bistro breakfast, table outside . . .

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 4 June 2011 in Food & Cuisine and Portfolio.

Oatmeal and fruit, with a liberal dusting of brown sugar. This was my son's choice, and he was anxious for me to finish photographing so he could eat it !! :-)

that sounds lovely, boy do I wish i could have breakfast outside, it's going to rain so hard this weekend here. but that really looks delicious, I love the colors (and how the reds of the strawberries continue in the plate, blueberries in the brown-sugar thing)

this looks delicious!! Now I'm really, really hungry.

I recently did the same thing with my son when we went out for sushi (photos to come sometime later) - I kept photographing them and all he wanted to do was eat!

@marci: Oh, what our families put up with for our craft ! Aren't we lucky? And my husband even drives me around for photo shoots. Very kind of him. :-)

Morris Taub (momo) from Montpellier, France

love the image, the reds/design just work so well...and another 'damn' this makes me hungry...though i'd swap out the sugar for wheat germ or toasted yeast flakes as i do here in france...i stopped using sugar this way years i enjoy the natural sweetness of the fruit...although, i do sometimes add a bit of honey to things...

MY ALL TIME favorite dish...meal...snack.What a delightful mix of fruit...sans brown sugar I could do it. Where is this place, promise me next time we go together.

Footnote, the seeds of flax are especially great detail. And, of course, the plate adds to the snappy colors.
