Sweet
Toronto, Ontario, February 2007 [Click to embiggen]


I took this simply because I thought sugar cubes would make a cool picture.

Your turn: Do they?

David said...

yes, when the subject matter is monochromatic, its ALL ABOUT the lights and shadows. a good study!

Absolutely. They're so clean looking. Anything cubic is okay in my book.
And the first time I ever heard of sugar cubes was up in your land. We were at a rotating restaurant in Toronto. Or maybe near Niagara Falls. And they had sugar cubes AND brown sugar cubes. And I think I had like 3 of them, straight, before my parents stopped me.
I miss rotating restaurants.

Yup! Especially when you embiggen them.

The texture of the cubes is fascinating, i honestly never thought sugar could be so interesting!

Thank you for broadening my perspective on natural sweets.

This picture makes my teeth ache.

very granular.

kenju said...

Yes, they do. They look like they have some brown or raw sugar. Do they?

Stacy said...

Yes. And brown sugar cubes would have made a much better castle wall. We always only had the white ones. :(

I don't take sugar in my coffee but when in a restaurant/cafe and these are on the table I just have to pop one in my mouth!
I like the photo too!

Anna said...

WOW....you are up early there! Thanks for the nice comment on my post from yesterday! :)

Have a good one.....

kristin said...

Oh yes, they most certainly do...make an interesting & lovely photograph! They are so ABSTRACT, and the angles, textures and shadows are thought-provoking. Thank you for another worthwhile photo, and for giving us all Pause For Thought, once again. :)

srp said...

I think blogger ate my first comment... must really be hungry as this seems to be going around.

I love the texture of the cubes and the symmetry. What type of macro lens do you have....

Yes they do make a worthy picture. I have never seen brown sugar cubes. Brings back memories of making my Mom buy sugar cubes so I could take them to the riding stables every week when I went for my riding lesson. I used to eat a few of them but the horses normally got the majority LOL.
