Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge: Eat and drink

Three posts have lined up nicely and enabled my offering for today. Thank you.

First, Ishita posted a quote on Italophilia which, after almost three years living here, I can verify is nothing if not true:


Then I saw that Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge for this week is on the subject of food and beverage. It’s interesting to view black and white images of food because lack of colour tends to render familiar stuff inedible. My photos are not from Italy (except the first when amore made what they call prosciutto) but rather from my homeland, Slovenia. For some reason I seemed to focus on drinks. More information in captions.

And lastly, to balance it out , I just saw a post on My Food Odyssey about the book by Michael Pollan with the title “In Defense of Food” and the film based on it that answers the question “What shall I eat?” in a very straightforward, and catchy, fashion:

Eat food,
not too much,
mostly plants.

Lucky me. The beverages above are made from plants!

  1. True, intersting topic Cee has come up with. Funny how photos of food aren’t the first thing you’d think of when thinking b&w. Great pics and story 🙂 Michael Pollan’s book The Omnivore’s Dilemma was one of the most interesting ones I’ve read in the last 5 years. Read it! I say that to everyone and no one reads it, but luckily I have Goodreads to turn to 🙂 I didn’t know they made a movie of one if his other books, that one’s been on my reading list but blogging leaves less time for books!

    1. SSW, I’m very glad that you have read him and can recommend it. Today was the first time I saw his name, and haven’t seen the film either. Will put both titles on my to-do list most gladly. You know, for when the solar storm kills the internet. 😀
