I love that little interior with the lasagne curtains and the tomato bowl... and the salmon sunset... sigh!

I loved the red cabbage sky. And I think I can see that he used the Parmesan village as the window view from the kitchen interior. As the captions say, he shoots in layers so he probably had various angles and sizes of the village to use as a layer in the kitchen scene.

As to the one that says it has a salmon sky, I have a feeling that's an error. I think he used the salmon as the water. Looks like lox to me. Wink And how sweet is that little pea pod boat?!

Think I should have put this one in "Around the world on a zucchini" seeing as how he's made some attempt at a travelogue?

The tomato bowl my favorite too!
I looked at his website--Carl Warner Photographer-- he does a few trompe d'oeil food tricks in *reverse* too. A green aluminum drink can -- (like 7-Up) scrunched just so--it's the core of an eaten apple!

Have you seen

Liza Lou's kitchen? FULL SIZED kitchen covered entirely in beads--including the cherry pie in the oven.

Thanks so much for posting that link! I love photography, especially macros, so Warner's beautiful photos were a real treat. I think the description of shooting in layers may mean that individual elements in each photograph were photographed independently, and they were brought together in Photoshop layers. At least that is how I would try it, although I'd never be able to accomplish something like this.

Wow!

In picture #6, the tablecloth is rolled out piecrust dough?
Or very thin-sliced bologna?

Looking again and more carefully, I'm realizing how important the photography element is--the cauliflower would not look like clouds, the red cabbge leaf would not look like a sunrise, on a table. (But broccoli does look like little trees!)

...with peas hanging in them. Wink

Isn't that snowy scene made of meat eerie? And how about that simulation of underwater photography? I can't figure out what it is that's doing service as the water surface. Gelatine mabbee?

I love this! They're like those trick pictures where if you look once, it's one thing, than if you look again you see the alternate picture and can't figure out how you could have ever missed it the first time. Once I figured out the shtick, I felt as though seeing the pictures all again. Absolutely deligtful. And I love the smoked salmon sea.

There was a sixteenth century painter called Arcimboldo who did portraits using food too. Amazing how we see food in different ways.

Rainey,

I was confused by the salmon sky image. It's definitely salmon ocean and I love the beautiful pea-green boat too!

Yes. Well, it's not as tho there isn't sooooo much to see in each one of them that you can retain all the specifics after a viewing or two. Wink

Fabulous. I love them all. Thanks, Rainey. (I've always loved the Arcimboldo prints, too, actually, though some find them "grotesque"... I keep looking for the "right" one for my dining room...)

gingerpale, don't you think that tablecloth is a piece of flat pasta?
