Something Different – Caprese Salad

Summertime, and the Livin’ is Easy . . .

Tomatoes are Ripe . . . and the Basil is tall.

Okay . . . perhaps I cheated.  The tomatoes are store-bought.

My vines still  only produce about five cherry tomatoes a day, but the basil is growing like crazy!

What’s a girl to do?

Splurge on the prettiest tomatoes the market has to offer, and make Caprese Salad of course!

YUMM-O   . . . and so simple, sliced garden tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil from the backyard and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.    Salt and Pepper and you’re DONE!  Mmmmmm!

Recently I’ve had reasons to go back through some of my older photography blogs, and realized how much I used to enjoy sharing a photograph every day.   In fact, some of my dearest and most lasting photography friendships came out of  the OLD  circa 2007-2008  Dailies  Community at Smugmug.


Lately though, it seems  like the efforts to build my business have made it more difficult to just enjoy and create art for arts sake.

My wonderful clients DESERVE a fresh eye and the passion that made me  ditch the daily commute and the regular paycheck.     They deserve the passion that makes me get excited about the beauty of every day life.

So . . . Here’s something I saw and enjoyed   today.  That little voice in my head said that I really should share it with you.

I make no promises of a daily blog post that has little if anything to do with the business side of SPCcreative Photography, but maybe,  just maybe, I’ll do better.  Whaddaya think?


  1. Beautifully creative food shots! I am so glad that you shared your artistry Shelly.

  2. Thank you Marybeth. I only wish I could have shared the plate too.
