Food, Glorious Food
I've had great excitement in the last week with the arrival, finally, of my new camera and lens. This is the beginning of a whole new world of photography for me and I'm already very excited about what they both can do. At the moment there seems to be a general lack of time in my life, so without even looking at the manuals (only available on-line - really annoying) I set off to the Ludlow Food Festival to have some fun with it.
Ludlow prides itself on staging the best Food Festival of it's kind in the country - and I'd have to agree with them. It was a glorious day, hordes of people and the queues were enough to put off the most patient of man-kind. So, my friend and I decided to relax and let the atmosphere take over and we had the most delightful day - tasting everything we could get our greedy paws on - from cheese to meats and from locally brewed ales to the finest of wines. My camera came out whenever there was a gap in the crowd and I had great fun capturing a few close-ups of delicious stuff. Food photography..... now there's a thought!
