i liked his work in university, but hadn't seen it until recently. it's interesting to see how earlier work has influenced my own without consciously being aware of it.

gelato!!!







It's been awhile since I've posted anything remotely food-like, (OK, except for the post on Saturday) so here are some pics of gelato. No, I didn't eat it all myself - I ask my patient, long-suffering friends to put their gelato cups on the counter while I snap photos of whatever flavours we're having. Then they have to save me their spoons when they're done - thank you! (You know who you are!)
