Carl Warner: Foodscapes

From the BBC:
Incredibly, everything you see in this image can be found in the kitchen. Photographer Carl Warner has painstakingly captured all kinds of food in a series of still lifes...To give a realistic three-dimensional feel to the photographs, each still life is composed on a table measuring 8ft by 4ft. The foreground is only about 2ft across...Each scene is photographed in separate layers to prevent the food from wilting. "I like the way smaller aspects of nature resembled larger ones," says Carl Warner.

You must see these larger on Carl Warner's website (click on "fotographics" and then the folder "foodscapes"). They are phenomenal.

Thanks Slashfood.

Toilet Restaurant: Um, No thanks

These are pictures from a restaurant in Taiwan called Modern Toilet. Diners eat food resembling poo (including curry and soft serve chocolate ice cream) from toilet and urinal shaped dishes while sitting on refurbished toilets. Count me out.

Creepy Hand Soap

Hand soap, literally. It looks like the seller has sold a lot of these. The idea is cute, but disturbing. Hopefully this is not made from the fat of liposuction patients (like in the movie Fight Club).
