Food Shot: The Walrus & The Carpenter

This week I went to The Walrus & The Carpenter, one of Seattle's long standing best restaurants. I popped in for happy hour, taking advantage of the half off oysters. Beautiful, fresh and all from Washington and BC, the oysters were piled high in wire baskets covered in ice. The clean marble table and beautiful afternoon light made it an easy shoot. I ordered a 1/2 dozen oysters, the 'one night in salem' cocktail and the citrus salad. The herbaceous and sweet flavor of the cocktail went really well with the oysters and the grapefruit and fennel in the salad complemented each other perfectly. If only I could have tried everything on the menu...

Weekly Food Shot

I'm challenging myself to take a new food shot each week. Whether it's in my kitchen, studio, a restaurant or on the street, that's my goal. Here's the first one.

I love that the chalk dust ended up looking like snow on the dark board.
