Pineapple . . . mango . . . coconut . . . papaya . . . macadamia nuts! The fresh native foods of Hawaii are endless!
And all of these wonderful tropical foods were found displayed in roadside stands and farmers’ markets during our time on the islands.
Some people find beauty and inspiration through capturing images of fellow humans. Yet others photograph buildings or shoot scenery. And even though I do capture those memories as well on our getaways and in everyday life . . . I also photograph food!
Raw, in process of preparation, or in its final presentation stage . . . I see and photograph food. . . in all its simplicity or complexity.
The gifts of the planet, the nourishment that sustains us . . . food in all of its beauty.
And my husband puts up with me throughout the whole process.
He even goes hungry while waiting during the final shoot! This is a must for a significant other of a food blogger! Oh no, not the going-hungry part of being in the life of a foodie (actually it’s just the opposite — the satisfaction, the pleasure of the final reward of enjoying a wonderful dish or meal). It’s the characteristic of ‘patience’ that one must have in our food-obsessed mania . . . knowing that delicious rewards are to come!
So without further introduction and chitter chatter, let me just take you on a mini-photo tour of a glimpse of the colorful Hawaiian roadside stand and Farmers’ Market scenes that will stimulate you visually and entice you to experience in beautiful and delicious Hawaii!
