One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2015—Farm To Fork

Sacramento has reinvented itself as the “Farm to Fork” capital of the United States and, perhaps, the world. Fresh local food is available in this region 365 days a year. No major city in America is more centrally located amid such a vast agricultural area of high-quality farms, ranches and vineyards. Our Mediterranean climate produces some of the nation’s most diverse and high-quality crops and those crops are featured on the menus of local restaurants, in our local supermarkets, and sold at Farmer’s Markets all year.

When my personal trainer, Noelle, brought me ten beautiful brown eggs, laid by the hens she raises, I knew I had to take some photos of them. When I looked on-line for ideas for egg photos, something I don’t usually do, I saw a photograph of an egg perched atop a pair of interlocking forks. I knew I had to try to duplicate that shot. It amused me to literally depict “farm to fork” in a photograph. And, it gave me a chance to practice flash settings and use my shoot through umbrella.
