If for some reason you weren”t thinking about food already today, these delightful moving images will make your mouth water. They”re called cinemagraphs, which we”re pretty sure is just a fancy word for .gif, but whatever you call them, they”re equal parts visually gorgeous and drool-inducingly delicious. It”s a feast for the senses!
These lovely images come to us through Kitchen Ghosts, a recipe and photography website headed by photographer Daria Khoroshavina and food stylist Olga Kolesnikov. Together, they create these cinemagraphs to illustrate recipes for various dishes, all of which can be found on the site.
The images call to mind traditional still-life paintings of foods, but with the added dimension of motion that makes them particularly captivating. That, and they”re images of scrumptious-looking food, which is also a surefire way to capture my attention.
You can see more images like these on the Kitchen Ghosts website, and on their Tumblr, as well. And be sure to check out the recipes, so you, too, can enjoy the food you see here. You can”t live on images alone.
