|Oreo's dipped in Belgian Chocolate made in Florida.???|
Girl Child moves today. From her scruffy student digs into her new Petite Maison. A 445 square foot condo. Petite, maybe, but it has it's own washer/dryer and a bathtub, as well as a bedroom which is a bonus in the land of Toronto "studio" apartments. I shall be spending the day supervising the emerging decor, and trying NOT to make it look like me, but rather HERS.
I picked up a package of cookies to have with our afternoon tea today, knowing full well we'll be in need of a pick me up. I couldn't resist these colorful foil wrapped Oreo cookies. Dipped in Belgian chocolate but made in Florida. How Weird is that so find on the shelves in Ontario?.
Anyway, blogging beckons us to be creative doesn't it?. Blogging competition is such that we can no longer merely photograph a cookie and post it, for fear of boring our delightful readers. As such, I took heed from posts on food styling. I noticed the colorful backgrounds and in my haste to find an appropriate "SET" for the cookies, I laid them out on the first thing at hand that complemented the vivid colors of my cookies.
This beautiful book on India that I am currently reading became the perfect backdrop to showcase my cookies. And then I got carried away, posing the pretty biscuits on various pages and marveling at the color combinations. The book is called "Spirit of India" by Gill Davies.

Who knew I could have such fun shooting these exuberant cookies. It just wouldn't have been the same with a digestive!
