After battling poor soil, and every creature this side of the Mississippi, we have tomatoes! Ok…. two tomatoes! We have success with what the critters don't like to eat – peppers, chives, squash of all kinds. But for some reason, we can not get a tomato inside before someone snacks on it. Apparently tomatoes in our yard are the equivalent to chocolate cake – gone in a jiffy! I picked these a little early before they disappeared. They'll finish ripening up in the window sill for a day or two.
Here they are! I like photographing fruits and vegetables on a white surface. It keeps the focus on the subject and really shows the shadows, highlights, and details. These guys are now on my very long list of painting ideas.
