hi mezzaluna.

first of all, you have to have a yahoo membership. go to the yahoo webpage if you don't and click on "sign me up". you'll fill out a form, they'll give you an email address, etc....maybe it will take 3-4 minutes. then just go to the link. if you can't use the link, go thru yahoo clubs. click on clubs from the webpage, then do a search in clubs for "the story of food and eating." once you're there, you'll see my club home page with a picture of some chile peppers. click on "join this club," then you fill out another little form. 2 minutes max. then you'll be a member, it'll return you to the club home page. then click on "photos" on the left side of the screen, then choose from my albums which photos you want to see.

it should be easier than i've made it sound.

good luck

Great photos! Thanks. Nice to know that there are other people out there who take pictures of food (aside from prof. food photographers that is). My friends always thought I was strange for taking close-up pics of food stuff.

WOW!!!

Those are great pictures!

I guess I lost track of this thread. I'm glad I checked it out again. You are a very talented photographer. I especially like the shots that include people. Good timing with expressions.

Thanks, eddie :cool:

hi everyone...

wow! i posted this thread more than a month ago and no one looked at it...and now i get 11 responses in one day. very strange...

by the way, you don't have to use the yahoo site to view the photos. non-yahoo users can view the pics by clicking on the webshots link that is under the two photos i posted in this thread. this site is open to all.

anyway....thanks so much to all for such nice feedback. it makes me want to get out and take more photos. i'm still planning to do lots more travelling in italy, so i'm sure i'll work through lots more markets and film. i still have some shots from sicily that i'd like to transfer to cd rom.

risa...you're right...i love taking market shots for the local color you can get, but also just still lifes of food can be so beautiful. i have done some shots with various fruits that i took with high-speed black and white film that i used to get that really grainy effect...and i really like them. you are a professional photographer? do you specialize in food? what kind of cameras are you using? i'm very interested in learning more about photography

gourmetlover...i sent you a message through cheftalk about possibly connecting me with an agent...thanks for the kind offer.

momoreg, papa, cc, mezzaluna, and everyone else, thanks again for your kind words and your enthusiasm. seeing how passionate everyone here is about food and all that surrounds it really reminds me of why i'm doing this in the first place and re-inspires me to get out and cook and taste and learn and experience as much as possible.

Elakin: I am far, FAR from a professional photographer. I just had a little point and shoot camera for a long time. Now, I use a point and shoot digital camera with some advanced options. I like taking pics of market stands because it helps preserve my travel memories and those pictures take me back to that moment when I took the picture. I'm more of a taste, touch and smell person and pics of food is the closest way to record those senses.

Often new subjects will overlap and cover other subjects. That's apparently why everyone missed seeing your photos. Once someone sees a thread and replys, it brings it back to the surface. I think... :)
Again, gorgeous photos!
