Food Photo Friday: Nov. 18th

For this Food Photo Friday, I'm featuring a picture from the blog Fannetastic Food, written by Anne P.  Anne is working to become a Registered Dietitian and created a blog that reminds readers that being a foodie can be healthy.  Sometimes, in watching things like Top Chef and seeing so much dolloping of butter, cream, etc, it seem like the life of a foodie is antithetical to a healthy lifestyle.  Anne's "fannetastic" recipes and colorful pictures do a lot to remind me that good for you and good tasting aren't necessarily mutually exclusive.

The picture I wanted to feature is one from her post called, "Friend Thanksgiving," a post about having a potluck with her graduate school friends.  Although there is a very tantalizing picture of roasting birds, the picture I chose features my favorite vegetable, Brussels sprouts.  What struck me about the picture, in addition to the rows of little green heads, was the use of focus and pattern.  In a lot of food photos, the pattern comes so much from the table and the fabrics brought in the table decoration.  In this picture, I liked how a sense of pattern and texture just comes from having so many little Brussels sprouts laid out on the pan.  Plus, the focus gives such a interesting sense of detail and scope to make those little vegetables with the bad reputation look a little more epic.
As always, if there is s a food photo you would like to nominate, leave a note in the comment section or send me an email ( with a link.

Thanks to Anne for letting me feature her picture!
