Maelstrom of margarine


I am not a morning person. At the time that I took this picture, I was sitting at the kitchen table and wishing that I could still be in bed and finishing off yet another happy dream.

So I pointed the lens down at this oil-laden landscape in the hope that some photographic silliness would help jump-start my day. I don't think I succeeded, but I really like this picture for reasons I cannot explain.

Your turn - 2 parts:
  • What three words cross your mind as you see this picture?
  • Please suggest other breakfast foods that might look nice - or simply odd - in pictures. I'll shoot my favorite(s) and post it (them) here tomorrow.

Huw said...

Wow, that picture scared me. Do you eat breakfast in the dark?

donna y said...

Is that butter? Weird! Okay, 3 words...snail, inkblots, oddity.
Foods to photo...strawberry jam, waffle, bacon. BTW, I'm not a morning person either.

Strangely enough, it immediately reminded me of the sculptures in Versailles, which appear to emerge out of the solid rock.

And that was before I read your post. If you havn't seen them here is an example which I just uploaded to my flickr photostream. The previous 2 pictures are also from Versailles.

Best and today visiting via Michele.

awful, gruesome, art

Now at first glance I was like yuk and can see why you would not want to get up in the mornings:) I just had quick glance and didn't make it out as margerine as of that point. Hello, Michele sent me.

I think of pancakes when I see it which leads me to yummy which leads me to hungry.

Neat blog, my mom says she will come back and read it! She wishes there were more journalists who want to make the world a better place.

Belgian waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. Of course, then I would drool on my keyboard!

Train-Guy said...

Yaeli said...

I'm not a morning person either Carmi, so I totally sympathise. When i look at your picture I think "I'd prefer butter". I think waffles would make interesting pictures!

Michele sent me.

panthergirl said...

Yeeeeeuch!!! I hate margerine!! Oily, tasteless, bland...those are the words that come to mind. Now butter...different story entirely.

Here via michele today!

teli said...

help me scream. Really, don't ask me because I don't know what may have triggered that :).

Breakfast foods that may look cool - a macro shot of an Cheerio or I really like oatmeal.

(here from Michele's)

Yaeli said...

Michele keeps sending me back to you. :o)
Another food that could make some good pictures would be Jelly, although i think my version of jelly is your Jello...

Who let the ice-cream melt? More than three words....but that's the phrase that kept going round and round my head.

Plain Jane said...

You know, I thought it was a marble bust on the roof of some chapel, at first...

I kept trying to find the flying angels or Mary or Jesus...

*cackle* Maybe I need more coffee...

(coffee makes for a good photo when you dump the cream in it and it swirls around all maelstrom like... )
