Scavenger Hunt #7--Consumption

This week's Scavenger Hunt topic was "consumption".  It was a tough one for me because it was another somewhat abstract idea.  I put as literal interpretation on it as I could.  

I'm still pretty in awe of how one idea can morph into another.  I had a completely different composition for this image in my mind's eye.  When I tried it, it looked really bad, so I kept moving the cookies around.  My original idea included a small glass of milk next to the cookies, but then I realized I didn't have any small, glass drinking glasses.  

I finally remembered I had this  pint-sized antique milk bottle and knew that it would work better than a regular drinking glass anyway. It took quite a few tries to get the cookies in a composition that I found pleasing.   

BTW--the cookies are a limited edition version of vanilla Oreo with a Candy Corn filling in honor of the Fall candy.

This is great, Linda!!! The composition is very pleasing, with the bright white background contrasting with the colorful, half-eaten cookies. I love the unique perspectives you always create in your images. Wonderful interpretation of the assignment! :-)

Another great photo. I agree with Trish in all that she said. Colorful cookie, good subject, but good to eat?
