The art of the still life. A posed studio portrait of a natural object. Edward Weston's abstract forms from nature: bell peppers, sea-wrack, driftwood.

History of art is the history of the painted still-life, its changes and elements. Food always a topic. Nothing so essential as food. Picture-perfect. Fresh food. history of fresh produce from village markets. Local farmer's market, organic produce, home-grown, fresh-picked, vibrant with life, delicious.

Double pleasure: after the photographs, the stir-fry.

I love the shapes of peppers, you've really made them look special with your photos. Luckily I've got a nice pepper to include in my supper tonight...
