CLICK is a monthly food photography event. It is a theme-based contest. You do not need a blog to participate. Each month, entries will be invited based on a culinary ingredient or concept. More about it HERE.


A newsboy was standing on the corner with a stack of papers, yelling, “Read all about it. Fifty people swindled! Fifty people swindled!” Curious, a man walked over, bought a paper, and checked the front page. Finding nothing, he said, “Theres nothing in here about fifty people being swindled.” The newsboy ignored him and went on, calling out, “Read all about it. Fifty-one people swindled!”

STACK: an orderly pile or heap, especially of things arranged in layers.

“A whole stack of memories never equal one little hope” ~ Charles M. Schulz

Sweet Potato Crisps

They can be many of the same …

Spinach and Spring Onion Scones

or different things.

Savoury Granola Trifle

A stack is usually vertical – e.g. a stack of books.

Mini Herbed Tomato Nut Roasts

It can also be horizontal – a stack of buildings.

100% Whole Wheat Bagels

Stacks of tortillas, cookies, bowls, cookbooks, spatulas, breads, the possibilities are endless.

1. Make them wonder how your picture is related to the theme.

2. Stitch two or three pics together to make a diptych or triptych.

3. Put big borders, text or a dateline. Don’t. Please don’t.

4. Have them use their imagination to excavate your picture from beneath a giant copyright notice.

5. Add anything that distracts from the image.



(available for a month)
