of what we love about being here. the earth creates splendid things in this region, but those splendid things are never very far removed from the earth.
