August 28th

Capturing a scent in images-that's a tricky task.  I suppose capturing any of the other senses, outside of touch can be.  When I thought of smell, the first thing that came to mind was skunk.  That ain't good.

Smells can be so pleasant-here's one.

Pizza {sh 39}

And then there are smells that one must be a stout and quick photographer to capture.

Bait Fish

Lobster boat images have a certain quaintness but often times you have to deal with the smell of the bait shed too.  It's a trade off.

We had salmon the other night, fish is pretty pongy!

The pizza looks delicious, the lighting is perfect. Now I want pizza.

The pizza made me hungry.
The bait shed made me laugh. I was raised by a sport fisherman, so the smell, while not exactly perfume, carries a certain nostalgia.
Luv, K

Oh, you definitely captured "smells" with that pizza image - an example of the best in food photography - it made my mouth water. Not sure about those bait buckets - phew!

I agree capturing smell is a tricky one. Bait shop images are great, all worth a little smell. That pizza looks divine.

Your smells went from one extreme to the other! I'll stick with the delicious smelling pizza! Love the golden tone!

You did a pretty good job of capturing smells, my friend. That mushroom pizza made me hungry. And I was actually holding my breath when I was looking at the bait bucket image! As for skunk...I kind of like that smell, as long as it's just a hint. I'm not so crazy about it when one lets go under my open bedroom window and I wake up with my eyes watering. (We don't have skunks here - that was a special Maine treat.)
