Day 38—Negative Mango

For the past couple of days, I have had a mental block of some sort and cannot find an inspiration for photos. Today’s challenge is “starts with ‘m'” but once again, the inspiration wasn’t there. When I went to the grocery store late this afternoon I noticed a pile of mangos and bought one.

This week’s theme in my other Flickr group, Recording Images, is “negative space” so I thought I’d try it with my mango. I found it is not an easy task to create negative space. What I am discovering lately is that I am trying too hard to achieve a result and my photos are suffering. Today’s photo is a bit contrived, not to mention conventional, but I’m done for the day and ready to pour a glass of my old vine Zin.
