Travel & Food Photography – The Last Few Weeks In A Nutshell

We had some rather wet and gloomy weather for a few weeks so I decided not to photograph as much due to the fact that gray clouds and raindrops in my photos just don’t excite me in the least. Plus it gave me some time to play catch up on projects I have been meaning to finish and of course read 4 books!  Anyway, hope you enjoy the landscape and food photography below from our time in Bordeaux, Saint Emilion and Fronsac.

This is how excited I get when I eat eclairs:)I am sure the owners of the Chateau were pleased as pie that I was hanging off their massive door knockers…oh well!The beautiful Chateau de La Riviere! In addition to it being a chateau that people can come and visit they have also turned one of the wings into a small 5 bedroom Bed and Breakfast. It was so fun staying here minus the stairs we had to climb each day to get to our room.Andrew tending to his grapes:)The Chateau had the most beautiful gardens surrounding it…I was quite inspired to start one of my own at home until I remembered that I don’t have a yard.It is just too hard to say “NO” in France. Aything the eye sees, the stomach must have:)I know I will regret that reality when I get on the stairmaster next!Took this for you mom! Your hydrangeas are much prettier, but I thought you might like to see what France had to offer.Lounging by the pool or at least attempting to while swatting at anything that buzzed….the first day we got ATTACKED by every bug on the planet…poor Andrew got so many bites.The staircase of death…I swear I saw stars everytime I hauled my cookies up them…too many chocolate croissants! HA!The quaint town of Saint Emilion…still a little gray in the sky hence the one lovely photo.

Looks like the camera is still working! The shots are fab as always – Submit your food shots to Gourmet, Food & Wine, Wine Spectator, etc. They make your mouth water and forget any food allergies – it will be worth it. Love, Mom
