Fresh baked bread

London, ON, March 2009

About this photo: We're doing edible all week long. Don't know what I'm talking about? Click here to find out.
Sometimes, we take pictures that seem to have a texture all their own - this despite the obvious limitations of a strictly two-dimensional medium.

When faced with a limitation, we can either accept it at face value, or we can choose to find some way to overcome it. To wit, if you touch this photo on your screen right now, you obviously won't feel the pillowy soft surface of this long-munched hamburger bun. But if you close your eyes just so, maybe you can imagine it.

As the economy continues to spin off large- and small-scale destruction, as children disappear without a trace, as so many of us face overwhelming waves of difficulty and challenge, something as simple as a moment like this can make the difference between surviving and living.

Go ahead and give it a try. I'll wait.

Your turn: So, what did you imagine?

It looked like a close-up of a golden hued quilt. My bread never looks like that!

I imagined all the people, living life in peace.

And I finished up the Edible theme with something on the lighter side, because damn.

I felt I could put my finger into the soft bread and reach down to the white part of the bun... :)

I wanted to jump in and bounce on it for fun, eventhough I knew it was just bread. But very comforting bread nonethless, I have simple edible item up today.

As the Fantastic Four posed for the group photo, Ben was unhappy about his close up.
