A nicely set table; two food pics

My flash isn’t digital-ttl capable, so I have to shoot all my flash shots manually (a useful exercise anyway, I suppose). Here by accident I had it on “high”, ISO 500, 1/125 f/5 (40mm). I especially like how the wood spatula handle floats against all the white.

Perhaps less interesting than the picture: this is two chinese preparations of choy. On the left, japanese bekana or tokyo choy is cooked with water chestnuts and cubed frozen (spongy) tofu, in oyster sauce (or, as Scott prefers, “brown” sauce) with scallion, ginger, and garlic. On the right is bok choy with carrots in a gingery miso sauce with honey. Both were delicious last night and for lunch today.
