No, there's no post here. Not at all. But since everyone is still talkin' tomatoes and some of the best of the year are still left to be enjoyed (late summer rules folks!) I thought I'd put up an image I took last month at a shoot in NYC.

That's it! Just a photo, nothing else!

Hey, did you know there’s no post here?! Just checking…

That photo should be on the cover of a cookbook!

awesome f’ing photo.

Pretty. It looks delicious.

Louise August 22, 2008 at 7:37 am

Wow. And even more wow.

Was thinking of you this morning as I posted possibly the worst tomato photo in history. I’m thinking that a new camera is in my near future just for pride’s sake. But still, you’ll always be #1.

Hey! This food stylist wants to know……

Did you mean for the tomato in question to be all wizened? Is it some sort of partially dried tomato, like on purpose?

Chanelle,
The edges may be slightly serrated, but wizened? It looks young and spry to me. Of course, I’m a little sensitive today. One of my fourth grade students thought I was in my sixties when I’m actually twenty years younger. And now here I am empathizing with a tomato. I need a drink.

what does wizened mean? the pic is very cool. and yes, late summer rocks. I eat a bagel with cream cheese and tomato every morning for breakfast. I am literally excited to wake up just so I can eat tomatoes. Is that strange?

Hey Matt of Matt’s Kitchen. Regarding the wizened tomato, it’s C. (me) and not Chanelle. Though I’m sure a few of my friends would understand the confusion. ;)

Sometimes, just seeing something beautiful is enough. Take last night for example.

You and Adam are amazing. It was so wonderful watching you two enjoy the bounty of food and even more great getting to know you!

I look forward to hanging out with you again!

I could talk about tomatoes all day anyway. I can’t think of anything more tasty than a red ripe tomato plucked off the vine this time of year.

Despite the fact that it is HUGE tomato season even here in the post-soggy waning summer of Albuquerque, this photo made me think of one of my favorite year-round things when heirloom just ain’t happenin’: a 2# box of sweet grape tomatoes from Costco for $5.

That’s exactly what the buggers look like.

what do talking tomatoes say?

Deb Puchalla August 26, 2008 at 9:31 am

OMG. Where can I buy a big ole print for my kitchen? Can it be a series? Please?

Jaden, Steamy Kitchen August 26, 2008 at 2:50 pm

I’ll buy a print too!
