You are always told to not play with your food, but where is the fun in that? With that in mind, can you guess what the above photo is of? You won’t find out in this post. To me it looks like it could be a minuature tree reaching towards the sky.

Unlike my other photos this one was taken with my phone and edited in snapseed. Once you have a vision and the tools to create that vision, it doesn’t matter how well those tools are as long as they get the job done. It would have been nice to use the DSLR but I didn’t have access to it at the time. LR would have been nice to use but I didn’t feel like going through with the amount of time it would have taken with transferring the photo over and doing the processing. Plus I was happy with the results I got anyways.

I wish I could say that there are more photos coming soon. Instead I’ll say that I have no idea when I’ll be able to process more or even get the camera out again. I’m still working crazy hours, a couple weeks with 70, and on top of that in the process of selling and buying a house. Add trying to keep up with three kids and that leaves me with very little sleep each night and no time to even think about photography. I’ve got David DuChemin’s newest book and some other photography materials but no time to go through them. I think about how much I wish I could and still I wait until I have the time. Patience is something I’ve learned to live with.

I’m hoping this busy life will slow down soon so I can get back to what I enjoy. Until then have fun guessing at what I have presented you with.

  1. I think it’s the stem to a winter squash of some sort. It could be a pumpkin, which is in the same family. Unlikely to be a watermelon – their dried up stems tend to be smaller.

    It’s hard to feed our creativity. There are always so many demands on our time. Keep trying to fit it in though – it’s not good to let it drift off either.



  2. Hmmm. What goes with an apple? Cheese, but you’ve already ruled that out. Plus I know of no cheese that looks quite like this.A pear? Oh who cares. I don’t want to play! But if I’m correct, please send my prize anyway!


    • You’ve got to think another fruit that goes with apples. To me it makes sense. I’ll be posting the answer this week so I guess if you can’t figure it out until then, you’ll just have to wait. And the prize? Self satisfaction that you got it right. πŸ™‚

      I’m wondering though, if I were to post macro shots of random things that are common if many people would play along. It would be fun, but then again it’d be something else I wouldn’t have time to keep up with right now.
