~ First we eat, then we do everything else ~ M.F.K Fisher

Well said! Food is in every essence of one’s livelihood. It’s the string that brings people together and the salvation in any occasion – happy and sad. As simple as a mug of hot chocolate or a basket of fresh seasonal berries, a good photograph says it all.

And 123RF Contributor Sergey Fatin surely knows his food. We couldn’t stop salivating over his yummy looking spread shot from the top. Though the presentation is simple, Sergey’s photography speaks for itself and depicts food in its most natural form. No frills, just the art of seasonal ingredients and comfort favorites captured on film. Check out these pretty morsels of delight:
