Sometimes…


 

Circle game.

Sometimes… a you feel like a nut. Sometimes you don’t.

That little saying comes from an old advertisement for Planters Peanuts. It’s the same thing for me. I’m mostly photographing junk or found objects or something I brewed like yesterday’s coffee picture. That doesn’t mean I stopped making pictures of what I see.

This picture is a case in point.

How could I not stop and make a picture of brand new purple buds? I made a few pictures in the usual way with the buds in sharp focus and the stems slightly out of focus. Then I stuck the lens into the plant. I wasn’t sure what I had until I started culling and playing. The actual file was fairly light because the phone was trying to compensate for being in deep shadow. The minute I darkened the entire file, everything started popping. The colors were amazing. A few minutes of further tinkering and I was done.

That’s the picture. A coffee blog started following Storyteller yesterday. I suppose it was based onthe coffee cup picture. I hope I didn’t disappoint this guy because how often do I post about coffee?  Maybe I should start posting about coffee. With all NOLA’s indy shops I could have a year-long project.

  1. Maybe add a beignet or two to your coffee posts to sweeten the deal! I can still smell and remember the taste from a little spot in the French Quarter. It was touristy…but I was a tourist. 🙂 I’ve had them since, but eaten in California it’s just a doughnut.

    • Heh! It just a donut here. I take first time visitors to Cafe du Monde for their first real stop in the city. It’s a good place to start. I never go there — or hardly to the Quarter — unless I have to.
