Great Links

On the subject of visual modalities, take a look at these "Foodscapes"--food art by photographer Carl Warner (and HUGE thanks to Brett for hunting down this artist and letting me know about him!!). The first image is called "Salmon Sea" and the second is "Tuscan Kitchen." Even more can be found on his website. Remarkable.





And, in the Wonderful World of Austen, hugs of gratitude to both Eliza and the Smart Bitches for providing me with this fantabulous gem: Austenbook, a.k.a. the story of Pride and Prejudice as told through Facebook updates.

I'm loving the Internet today.

I like all his photographs. There's one of postal boxes or hotel room slots with keys dangling from them. One has a green bow. Just makes you wonder what that means. Thanks for sharing, M :)

Maureen~thanks!! I laughed and laughed as I read through it. What would Jane say?!

Robin~they are cool, aren't they? Hope you have a great weekend, too :).

L.A.~I'll have to look for that one... I remember seeing that he was influenced by Ansel Adams and films like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, so his work is an interesting blend.

Oh, I love those! The second one is especially beautiful -- delicious.

You and your food! But then again, I shouldn't be surprised--even your blog is named after food!

And I saw that Facebook thing and thought of you! (After cracking up, of course!) Did you also get the Regency dress-up link?

Marilyn Brant said...

Caryn~It does look tasty, doesn't it? Just hand me a fork and I'll happily fall into that picture.

Pam~No, I didn't see a Regency dress-up link! Please send it to me whenever you have a chance!!
