Honey Lemon Shot 344/365 One of my favourite (of many) quotes from the West Wing: • Lord Marbury : You know, there are some marvelous flu remedies known in the certain remote parts of the subcontinent. Licorice root, for instance, combined with bamboo sap and a strong shot of whiskey. Ginger root, also, mixed with, uh, citrus peel. Bartlett : And a strong shot of whiskey? Lord Marbury : Actually, you can leave everything out except the shot of whiskey and you’d still be well on your way. • At this point, your Lordship, I’m willing to give it a try... #judgeshootsfood365 #flushot • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #tv_stilllife #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #fromscratch #beautifulcuisines #hautecuisines #honeylemon #whiskeydrinks #homeremedies
Ink Blot Test 343/365 Few foods are quite as gloriously asymmetrical as ginger. But there are ways to change that... 😉 What do you see? #judgeshootsfood365 #interpretiveknifeskills (P.S., still haven’t shifted this sickness, which is why I’ll have to catch up on yesterday’s photo. I’ve been generally quite lucky with not getting sick this year, so of course at the very end my luck had to change... 🙄) • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #irishfoodphotographer #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #whatdoyousee #inkblot #rorschach #beautifulginger
Pattern Therapy 342/365 Because when you’re sick, you can eat whatever you darn well please!

The Backbone Of World Cuisine 340/365 Is there any major food culture that doesn’t heavily feature garlic? North African, Middle Eastern, Far Asian, Central American, European... If you like good food, there’s no escaping it. Good thing I love it! I was in a new specialty grocers in Dublin the other day, and I saw, and then smelled, these hanging braids of smoked garlic. I had no choice but to throw my money at them. The smell alone is worth the price, but I can’t wait to start cooking with it! #judgeshootsfood365 #wishyoucouldsmellthis • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #fineartphotography #inmykitchen #lifeandthyme #thatsdarling #beautifulcuisines #smoked #smokedgarlic #garlicbraid #garlic
The Holiday Spirit Strikes Again 338/365 I think I’ve put off embracing Christmassy stuff long enough. I’ve been scoffing at shops decorating themselves since before Halloween had even passed, but now it’s the second week of December and definitely past the point of no return. At this time of year, we tend to start going crazy with homemade sweet treats! For ten months, I’d rarely even touch a tin of treacle, golden syrup, or condensed milk. But once winter properly rolls in, they certainly help to brighten up a dark evening. And so I’ll always associate these old-fashioned tins with Christmas. What I particularly love about condensed milk, is that it tastes almost identical to white chocolate. Seriously, try a spoonful. I mean, they’re both basically pure sugar, but one comes by the tin-load, so, you know, clear winner. And just a wandering thought of an evening... Growing up in Catholic Ireland, even though I’m an atheist, it was never “the holidays”, it was always simply Christmas. When I first heard that North Americanism, I had to have it explained how the mixture of different cultures and beliefs meant that it would be a little silly to assume everyone would just be celebrating Christmas. It seems a perfectly reasonable and sensible compromise. And while I can understand the natural reaction from some of us to be defensive of traditional culture, let me put it this way: In Ireland, there is an ancient monument built 3,000 years before a man named Jesus was called Christ, built before the Pyramids of Giza. This tomb, this Newgrange, was built by these megalithic architects in a very specific way. It was built so that at dawn, at one single time in the year, the winter solstice, a shaft of sunlight would run the full length of the main passage and illuminate the very back of the chamber. This Stone Age society took the very best technology available to them, and used it to celebrate mid-winter. We have always, always, celebrated a solstice holiday. It simply goes by many different names. #judgeshootsfood365 #happyholidays • • • • • • #CY365 #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #hautecuisines #beautifulcuisines
Droppin’ Drops 336/365 When my brother was younger, he suffered from terrible travel sickness. Long car journeys or trips on the ferry across to France would have him in a right state. One thing that helped a little, was sucking on boiled sweets. I don’t know if there’s anything to it other than a distraction, but it seemed to work. Of course, a seven year old me was deeply offended by the idea that some of us were getting sweets, when the rest of us weren’t! Even after it was explained to me that they were essentially medicine for my brother, I still grumbled, claiming favouritism. #judgeshootsfood365 #jealousyknowsnobounds • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #hautecuisines #coughdrops #cherrydrops
Wild Smoked Salmon 335/365 This weekend’s hashtag project is about the things that inspire you. And it would be easy to say that, well, everything and anything can cause a burst of inspiration. It would also be true to say that if we really knew exactly what inspires us, then our lives as creators would be that much easier. That our thoughts are so often completely preoccupied with that unending search for inspiration. But ultimately, that would also be only half the story. Because even though a muse might be a moving target, most of us do have a good idea where to start the hunt. And while I can take inspiration from films I love, or artists of all disciplines that I admire... from events in my life, or events in the news... from beautifully imagined virtual worlds, or from the rich cultures around this small world of our own... in the end, the inspiration always, really, comes from the food. The staff at my local supermarket must quite seriously believe I’m crazy at this point, because several times a week I can be found staring intently at some item of produce or another, turning it over in my hand, willing it to speak to me. Sometimes an idea will come easily. Sometimes, it does not. But it always comes, and it comes from the food. Smoked salmon on brown bread with fresh dill and a squeeze of lemon juice is a quintessentially Irish starter, that’s particularly popular around Christmas. To me it’s a sign of the holidays coming when the shops stock up on these glistening slices of bright orange. Farmed salmon is increasingly popular, but nothing beats the flavour of wild smoked salmon. Whatever that might look like... #whpinspired #judgeshootsfood365 #gillsgonewild • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #fromscratch #beautifulcuisines #hautecuisines #smokedsalmon
Start Well 334/365 Okay bros and broettes, here’s your breakfast. Twice baked bread with caramelised banana and walnuts, topped with natural yogurt. If you’ve never twice baked your bread, get ready to have your mind blown. Take a loaf (or whatever’s left of a loaf) of bread that’s a couple days old, and splash water all over it. Let it soak in for a minute, then pop it in the oven for 15-20 minutes. When it comes out, it will be like you just bought it. Actually, unless you bought it the second it came out of the baker’s hot oven, it’ll be better than when you just bought it! In the meantime, heat a pan with about half a teaspoon of sugar and around a tablespoon of butter. Chuck in some broken walnuts, and then a banana sliced in three, lengthways. Fry for two or three minutes until golden, then flip. Get your bread out of the oven, and slice through it’s newly crispy crust. Pop the slices back in the oven for a minute to toast a little, then grab em and drape the banana on top. Spoon on a big dollop of the very best yoghurt you can get your hands on, and then top with the walnuts and caramelised butter sauce. You can thank me later. #judgeshootsfood365 #startasyoumeantogoon (P.S., I took what was supposed to be a quick nap yesterday evening, but apparently I must have smashed the snooze button on my iPhone with such ferocious intent that I crashed the Alarm app. Which... I didn’t know was possible. I woke up in the middle of the night, with my phone knowing that it had an alarm set, but unable to do anything about it, and it just kept crashing and restarting over and over. So I’ve spent my morning resetting my phone to factory settings, and then restoring from a backup. I had to wait until it was done before I could post!) • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #foodstagram #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #creativephotography #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #fromscratch #beautifulcuisines #bananabreakfast #hautecuisines
If You Liked It Then You Shoulda Put An Onion Ring On It 333/365 11 onion rings. 11 months! Isn’t it amazing how November 30th lasts all the way through to 1pm the following day?! (Anyone who tries to tell me different will not be getting a Christmas card 😑) Rings. Commitment. Historically, I haven’t been the best at it. This project is arguably the single biggest commitment I’ve ever made. I felt like I had dropped it there for a couple of weeks, and I was terribly unimpressed with myself. To make it all the way to ten months, only to feel like this project was going to get away from me... not good. And I know it’s not exactly in the spirit of a 365 to play catch up and do four photos in one day (using the word very, very loosely here), I still feel much better now that I’m back to where I want to be. Or at least, I will. After a couple of hours sleep. Here’s looking at you, December. May the best man win. #judgeshootsfood365 #zzz • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #lifeandthyme #thatsdarling #fromscratch #beautifulcuisines #onionrings #commitmentissues #hautecuisines
Drying Weather 332/365 It’s now officially winter (though on the record I may be denying that, as I still have one photo left to shoot before I admit that November has indeed come to an end!), so it’s less and less likely that I can do any drying outside. Even if it is just a few sheets of pasta for a lasagne... Oh well, guess I’ll just have to eat it fresh! Making fresh pasta is actually really quite simple. It’s a great way to really make an impression in the kitchen, because it turns so many easy-peasy pasta dishes into something special. Alternate title: 3 Sheets to the Wind. Because I’m so tired I feel drunk. #judgeshootsfood365 #nowihaveflourinmycamera (P.S., three down, one to go. But the day is not out until I fall asleep!

Two Rights Don’t Make A Wrong 330/365 Affogato. I know some people would proclaim it a waste of good ice cream, and others would decry it as a waste of good coffee... but how could it be wrong when it tastes so right? #judgeshootsfood365 #imasimpleman (P.S., okay, it’s on.

Eruption 328/365 My life has been relatively caffeine free. Tea, red bull, coke, and yes, coffee. I rarely drink them. For the most part, I just grab a glass of water. Exciting, right? But there’s something really very appealing about the cult of coffee. The different types of bean, types of roast, styles and methods of making it... It seems like a fun thing to get into. But the problem I’ve always had is that I simply never got used to the taste. If I didn’t like it, what would be the point? But my ex wouldn’t take no for an answer, and she taught me how to use a moka pot, and watched carefully as I choked down my cup of espresso in the morning. Where others failed, she succeeded. Not by making me enjoy the taste, but by making me enjoy the process. She’d always point at the little pot, bubbling away, and say “that would make a good photo!” She was right, of course. But that was time for coffee making, not photo taking. #judgeshootsfood365 #stillneedsugartho • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #foodstagram #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #artofvisuals #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #lifeandthyme #thatsdarling #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #hautecuisines #moka #mokapot #mokacoffee #makingcoffee #coffeegram
Drip Drip Drip Coffee 327/365 I can’t pretend to understand the science of coffee, but I love watching the bloom appear when making pour-over. It’s such a beautiful contrast to the richly coloured ground beans, and it seems to rise up out of nowhere after adding just a few splashes of water. And then you get hit with that unmistakeable aroma... It’s hard not to fall in love with the quiet ritual. A little ironic, perhaps, that the act of preparing a stimulant should be so relaxing. #judgeshootsfood365 #coffeethoughts • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #inmykitchen #lifeandthyme #thatsdarling #fromscratch #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #hautecuisines #riseandgrind #pourovercoffee
Rise Up 324/365 Citrus Detail. I rarely get a chance to do true macro for food (up reeeeeeally close, food can look pretty funky 😅), but fruit is my exception. The biological term for this part of the fruit is vesicles, but I just call ‘em juice pods! And to me, they look like beautiful deep-sea creatures. #judgeshootsfood365 #whatdoyousee • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #lifeandthyme #thatsdarling #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #citrus #pomelo
Too Much of a Good Thing 322/365 Apologies for this rather odd little post. I had planned to do another coffee shot today, to continue a mini-series, but the night had other plans for me. In the shops today I saw some special offer on Pomelo and a gorgeous, huge, locally grown cauliflower. Pomelo, for those who don’t know (among which I would have counted myself just this afternoon) is like a melon sized grapefruit. It’s the largest citrus fruit, and while it’s far less bitter than its closest cousin, it’s less juicy. More tough, so you can actually eat it in chunks. Tough, of course, means fibrous, and fibre is good for you! So I ate the whole thing for a starter. For the main course, I coated the entire head of cauliflower in a Dijon based sauce, and roasted it until tender. This is one chunk of it, which I felt like taking a quick photograph of (luckily, it turns out) because I liked its shape, but had, in my haste already taken a bite out of... Cauliflower is also very, very high in fibre, and fibre is good for you! So I ate the whole thing. A little while later, I started getting some minor stomach cramps. Steadily, they got worse and worse. Many of us fail to regularly get enough fibre in our diet, and that likely includes myself. What I had just eaten in the space of two hours, was maybe close to 10 times more fibre than I would usually get in a day. It turns out, the body can only quite gradually adjust to changes in fibre intake. Apparently, I had potentially eaten my way to a medical emergency. I promptly drank two glasses of warm water, and did jumping jacks until I got the desired effect. Pro-tip if you ever need to do this, never drink cold water - It is a horrifyingly unrefreshing experience coming back up. Anyway, after that my stomach got the hint and took over from there, and now I’ve been lying on the bathroom floor for 3 and a half hours. I tried to post this earlier, but I literally couldn’t look at my computer. This was not my best night ever. #judgeshootsfood365 #nowwasntthatfun
Pour a Cup of Coffee 321/365 Oh dear oh my... I was supposed to catch up on a photo this weekend, but instead I let slip ANOTHER! Yikes. I think I need to wake up, and I may have found just the thing... In all seriousness though, I’m really surprised at how badly I fell off the wagon these past couple of days. The combination of a little post-holiday blues, as well as slamming into a cold snap and a shockingly early sunset (the hour shifted back just as I left Ireland, which was pretty much hidden by southern Portugal’s longer evenings, but made for a double whammy hit when I returned to Dublin) meant that I’ve been a little thrown off my game, and can’t seem to get into the right headspace for this project. I think I’ve found a solution, which has been helpful a couple of other times that I started to lose motivation this year... A mini-series! And nothing could be a more fitting wake-up call than a short series on coffee 😄 I’m on the home stretch now, so it would be terrible disappointing if I came this far just to let the ball drop. #judgeshootsfood365 #getbuzzed • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #coffeeart #coffeebeans
Remnants 319/365 Left behind. This will have to be my last photo dwelling on the marvellous physalis (aka Cape Gooseberry, aka Ground Cherry). It’s a fascinating fruit, that only grows more curious as it develops. I’m not quite sure what causes some of the papery cases to remain perfectly intact, while others turn to spider-web skeletons. Perhaps it’s down to weather. Perhaps it happens when they fall prematurely. Or perhaps they’re just a little bit sad. #judgeshootsfood365 #reflections • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #lifeandthyme #thatsdarling #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #physalis #groundcherry #capegooseberry
Welcome Home 318/365 I arrived back in Dublin early yesterday evening, to a prematurely darkening, damp, grey sky. After getting in the door and unpacking my bags, I opened the fridge door with a view to plan a photo. After staring vacantly into that void for a few minutes, I said “sod this!” And went to bed early. After two weeks of bright sun and fresh fish, it’s definitely a little underwhelming to come home to the beginnings of an Irish winter. So today I prescribed a pick-me-up in the form of my childhood. Sausages, rashers, fried tomatoes, sunny-side up eggs and baked beans, all smashed together between two potato waffles and squirted with ketchup. Because I was such a classy kid. #judgeshootsfood365 #icallitthegoodmorning (P.S., If I get a chance, I’ll do a second photo tonight. Otherwise, I’ll have to catch up over the weekend!) • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #beautifulcuisines #f52simple #breakfasttime #breakfastgram
Accessorise 317/365 The piri-piri chilli is practically a symbol of Portugal. Not many dishes here are overtly spicy, but this particular pepper has found a place in the hearts of the Portuguese, flavouring their classic flame-roasted chicken. Walking through markets, merchants can always be seen selling the chillis tied together in long strings. Turns out they make for good taste in more ways than one... #judgeshootsfood365 #itsgettinghotinhere (P.S., This was my last day here in Lagos, and I’ll be flying home to Ireland tomorrow 😢 I’ve gotten far too accustomed to the sun here, and I have a feeling I’ll be in for a bit of a shock when I arrive in Dublin...) • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #foodporn #vscofood #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #fineartphotography #creativephotography #hotstuff #foodportrait #inmykitchen #lifeandthyme #thatsdarling #beautifulcuisines #objectsforoutfits #foodfashion #periperi #piripiri
Fire Containment Measures 315/365 Portuguese wildfires, stoppered. I met a Bosnian, living in Portugal for 35 years now, who makes and sells her own beeswax candles, marinade sauces and, as you can see, chilli infused oils. Light from the open doorway spilled in and illuminated the red, orange and yellow bottles, making them appear to glow from inside, lit by the heat of their own fire. #whpfindthelight #judgeshootsfood365 #hotstuffcomingthrough • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #fromscratch #beautifulcuisines #hautecuisines #chillioil #infusion #infusedoil
Decisions Decisions 314/365 Got up at the crack of dawn this morning, early enough to watch the sun rise from the ocean and paint the sides of whitewashed buildings pink. Early enough, more importantly, to be among the first to arrive at the Lagos Farmers’ Market. Held in the warehouse-like garages of the bus depot, the venue is flooded with flat, incandescent lighting from high up in the rafters. But at the back, where producers from all over the region were still carting in their wares for the day, a beautiful soft morning light was streaming in.

Giver of Life 313/365 The day only starts with a Pastel de Nata, the Portuguese custard tart that makes even people who hate custard tarts crave a custard tart. Crisp, flakey pastry surrounding a smooth, creamy filling. And I swear our local bakery finishes them with a lemon glaze, which just... Mmm! Lifts the whole thing to another level. These little pastries simply make the whole day seem a little brighter. #judgeshootsfood365 #letthesunshine #whpfindthelight • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #creativephotography #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #beautifulcuisines #pasteldenata #pasteisdenata #custardtart #portuguesepastry
All in Favour of Spatchcock? 309/365 Once you’ve gone spatchcock, you never go back 😉 Seriously, the best way to cook a whole chicken. It’s recommended as a way to prepare birds for the barbecue, but there’s no reason you shouldn’t be doing it for oven-roast chicken too. Crispy, juicy, evenly cooked, and done in half the time.

Happy as a Clam 305/365 Last night we ate out in town, and we found ourselves sat next to a man with the most remarkably fascinating life. An ex-Special Marine in the Portuguese Navy, a speaker of was it ten? twelve languages? (we ran out of fingers), an avid photographer and an all ‘round rogue. Among the many stories he shared with us, carefully tucked in was his personal favourite method for cooking clams. So tonight, there really was no question as to what was on the menu. A generous splash of olive oil in a hot pan, a handful of smashed garlic cloves, a smattering of black pepper, a piri-piri or two, of you’re so inclined. Empty in a kilo of fresh clams, and as much torn coriander as you like. Once the clams are all open, squeeze in a lemon, then thrown the whole thing in too while you’re at it. Give it 30 seconds, then bring it to the table with a hunk of crusty bread. Heaven. Some people go out and pick up girls. I pick up a recipe 😎😂 Welcome to Lagos. #judgeshootsfood365 #foreveralone • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #fromscratch #beautifulcuisines #clams #portuguesefood #portuguesecuisine
Chocolate Coated 303/365 10 (ghoulish) chocolate fingers, to celebrate 10 months! 🧟‍♂️ Once again, I find excuses to “clean up” large amounts of chocolate 😋 So long October, you’ve been good to me. For the first two weeks of November, I’ll be in the South of Portugal. Which means the photos to come will likely be a little different!

Plant the Seed 300/365 Holy shamoly! Three Hundred photos, in (just over) three hundred days. It really is starting to feel like the end is coming up fast. When I decided, almost a year ago, that I was going to start this project, I obviously hoped that I would take it at least this far. But I don’t know that I really had any idea what that would mean. Just how consuming a project it would be to take on. But I did it anyway, because I liked the idea. I did it because I wanted a new outlet for my photography. A new excuse to shoot every day, to push myself every day. To try different things, to grow, to learn. I didn’t predict that my photos would look anything like this. But I’m sure glad they do. Because they’re more “me” than anything I’d done before. We don’t always know where our ideas will take us. But the first step is always to plant that seed. #judgeshootsfood365 #hashtagdeep • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #fineartphotography #creativephotography #fineartfood #foodart #lifeandthyme #thatsdarling #beautifulcuisines #inspiration
Half a Dozen Eggs 299/365 So many different ways... what’s your favourite? I’ve been wanting to do this shot for about a month now! I kept putting it off, and my eggs kept going off. But I finally pulled it off, and now I can check it off! #judgeshootsfood365 #eggtactular (P.S., oh man. I’ve been so busy this past week, trying to get all my projects finished before I head off to Portugal for two weeks on Halloween! Last night, I realised I had been running completely on fumes, so I had a cup of cocoa and went to bed early (for me). Don’t worry, I plan to catch up on the photo I missed tomorrow. That’s what Sundays are for, right? 😉) • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #foodporn #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #igersdublin #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #fromscratch #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #egglover
We are blown away. Socks, right off. One of our amazing customers has got our goodies halfway across the world and into the hands of an insanely talented photographer.

Lollipop of DOOM! 293/365 Halloween is fast approaching, and with the sudden stormy turn in the weather, I’m starting to get in the mood. As a kid, I absolutely loved Halloween. Leaves were crunchy, costumes were exciting, and sweets were literally everywhere you turned. What’s not to love? But once I was a teenager, and I’d grown out of trick-or-treating... I lost my love of it. It became such a non-event. By now, I’ve realised that like most things in life, Halloween is what you make of it. Some of the best parties I’ve ever been to were on October 31st. And dressing up is every bit as fun as it was when I was 7. #judgeshootsfood365 #thecandymancometh (P.S., I was fooling around with this photo, and for fun I duplicated it and placed them side by side, to make Hypno-toad. I could watch that guy for hours...) • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #foodporn #foodstylist #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #igersdublin #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #halloweencandy #halloweentreats #spookytreats #lollipop #candyman #hautecuisines
Try Stopping This 289/365 And that’s it for the gobstopper triptych! This was a real family effort. My brother bought me some nostalgia inducing sweets in the hopes that it would spur some photo ideas (and it looks like it worked!), and then for this photo, I thought it would be fun to get my dear mother to help out. She wasn’t too keen on swinging the hammer, but she was game to push the shutter. She’s got sharp reflexes, that one! #judgeshootsfood365 #familybusiness • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #onmytable #beautifulcuisines #actionshot #highspeedphotography #gobstopper #smashingfood
Gob-Stoppered 287/365 I spent about an hour today reading through the stories that @cameronrussell has been sharing from models working in the fashion industry about their experiences with sexual assault and sexual harassment at the hands of photographers. I urge you to read them yourself and follow the hashtag #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse Even as a child, I was told stories of how common it is for aspiring models to be “taken advantage of”. Sexually assaulted, would have been the better way to say it. It might seem logical to think that once this becomes common knowledge, even to people who don’t work in the industry, that something would have to change. But the reality is that it becomes a sort of permission to predators. “It’s how this business works” has apparently become a self justification for these photographers to force themselves upon even minors. It’s hard not to read these stories and be physically repulsed. But maybe the most powerful aspect of the accounts being shared, and Cameron’s message, is that this goes beyond that vague knowledge that this stuff happens. It is so systemic, so ingrained, that so many models, agents, editors, stylists... they literally know the photographers who are behaving so morally reprehensibly, not to mention criminally, and still nothing is done. The silence is deafening. I don’t work in fashion, but I felt the need to make a photo on this topic. When someone volunteers to step into a photoshoot, the photographer has been given power. And they have a responsibility to honour the trust that is required to give someone that power. To violate that trust so completely, is an added level of reprehensible. This culture needs to change. #judgeshootsfood365
Precious Tears 286/365 Still the purest way to harvest coconut water. You don’t want to know what I said to make it cry... Thus completes my coconut triptych!

Dancing Katsuobushi 283/365 Around the corner from where I lived in Japan sat a little Okonomiyaki restaurant. It was my first experience of this strange beast known as the “Japanese Pizza”, a name which certainly doesn’t come close to adequately explaining it. Shredded cabbage mixed with a light batter and almost any additional combination of goodies that you could think up. The name pretty much translates to “whatever-you-like, grilled”. But whatever you do like, the classic topping is a slathering of rich, Worcestershire-based sauce, a spiral of Japanese mayo, and a generous sprinkling of microscopically thinly shaved dried tuna, or katsuobushi. As soon as the feather-like flakes hit the gently steaming dish, they come to life and begin to dance. It’s a beautiful thing, and it started my love affair with this uniquely Japanese creation. How much time did I spend in that little restaurant? Well let’s just say that when I left Japan, the owner-chef gave me a goodbye gift. #judgeshootsfood365 #youcanhavewhateveryoulike • • • • • • #CY365 #foodporn #vscofood #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishfoodstylist #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #fromscratch #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #お好み焼き #かつおぶし #日本食 #japanesefood #okonomiyaki
Interpretive Candy Floss 282/365 About a year ago now I took a short series of photos of clouds, just as an exercise in doing something a bit different from what I was usually shooting. I cropped, rotated, and heavily processed the shots to emphasise shapes that I saw in them. Pareidolia, is the term. The phenomenon of human perception, where we identify familiar patterns even where they don’t exist. Is what we see a reflection of our deepest thoughts? Or the most shallow result of simple suggestion? One could spend a lot of time self analysing what we recognise in the shifting movements of clouds... But what I really enjoyed most about the whole thing was that it made me look up a lot more. Searching for meaning in candy floss also has it’s own perks *scoff scoff scoff* #judgeshootsfood365 #whatdoyousee • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #fineartphotography #creativephotography #lifeandthyme #thatsdarling #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #cottoncandy #candyfloss
To Every Thing There Is A Season 280/365 I was convinced that I would have a cool idea for a photo that would use a full ear of corn, in the husk. So convinced was I, that when they came both into season and shop windows, I bought them right away. An idea will come, I thought to myself. Just wait, and inspiration shall strike. And so my corn waited. And waited. And now they are no longer in season.

Off With His Head 279/365 Bit obsessed with Cabbages at the moment, sorry. I picked up a couple of really good looking Savoys from the grocer’s, and it’s just been too tempting to keep shooting them.
