This is the image that headed the previous blog of Lucinda's at Nourish Me. Sincethe beginning I sense that there has been a consistency to the lovely, earthy tone of her blog. When I emailed to seek permission to post some of her wonderful images she explained that her training and interest in drawing has been diverted to working with film cameras in recent years. Given my own interest in cooking and food that comes from the earth largely unadulterated I was immediately drawn to the honesty of her photographs of simple foods like fruits, vegetables, grains and so on. The care and soulfulness is all there...a quiet beauty that is easily lost in overly contrived food styling.
This is not contrived...this is a visual and written celebration of everyday bounty that really is quite precious!
beetroot and lemon broth ...in a lovely copper pot. Love the sublime colour in this image!
'right beneath my childhood bedroom window' was the caption with this one from Lucinda's flickr site.

old window pane...a kind of bubble glass captures the light astonishingly well!
an egg cracked open...exquisite! Reading this blog left me wanting to head straight to the kitchen. Great recipes too I must add. Thanks for the inspiration Lucinda!
