My friend Bruce Miller and I have been discussing this imagery. We both understand that that we're viewing stock photography to be used in print ads promoting healthy dining or to flog salad dressing.
Taken out of context, though, viewed by someone from the 535th century or an aboriginal Australian, someone who does not know women of our time want to be slim, these images would be a puzzle. If they have lettuce where they are then they will know that a salad is something that needs concentration, willpower, some free time, and strong molars to grind through. Hardly a laughing matter.
Taken as a whole the images are, to me, slightly weird. I don't recall ever hearing about women alone eating salad, laughing. Miller tells me that he has never witnessed such a thing.
Maybe some of the ladies can comment on this. Click on the Comment link, below. You can leave your comment anonymously if you wish. Tell us: do you, anyone you know, laugh while eating salad alone?
