Food Photo

I took this photograph a couple of months ago at the Mount Clare Museum House's 300 Years of Wedgwood press event. My mother got their newsletter this weekend and they had used my photograph. If you've never been to Mount Clare, go during October when it's free!

Incredibly, the white bowl is Wedgwood, and what's even more interesting is that it's more than 100 years old, and was used in a dairy. The contrast between the white bowl and the dark red apples is amazing. The way the late afternoon light is coming through the window makes the photo look like a Dutch still-life painting.

Great picture.

Funny, the bowl looks very mid-Century modern to me, like something someone would have bought at Scan in the 1970s. Surprising how old it really is.
