The word "vegetable" conjures different things in different people. Perhaps overcooked and tasteless and "I'm not eating that" to fresh, crunchy and flavorful. As a photographer with an interest in details, I can't help but analyze both the inside and outside of certain vegetables, looking for the design, color, and patina. So just when you thought things couldn't get any weirder in my blog, I present cabbage and onions.
The outsides of cabbages are a little like a fine fabric that has pleats and folds pressed into it, radiating from the bottom along the center line all the way to the top.
The sheen or patina on this red cabbage just seems to glow in the light.
And the tightness of individual layers are pure design wonder, a little like the rocks on which this cross-section sits.
Onions - whether wild or cultivated - say "botanical" to me - with or without flowers.
Nothing like that windswept look from a vegetable.
Photographic subjects can be found anywhere, near or far, and I trust that many of you will find your own subjects this week.
Thanks to Jean and Sam, Kay, Barbara, Catherine, Ann A., Steve, Connie, and Ingrid for commenting on last week's blog!
until next Monday,
a passion for the image©
