The Travel template suggests a travel photo for the background, so I uploaded a picture from the trip I took to Scotland last summer with my daughter. I think it's a shoreline on Lewis or Harris. I find hiking and the outdoors and especially rocky coastlines soul nourishing, so that's my excuse for using a travel photo in the back ground of a food blog.
The photo from my profile is a photo my daughter took while we were eating at The Mustard Seed in Inverness. A great restaurant that shares my philosophy of fresh, local, sustainable food. I love the name of their restaurant too, foody and a little Shakespeare reference. Also, the photo is relatively flattering of me, and is from one of the happiest times in my life. Great restaurants are soul nourishing!
I hope to start posting photographs of the food I am writing about soon. There are some great food photographers blogging and writing about food and I hope my blog will be even a tenth as inspiring as them. Until I get my photographic act together though, check out Nom Nom Paleo, a great photographer, funny, interesting blogger, and fellow-traveler as regards food. I can't wait to buy their I-pod app, though first I will have to get an I-pod. I also really love the photographs at Gluten Free Girl and the Chef. Shauna was the first food blogger I ever read, I found her as I was realizing I could never have gluten again. Her positive attitude and joyous approach to Celiac, food, and life have been a source of inspiration and solace for me. Even if you can eat gluten you should read her blog.
