I haven’t yet taken the tumblr plunge myself, but I have been finding that more and more of the interesting images I come across online lead me back to someone’s tumblr. Most of these are tumblrs I would happily follow were I to have my own, so I really should get on that! But in the meantime, I’m just appreciating this photo-heavy platform as an outsider looking eagerly in. As for my most recent, exciting tumblr discovery? That would have to be scandybars.tumblr.com. Seriously – you have to check it out!
With the tagline “Like a Blog in a Candy Store”, there was really no question that I was about to love whatever it was Scandybars was doing. I just didn’t realize how much I would love it until I was many, many pages deep. I think it’s safe to assume that most if not all of you are avid candy fans like me – people with an affinity for the sweet stuff that goes beyond a simple appreciation. And while I do appreciate beautiful candy displays and candy stores, or candy elegantly presented in any of myriad ways, Scandybars is different than anything I can recall. It’s somehow personal and modern, giving us a peek inside each of the delectable treats they feature, laid vulnerable and almost 3-dimensional against a stark white background.
Each treat is oh-so-perfectly captured to really give life to the sweets. This photographer not only has an amazing camera (Or scanner as the name would imply? Not sure exactly how they‘re doing it!), but also a very sharp knife! While I find myself browsing purely for how intriguing the photos/scans are, Scandybars would also make a good resource for someone who wanted a peek inside a candy before they bought it. I hope you love Scandybars as much as I do – they’ll be my first follow if I ever get on tumblr!
