Long time coming

One of my recent shots was a very long time in the making. I started making waffles for breakfast when I was 8. I'd get up in the morning and mix up the batter, put it on the waffles iron and then wake my parents up with 'the waffles are going to burn if you don't get up'! Ever since then I have been a fan of homemade waffles, and now that I have kids of my own they are fans too.

Ever since I started with stock a couple of years ago I've been looking out for the perfect golden waffle to get a photo of. Not only that, it also had to be a day when the stars aligned - you see I have a way of doing my stock shots that is designed to fit into a busy lifestyle with young kids. I have a mental list of shots I'd like to get, but I rarely plan to go and do the shot. Instead I wait for the time when the shot I wanted to get presents itself. Then, with the camera nearby I get the shot and upload it. If the camera isn't handy, or the kids need attention there is always another day ;)

Anyways, here is my waffle shot, 30 years in the making:

Nice image, can you put that (the waffle, not the photos) in a box and mail to me here in Russia; no waffles here and I miss them.

I think the photo might taste better than the waffle by the time it arrives :)

Yummy food shots like this one - a nearly impossible mission with kids around :-) I've got the same problem, I'd love to take them but they're wolfed down before I can press the On button on the camera.
