Still Life With Scraps

07 Mar

Call me odd, but it’s compositions like this that first inspired me to start photographing food meant for the compost pile.


Look at all those colors!  And textures!  Can’t you taste the cool, juicy orange segments and the creamy soft banana?  The sweet syrupy strawberries?  And the brilliant beets … wait, they don’t match right?  It reminds me of the old Sesame Street song, “one of these things doesn’t belong here, one of these things is not the same…” song.  But the beets are just as sweet as all the fruits if you roast them in their skins or if you bake them into Almond Beet cookies, which I did for a soccer dessert tailgate.  Love spring, love soccer, love cookies, love life.
