I am still enjoying the Tartine Gourmande website and not just for recipes but for still-life ideas as she has a special eye for food photography.

I had seen the above images before and must have had them catalogued in my memory because I seized upon a bag of reduced pea-pods in the supermarket aisle as if I already knew what I was going to do.

I think my age is beginning to defie these bird-eye views because of the neck ache it causes but I’m sure someone said something about suffering for your art!
