It was pretty toasty around here last week – 100+ degrees doesn’t happen in Seattle very often.  I was really missing our crappy air conditioner in Springfield, as it would have made life a little more comfortable.

So, what better way to pass the time, then to photograph things that melt quickly?!…yeah, let’s just say, it was a good thing that the effect I was going for was a nice puddle of dessert…




This last one is in direct sunlight/100+ afternoon heat – it didn’t last long.


Needless to say, I inhaled these suckers as soon as I put my camera down…or at least, I had what was left of them.

My BF is pretty amazing.  For many different reasons – one of which being that he loves to make things from scratch.  We have fresh homemade bread in the house nearly every week, and there’s always the chance of finding a new concoction for dinner every other night.

So it was no real surprise when he decided to make ice cream on a Friday afternoon.  We voted on mixed berry over lavender/coconut – although I might convince him to make the latter in a few weeks.  And we made sure to grab some raspberries at the store later that evening, to accompany his most recent creation.

The results were pretty heavenly!  This is not your “trying to watch your figure” ice cream, this is full fat – heavy cream kind of heavenly…with a few fresh berries to make you feel better about yourself.

I have yet to make that trip…you know the one where you backpack around Italy, stay in hostels, and have a diet of just nutella and toast?  Okay, maybe I’d include olives, pasta, and pizza in that diet plan…but you don’t need much else!

I’m a member of a photo group on Flickr called ‘Still Life with…:Remakes’ created by the lovely, Lara Ferroni.  I could go on and on about how lovely Lara is, she really is a superb role model in this food photography world – and she’s from Seattle!!! (about 10 extra brownie points!)

Our first challenge, nutella, and getting just the ‘right’ swirly spread action going.  Mad props to those that can get this right the first time!  But no complaints here, the more nutella that I had to spread, the more nutella I would get to eat! (just gearing up for my ‘trip’ – I’m ready for you Italy!)
