Outdoor Dining with Fresh Herbs at Your Fingertips
This millstone was found on the property and inspired the idea for repeated circles and curves throughout the landscape. The millstone was fashioned into a table that sits outside the outdoor kitchen area and quickly became a favorite informal dining spot for the homeowners. A tiny herb garden in the center of the table scents the air and flavors the food. The challenge I had here with photographing this table was not to “lose” the herbs in the middle of the table to the green trees and mountains in the background. I used a more shallow depth of field and lined my shot up with the white birches in the background so the herbs would stand out in a photograph.
