Rosa Mayland ponders on the meaning and significance of food in everyday life in her column Rosa’s Musings. She has the advantage of growing up in an incredibly multicultural environment and speaking many languages. She runs the site Rosa’s Yummy Yums. “Terroir with TLC” is the word chez Rosa — quality ingredients, regional and seasonal produce, made with tender loving care — and this is reflected in the recipes she creates.

Rosa recently started photographing in black and white and we find them delightful. This is her first one-woman show of B&W food photography.

      It’s almost like a different art form, don’t you think? I love it too, and I think it works even for food, which we associate so much with color: red apples, green broccoli, yellow cheese, etc.

      Thank you, Sofie! B&W photography adds a little “je-ne-sais-quoi” to the subject photographed. It is much more atmospheric…

      Cheers,

      Rosa

        I would like to express tnahks to this writer for rescuing me from this type of predicament. Just after surfing around through the search engines and seeing thoughts that were not powerful, I assumed my entire life was over. Being alive minus the approaches to the issues you’ve sorted out by means of your entire review is a critical case, as well as the ones that might have in a negative way affected my career if I had not encountered your website. Your expertise and kindness in maneuvering a lot of stuff was crucial. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t encountered such a step like this. I can now relish my future. Thanks so much for the skilled and result oriented help. I won’t hesitate to propose your blog to anybody who desires care about this matter.

    Hey

    I love the picture of the fruit and vegetable stand with the words “pizzo” at top. I was wondering if I may get permission to use it for wall art and decoration at The Plaza Food Hall.

    please email me at intern@eladgroup.com

    thank you

      Can you please tell me which article you’re referring to, or give me the URL. We usually use our own photos, Creative Commons photos, photos from photo stock, or photos for which the photographers have given us full permission. If there is a watermark, you would probably have to request authorization from the photographer himself.

      Can you please give me the URL, or failing this, the name of the photographer or exhibit? There are many slide shows.
