The Blue Lagoon

"All we need, really, is a change from a near frigid to a tropical attitude of mind." ~ Marjory Stoneman Douglas

 

This is a food landscape I created for "Get Pushed" round 16 as sort of a 'vice versa' challenge with push partner Mimo. When she issued my challenge for a levitation selfie, she mentioned that it was something she'd been wanting to do herself so we made a deal to each do our own challenge - the one we gave in addition to the one we received. If you haven't met Mimo yet, I recommend going over for a visit. Her work is special in that she makes quality and poignant photographs of the world around her, wherever she may travel. Her commentary is touching, and educational in a journalistic style. I'm pleased to have had the chance to work with Mimo again in 'Get Pushed'

 

About this image: The challenge was to create an image inspired by the well known food landscape photographer Carl Warner. He creates his scenes entirely out of food items and comprises his images out of layer composites in post processing. This is one shot however, of a set that I crafted with full intentions to add more in photoshop but I was happy with it as it turned out, even though I've not come close to the amazing work Carl Warner does.
