Food Photography – Scenes from Easter (sorta)

I spent Easter sleeping. Having just come off of a night shift at the hospital, my body was angry. These photos are from the day before Easter, which was the first day back of the Cville City Market and the day of the Charlottesville 10 Miler (don’t worry, I did not participate). After we loaded up on farmers market goodies, we took Biscuit to a great dog park we just found that has a lake area for pups to swim. He had the time of his life.

So I took a raincheck on Easter this year, though I did make Smitten Kitchen’s Spinach and Cheese Strata for dinner along with some kielbasa. The strata was amazing, but let me caution you to use a low baking dish – I used corningware and it took twice as long to cook. D’oh.


I just don’t understand how people enjoy running these things..


A pretty awesome string band (and their dog) played as the runners slogged by.


There weren’t too many vegetables out yet, but there were lots of great potted plants.


My husband zeroed in on the one stand selling apples.


Herbs and flowers were all around.


I want to say these are bright and gorgeous ranunculus – any flower experts out there?


There were some fresh and lovely looking lettuces.


There were also some new vendors this year; I like this girl looking pensively at the colorful skirts and tops.


Then it was time for Biscuit to enjoy the dog park.


The pups try to intimidate some geese.


Then Biscuit’s new friend says, “Come on, the water’s great!” But Biscuit has never been in the water before.


He tests the water a bit, but keeps close to the biggest dog I’ve ever seen.. apparently an Alaskan Malamute.


See that speck in the water? Someone has found his new love.


Everyone joins in the fun. Hope you had a great Easter!

    Yes, I was quite concerned that you participated in a 10 mile run. 😛 The market looks good. I anxiously await for the spring and summer vegetables to start coming in full swing.

  2. I love that last photo! It looks like biscuit had a wonderful time!

  3. Haha, thanks! He loves other dogs and people.. probably too much!
