more cosmic cookie sheets

These shots were added to the “cosmic cookie sheet’ collection recently.  I’ve been a little lax in shooting for this series and for that I apologize.  I will try to put more effort into it in the future.  Click on any photo to enter the gallery.

Alert readers may have noticed a new page accessible from the top menu called “COSMIC CEMENT”,  an ongoing series of  photos I started years ago.  I like the abstract nature of this series and there seems to a few others ( here and here) also interested in concrete or cement. Check it out if you have time to waste.

      Thanks, Harri. The yellow is olive oil left behind from the roasted asparagus, which was delicious. The asparagus is lightly coated with the oil, roasted in the oven and served. The white background is parchment paper. I liked the color and patterns left behind and shot the sheet using available light.

    Hi Ken. Thanks for the link. Your cosmic series (plural) have trained me to see this kind of thing. And to pick up the camera when I do. However, when I look at cookie sheets my eye usually wanders off in search of the cookies not the camera. A personal failing I would do well to overcome.

    From the detritus of cooking come some wonderful abstracts. These are so good, Ken. I’m just wondering what would happen if I ventured into the kitchen with a camera. I think I might be dispatched swiftly with a blow to the head with a frying pan!

      Thanks, Andy. I would never attempt shooting in the kitchen while there was cooking in progress. I can do whatever I want after dinner, though.

      Thanks, Meanderer. Perhaps ill try this with actual food on them next time. But then I don’t think the results would be so cosmic.

    . . . I like my initial guess a little better, but OK.

    Although I had correctly figured out what the color part was, I did not think of parchment paper (I’m used to it not being white).

    I also think you put more effort into your concrete shots than the two links you provided.

      Thanks, E. We don’t care about the color of the paper but the white was on sale so that’s what we got.
      The cement shots are carefully edited with some dodging and burning, sometimes at the pixel level, to get them to look that way but it’s all in keeping with the nature of the subject. Being an old darkroom technician, I want to bring out the best in a photo and that carried over into digital.

        That’s one thing I’ve yet to get into; really processing a photo to that level. I’ve read about it, but have not put it into practice.
