Feta Cheese and Sun-dried Tomatos Scones and Frustations

I have been seriously thinking about weather I should upload this post or not. We always speak about the pleasure of cooking this, baking that and eating all! The creative process of creating a picture is, at least for me, fun and challenging.

This time I want it to share with you my frustrations. That I am going through a creative –photographic crisis is obvious. You just need to take a look at the pics. And to prove that this is not some kind of self-suggestion-drama I wanted you to “enjoy” this post.

Since in my apartment the light is not great, I decided to get all my food and gadgets and go out to find a place to take the pictures. I though that the club where I ride was a perfect place.

So there I was ready with my camera. I take one picture …. And the camera dies. I have to admit that for a second I freaked out. Me in the middle of a paddock taking pictures to my scones and he camera dies!!! What did I do? I took my phone. Which, by the way is not last generation, and took the pictures you see here.

The only thing I can say, apart from sorry for the pics, is that the scones are delicious. The recipe is from the “The Baking Photo Cookbook” application for IPad.

I will post the recipe very soon!!!

Sure, I can imagine you and feel your frustration.
Before I found a properly iluminated place at home for the photos, my husband catched me on top of the tube taking pictures of food under the loo window. I have never seen him laughing so loudly along the corridor!
Take a deep breath, relax, and take it easy.

I just can imagine your husband! When I am in Asturias and I prepared my food and props my grand-aunt looks at me like I am nuts! Which probably I am!!
Thanks for your words and for stoping by!
