Thread: A winter recipe for CD bakes

  1. #1

    A winter recipe for CD bakes

    Take...

    one CD (last shot is several)
    one bottle of glycerine
    one studio flash lamp
    one medium sized Canon 50D
    one good quality macro lens
    500ml 'Old Hen' beer

    Mix all ingredients except the beer. Place into a hot CS5 oven and bake for 30mins
    until the colour of the CDs indicates they are cooked. Leave outside to cool, and for the birds to scavenge...

    C+C welcome, but I drank the beer.

    Hi Rob,

    Question: I only cook with Nikon. Will the use of higher quality ingredients negatively impact the final product?
    If so, will drinking more beer help?



    Cool shots!

    To a connoisseur of your obvious level of gastronomic palate, I would have to say, no. Delia favours the Olympus, but what does she know, she's more interested in running Norwich City Football Club.

    Oh, yes, very much so. In fact I'm going to have some now. So goodbye, and good luck in the kitchen.

    Where's Katy? - she likes baking.

    This might need some explanation. See this.

    In the UK she has reached the sort of iconic status where only the first name is required. A bit like 'Rob' on this site.

    Hmm. In the photo of her with Michael Wynn-Jones, she looks a bit like Sarah Palin. I hope for your sake that the similarity ends there.

    Now, there's a thought. Delia for Prime Minister.

    OH, I'm here, and this is one of my very favorite recipes! I just LOVE the smell of burning plastic wafting through the house - very homey and just in time for the holidays, too!

    As far as your photos are concerned.... "eep! ".... I wouldn't know how to comment except that they drew me in and made me stare. The magpie in me wants to keep them!

    After all that nonsense about Delia and Sarah imitating real politicians (!), it's time to concentrate on the images.

    They're all good (of course). But after studying and staring, I think the construction of this image is wonderful (if you now say that you just threw them down any old way and photographed them ...!). Lovely curves and shapes (which takes us back to Delia and Sarah!).

    It's a nice comment, Donald, but I'm concerned that your lady friends down under may find Delia and Sarah a challenge to their affections. Worse still, they may find your attraction to curvaceous CD's wholly inappropriate, and transfer their affections to some lesser, non-Scottish, being.

    BTW: I just threw the CDs down on the worktop and shot them.
