A Sweet & Salty Photoshoot

Hello, my friends!

I have a rather random but fun collection of photos for you guys today. My friend Aria sent each other Dutch licorice a while back since we both love it, and whenever I get Dutch licorice I can’t help but photograph it. 😛 It’s just such photogenic candy! If you’ve never had it before, it usually tastes like regular licorice but a bit saltier and more molasses-like. Click here to see the website where we bought it.

Anyway, these photos are certainly not life-changing or anything, but I hope they sweeten your day a little bit. 🙂 Enjoy the results of me playing with my food!

It makes for really dramatic, artistic-looking photos, and was also used a lot by master painters like Rembrandt.
