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.
