The measure of a man is what he does with power.
Pittacus or Plato or some copywriter from the 1950s. Depends on who you ask.
The last two days have seen almost three inches of snow where I live. It’s always fun to experience the full spectrum of seasonal events throughout a year. Snow is the one that brings about the fondest memories. Just as long as it doesn’t continue for too long. I don’t need to remember that much!
Yesterday I posted an image of the bottom of a glass jug being backlit and giving off a green hue. I captured a few other images of the jug and thought this one was cool enough to share. I like how the manufacturer’s marks come up from the bottom clearly while the imperfections in the glass cause a wavy effect toward the top of the photo.
A few days ago I posted a picture of a Romanesco. This is the same one from a different perspective and in monochrome rather than in color.
At first I wasn’t sure I liked the monochrome. The color of the Romanesco is beautiful and adds a lot to its interest. However, black and white photography has always interested me and I like the way the light and shadows here play on the photo.
About a week ago I was at the grocery store when I noticed this beautiful thing nestled between the lettuce and broccoli. I had heard of Romanesco before but had never seen one.
I came back a few days later and bought one. I plan on eating it but my main purpose for buying it was to photograph it. This edible flower bud has an amazing fractal-like appearance and is quite striking to look at.
I’ve actually been in the habit of photographing vegetables for some time although I haven’t been posting them here. Perhaps in the future I will. It’s fun to share amazing natural art work.
