I have a sneaking suspicion that cheese makes an excellent photographic subject, being so quiet, tasty and well-behaved.
Perhaps, it may very well be the dream of every newborn cheese wheel to one day grow to become a beautiful cheese model. Can't you just see these cheeses promoting products, agencies, events, clothing lines and the sort?
I'm sure these natural beauties need little airbrushing, and they're far from waify.

I believe these cheesy beauts are well poised for long, successful careers.
Don't forget to smile all the livelong day and remember to "Say Cheese".
