I ate the subject!

I wandered into my local dealership the other day, and walked right into a Canon promo day where one of the reps was selling his wife’s home-made jam (jelly) in aid of cancer charities. I told him I wouldn’t switch to Canon, but I would buy a pot of his jam if I could photograph the pot lids. I think he thought I was slightly crazy, but here is the result which just goes to show you never know when and where you are going to see something worthwhile, so keep your eyes open!

I ate the subject, it was delicious!

About Gerry Walden

I am a stock photographer with far more years of experience than I would care to mention. Located in Southampton (UK) I am sandwiched between two national parks and my home town is a major seaport. I shoot mostly people related images, and travel when I can. I am resident photographer at a major concert venue in the town which means I get to shoot a variety of musicians.
