Avocado Pear Smoothie

One lone pear, after making the Pear Crisp and some avocados bought at a very good offer was one reason I made this smoothie…   Sometimes, breakfast on weekends are just smoothies and thankfully, HD also likes them. I do doubt whether he goes out and eat full fledged though he doesn’t tell me anything! Hehe…. This smoothie is pretty thick and filling, so if you find it too thick to your liking, then do add some more milk or water to loosen it up. If you don’t like the tangy taste of yogurt, then skip it too! The pear is not very prominent in this smoothie, the avocado dominates all throughout it.   This shot was taken as a part of Saturday Snapshots #9 hosted by Shweta. The theme for the whole month starting from April 20 and ending on May 20 was to shoot drinks in any form….

Watermelon Cooler

You must have noticed that I am a part of a lovely group called Saturday Snapshots. My earlier posts can be seen here. This time, Shweta gave us a theme of “Holding Food”, where we were supposed to snap pictures with a human element. Since it was a really interesting theme, I decided to click last Saturday.

Saturday Snapshots #5 ~ Lentils

Since I may not be able to manage in the next month, thanks to our shifting, I so lazily took into doing this one. I chose to shoot urad dal against a black background and here are the snaps: Do post in your comments and suggestions, as to how I can improve (hopefully!)… 🙂 Linking this off to the Saturday Snapshots hosted by Sirisfood and Merry Tummy…

Saturday Snapshots #4 ~ Whole Spices

I had already mentioned in my pizza post of last week, that I have become a part of this exciting challenge put together by Siri and Shweta, in the name of “Saturday Snapshots”. I joined the group with a lot of apprehension as to how much effort and time I can put into their projects, but let’s see how things go, since I do want to learn and improve my food photography. Whenever I ask my good blogger friends, who are awesome food photographers themselves, the advice they give me is “practice, practice and practice”. I know that’s the main thing required, and I also know that I am plainly lazy to invest my time into it… If I tell you that I don’t get a moment to rest and my whole day, including weekends are packed with something or the other, you all would believe but there is one…
