This is how it goes, from the garden to the dark room : Step 1: butternut pumpkins grow in the garden. step 2 : The ripe ones are stored in the kitchen. Claire put them there waiting to be cooked, not in a messy way. As I'm having my morning tea, I can't help noticing that it looks rather beautiful, grab the camera... It can also look like this ( no styling of any kind, the truth, nothing but the truth ) : Lets get to work. Colour or black & white ? Black & white... Closer or larger ? In the end, there are two options : a larger version showing some of the background and a closer version, somehow more graphic. This slight change of frame makes a world of difference. You must click on the photo for a better look.

Very beautiful interiors and photos. I have posted too about gardening because of a new born beauty but my photos don't compare to yours.

I am visiting you're beautiful blog after reading the interview on Little Augury. I love these images The colour image is arresting but then oh the black and white ....the light and then the last !!! I love the series and how you show us the different frames, the final image has an ambiguity to it they look almost like stone or carved marble?
