Black & White Sunday: These are two of my favourite things…

This week, Paula has asked us to choose our subject…as food and wine are a couple of things that I love, and I enjoy taking the occasional still life, here is my offering (and you may also observe that my ironing skills are lacking):


Cheese, wine and a crumpled tablecloth

I am very partial to a well matured cheese – in this case Tomme de Savoie and Stinking Bishop, (which is à point at this time of year). Hadn’t been able to get the latter for a year or two now, so it was nice to re-aquaint myself with it’s pongy charms!

More Black&White Sunday here.


  1. I hate ironing, and do not care for ironed cloths, but I love matured cheese. I am not familiar with these two types. Love your choice for the theme 🙂 Prost, Sue! Salud!

  3. Two of my favorite things as well, Sue. Ironing is not one of them.


  4. Lovely composition – over all and in its parts – I love wine and cheese too, and my tablecloths are inevitably crumpled from being scrunched in the kitchen drawer. Stinking Bishop is a favourite too, and at the mo the very disgraceful Delice de Bourgoyne (spelling might be amiss here)

    • Sue

      Looks like we are on the same path, Tish! Except that I recall not being especially impressed with Delice de Bourgogne when I’ve had it…give me Époisses or Langres instead. Another favourite is Vacherin….

  5. Oh, so very tempting! Cheers, Sue
    I hate ironing too but I do like your cloth

  6. Beautiful work :-)) I like the two as well. Have a great evening.

  7. Love a nice still life, love wine (red for preference), and love (most but not blue) cheese. All three in one shot, you got me!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  8. Wrinkles are aesthetically pleasing, a roughened up texture. And ironing is such a waste of time. Don’t iron and there’s more time for cheese and wine! And the construction of elegant still lifes.

  9. A fine choice – my favourite is Pecorino Stagionato but I have never seen it locally,

  10. If I had to choose then I would leave the cheese!

  11. You created a lovely mood with your still life Sue , what’s a crumple between friends 🙂 I’d have to miss the cheese but I’d join you in a glass or two !

  12. Can’t say I’m fussed about the wine, but the cheese looks good!

  13. I’m with you there Sue! Very nice still life! 🙂

  14. I can live with crumples. My problem is more often red wine stains 🙂 🙂 And they’re so unphotogenic! Pass the cheese, Sue! None of the wormy ones for me, though.

  15. Ironed or not I will be right over to share that picnic with you. 🙂
    Is my web site still causing you problems?

  16. Oh we do feast on cheese and wine this time of the year as well… So many great cheeses in the world…

  17. Never mind the ironing – enjoy the image. I’m just glad we haven’t reached the stage in technology when images come with smells attached. Stinking Bishop – I wonder how a bishop got involved in the naming of that cheese?

  18. I don’t like cheese, but I like the feeling in this photo.

  19. Emilio Pasquale

    Never tried that type of cheese, but it does look a lot like camembert, which I love. I do prefer red wine over white, though. So I’ll bring my own bottle! 🙂
