Day 157—In The Ground

Today’s theme is “ground” and all sorts of thoughts went through my head: ground pepper; peanut butter; coffee grounds; dirt. Dirt won out and I photographed one of my newly planted tomatoes, a hybrid called Juliet, a cross between a grape tomato and a Roma tomato, which is “in the ground” at last. I’m not certain that potting soil in a large pot qualifies as “ground” but I’m going with it!

Clouds intermittently obscured the sun while I tried to photograph creating vastly different looks from auto white balance; I used manual mode and tried once again to keep an eye on the meter. I finally switched to sunny white balance and the sun stayed out for a couple of shots that resulted in more pleasing colors.
