CDP Theme Day - Edges


The Cutting Edge

Well I don't mind telling you that I struggled mightily with this theme. I had almost given up and decided not to be a CDP team player this month, when I found this one.  I caught Chef Cliff Holt ( Little Savannah Restaurant in Forest Park) chopping the daylights out of some flat leaf parsley recently.  His captive audience was an enthusiastic group gathered for his Saturday cooking school.  I was lucky enough to be able to join the fun as the hungry photographer!

Hundreds of of City Daily Photobloggers around the world are joining this Theme Day. Give them a look!

I agree with you, this theme was bloody hard! I almost gave up too. Glad you finally participated - I love your cutting edge approach to the theme :-)

Kim said...

Yeah! That's what I'm talking about. Cutting edge brilliant, V!
(Love how sharp his tatt is. . .that is a giveaway that you were shooting with a Canon. . .they always pull the small details and text into the crispy zone for some reason :-)).

Watch your fingers if that knife has a very sharp edge

Oh this is absolutely super. Cutting edge of course and all the cuts in the parsley and the edges of the board and all the cuts that make up the mosaic of the board. And the edges of the basket in the background - even, perhaps especially the edges in the guy's tattoo. Now that's something. What about the edges of his finger nails?

I am always very impressed by how fast they can work with the knifes. And it's a good one for the theme day as well.

I am beginning to wonder who voted for this theme (not me)! Everyone is saying how difficult it was. :)

Your shot is one of the best I've seen for the literal sense of edges. I like the movement too. I imagine this guy's a good chopper.

Halcyon, your comment sent me right to the CDP portal to see what is up for next month. Good grief, there are one or two in the running that I can't think of a thing for! Go vote!
