The Phoneography Challenge is issued on Monday morning for the entire week.  The theme/themes for each week repeat monthly and can be found included in each week’s post.  That means you can start agonizing over which photo/s to use early and set up your post at your leisure.  If you take photos with a phone or tablet, please consider joining us.  It’s fun, the people are great and you’ll see many beautiful photos.

For the Challenger’s Choice this week, I decided to take on the challenge of “Food” as my theme.  There are many wonderful food photographers and I don’t claim to be one of them.  But I do like to take photos of food I think people will enjoy hearing about and imagine eating.  I played around a bit more with editing this week and am pleased with the results.  What do you think?  Which is most appealing to you (as a photo?)

These scone are adapted just slightly from “Moosewood Restaurant New Classics” recipe.  They are delicious and distressingly healthy.  Here’s the link to the post where I shared the recipe as well as a few others:  https://sustainabilitea.wordpress.com/2012/07/28/dinner-and-scones/.  Enjoy!  And if you try them, let me know what you thought.

These two burgers are from Michael Symon’s “B Spot”, http://bspotburgers.com/.  The top one, a portobella burger which, as I recall, was dubbed “Why?” (as in why would you order that when you could get a “real” burger) and came with free bacon.  I say “was” because search as I might, I don’t see it on the menu any longer.  Too bad!  It was wonderful!

“Lola”, also from “B Spot”, is a burger with sunny side up egg, bacon, pickled red onions, cheddar cheese.  My sister-in-law loved it, although it can be a bit messy!

What’s your choice?  Either way, you won’t walk away hungry and if you still have room, there are scones for dessert.

Now go forth and take photos!
