Food As Art – Is This Weird or Is It Wonderful?
Photographer Carl Warner has created these pictures from food. Working in layers, he has laboriously constructed landscapes using food, and then taken perfectly composed photographs.

I think it’s weird AND wonderful. Take a look at his other pictures here.
