read
Surrealistic "foodscape" photos may make you hungry.

At a quick glance, Carl Warner's photos look like romantic landscape paintings, complete with wild seas, moody skies and rolling hills. Look a little closer, and you discover that the pictoral elements are actually pieces of produce from Warner's local market. The leafy trees? Heads of broccoli. Those seaside stones?
