Feeding the eyes

This weekend I had the pleasure of spending an entire afternoon with a dear friend at the Denver Art Museum. I had only been once and it was a quick stop during a "Night at the Museums" tour, which took a group of us around to many museums in the city (which there is a plethora of in this brilliant city, I must say). The Denver Art Museum was just one.

We met at noon. I'll admit, I thought we'd roam around, chat and catch up, and be in and out in a couple of hours. When it was time to say our goodbyes, it had been four hours. Lovely. Just lovely. It was my friend, Harriet's, first time to the museum, so we were both up for exploring every nook and cranny. Beginning with fashion inspiration and moving on to sculpture, modern design, global works from Africa to Asia to Europe and America, we were in awe with admiration.

One of the last floors we viewed was the photography gallery. The museum is currently running an exhibit called "Women are beautiful" by photograph Garry Winogrand. The exhibit consists of a myriad of images of women living their every day lives. Quite nice.

I was also looking forward to this particular gallery as I've been thinking a lot about photography lately. More specifically, food photography. Photography has always been an art form that I've admired very much. I never thought I would be one to have the patience to learn it, however. But I keep talking about it. And admiring it. And so it is now very high on my list of skills to possess.

Great food photography is something that I've always believed is missing from this blog. Well done photos of food and drink always catch my attention, and time can quickly pass me by when I find a site or a photographer who captures food so beautifully. Remember TasteSpotting? Pages and pages (over 5,000!) of great photos. And now Pinterest. It can get addicting.

But it's so essential, I believe, as part of sharing the love of food that we food-obsessed do. The majority of the time, it begins with the image. The one that feeds the eyes with the flavors, textures and aromas that are to come.

Below are a few I've come across on Pinterest lately that I've looked at more than once. It is such an art, and I hope to join the ranks of those who capture the culinary world so well. I've never considered myself a very creative person. As Harriet and I left the art museum on Saturday, we both agreed that food is definitely an art and a form of creativity. It's absolutely where I can get creative when I focus on it. And now I look forward to learning the tips and tricks of capturing it.

Some food photos that have caught my eye as of late:

Come on. I don't care how anyone feels about beets. This sandwich looks divine, darling.
