One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2017—From A Sow’s Ear

As I husked tomatillos for chile verde, it struck me that the discarded husks were really quite lovely and quite photo-worthy.  I decided a high key treatment would look better than my generally preferred black background.  Although they are from somewhat homely beginnings, these tomatillo husks have a floral appearance and seem almost orchid-like…as from a sow’s ear a silk purse, whence from a humble husk, an orchid.

    A lovely shot! My photo teacher always says there’s magic in threes, which this shot clearly demonstrates. Well done- and a nice departure from birds!
