Sweet Earth Chocolates - San Luis Obispo

I can't believe I haven't posted any new work here since the beginning of the year. I'd love to say that it's because I've been busy helping Brittany plan our wedding, because that sounds very reasonable and responsible. But, being honest, my excuse is chickens, and the other assorted backyard (and frontyard) projects that we've started since our move to "the country."

A couple months ago I shot these images of some of Sweet Earth Chocolates' tasty treats. Their shop is just half a block down the street from my office, and it can be difficult to avoid the temptation to go there too often. Haven't been? Go check them out, and if you're a fan of mint and chocolate, definitely don't miss the peppermint patties.

The concept for these images was inspired by some of the beautiful photography by Deborah Jones in Thomas Keller's cookbook, Ad Hoc At Home.
