Tomato Onion Salad


We had a barbecue today in the garden. And as always, my mother prepared a salad as a dessert. This time it was tomato and onion salad. Super fresh and delicious! And since I like to take photos of fresh salads, I shot one this time again. I saw this nice park bench and thought it would be a great background. This is why you almost see the dressing spill out on the right side. The surface wasn’t even. This was shot with my 40mm and I think this lens makes me go a bit too close for a food … Continue reading Tomato Onion Salad

Cucumber Salad


It’s no big news that I love all kinds of salads. I don’t just like to eat them, I also like to photograph them. I like how salad bowls with different colors look on different surfaces, like different tables or different wood surfaces. But of course, it’s mainly about the salads because they look fresh and make great food photographs. The photo in this post was shot in my mother’s garden. She prepared cucumber salad for us all, and I saw the dark brown bench and thought i t would be a perfect background for the salad bowl. I like … Continue reading Cucumber Salad

The Problem, It’s Way Too Tasty


I said this very often on my blog, I absolutely love to eat salads. But I recently developed a really bad habit. I am buying a salad almost every day. You might think “Wait, but isn’t eating vitamins on a daily basis very healthy?” and you’re right. But it’s not so much about the fact that I eat salad every day, it’s more about the problem that I get it from the salad bar in my favorite super market. Before I mention the problem, let me talk about the advantages first… The thing is, they have so many ingredients in … Continue reading The Problem, It’s Way Too Tasty

Staying Fit


Mixed salad, mixed post. Yeah, it’s great to have two reasons to create a blog post. First reason was that I found the image above in my library and I like the way how I cropped it. The photo was shot in 2015 and it seems I never used it because the salad bowl was not completely in the frame. Now I cropped it on a way that I like the composition more. Next reason for this post is that I wanted to talk a bit about my running activity. To be honest, I didn’t run over the winter, mainly … Continue reading Staying Fit

Tasty Bulgur Salad


I like to eat some Turkish and Arabic meals and side dishes. I do for example like Bulgur salad. I have a Turkish fruit dealer around the corner and I know this family since a very long time. Years ago when I bought fruits, she suggested me to try her Turkish Bulgur salad. I said that it would look like Cous Cous and that I really love Cous Cous, but she replied that it would be similar, just still not the same. I got a small box filled with Bulgur for free, including the suggestion to put it on lettuce … Continue reading Tasty Bulgur Salad
