First Round Pics: Food Frames of Sufganiyot

Sufganot2Since this was the big year of the convergence of  Thanksgiving and the first day of Hanukkah (an event that won’t occur for another 70,000 years) what better way to celebrate than going to Israel on a family visit. I brought my new Canon EOS 60D camera ( a holiday present) with me and took my first pictures with it. I still have a lot to learn and can’t believe how much I have forgotten about using a camera with manual settings.  Here are my first food photos.

sufganiyah (Hebrew: סופגנייה‎ or סופגניה; plural, sufganiyot: סופגניות) is a round jelly doughnut eaten in Israel and around the world on the Jewish festival of Hanukkah. The doughnut is deep-fried, filled with jelly or custard, and then topped withpowdered sugar. At Hanukkah, Jewish people observe the custom of eating fried foods in commemoration of the miracle associated with the Temple oil.

  1. Naomi says, “Num-num.” Elan says, “The ones in the foreground on shot #2 are overly chocolatized.” Raffi says, “I would like to eat one of those jelly doughnuts.”
    We all think the photos are awesome! Like you could reach into the glass counter and take one. Yum yum. Can’t wait to see what else you captured with your camera.
