Peeps are back!
I'm not really a fan of the sugary, marshmallow creatures, but since they make an appearance at our house every March, it seems we have a photographic tradition on our hands. I think the possible seizure-inducing color of these snacks is what makes them so interesting (unless sugar-flavored glue is making a comeback). Either way, we end up getting some images each year and I have to tell you it gets hard trying to come up with something interesting. I'm more in favor of using them for color and repetitive shapes in a shot, whereas my wife's ideas turn towards the "diorama" style where the Peeps are actually doing something. Please. I'm already self-conscious enough about photographing candy... don't make me play with it like they're my dolls. Besides, my real dolls would get jealous. I've only included a few shots here, but if you'd like to see the photo essay on JPG you can check it out here:
