Color Dreams : Inspired by Food Photography

I thought that this week we could all use a little color explosion. Winter's can be so bland and dreary, that I love when I see vibrant colors! These vegetable slices caught my eye a few weeks ago, and I keep coming back to them. They almost look like pools of paint. I love when artists translate the subject in a way that makes it appear like something else.

I am in love with Richard's food photography. His photos are so vibrant, rich, and colorful. His compositions are always so carefully positioned. I love how some of his photos are shot so incredibly close, you almost can't tell what you're looking at. They're beautiful and well-constructed!
