Project: Week 10 - Pastry

Sometimes this project is hard work, at other times it's just a great excuse to eat cake!

For this week's image I wanted something visually appealing as well as tasty, so I searched for cakes and pastries that looked appetising rather than just plain and uninteresting. I had visions of having to resort to Mr Kipling cakes, or even worse, Greggs! Determined to avoid that, I was spurred on to find something handmade, scrumptious, and mouth-watering to look at, and luckily I found the very thing. Initially I was simply attracted to the colour but while I zoomed in and out to pick my focal point and angle, I could feel myself salivating! Calm down, I told myself, it's just a pastry. But it wasn't - it was deliciousness within arms' reach.

Having managed to control myself long enough to take the shot, I treated myself to the deliciousness! I'm sure there are words to describe it, but it's rude to talk with your mouth full so if you'll excuse me ... ;)

Here’s the finished image for Week 10.
