Growing local

Not my vegetables, but a photo of which I'm proud

Alas, I didn't grow these, but I took the photo on film (4x5 large format) and what you see is the result of my first effort to develop film at home. I'm very happy with the result.

My first home-developed photo

That's my favourite knife and some of my favourite ingredients for my favourite French recipes. It was taken today on my back patio with the overcast/rainy weather providing nice light. It's not the world's best still life setup, but I was concentrating on literally dozens of technical details to make the shot work for the developing I had planned... next time I'll do a prettier one! :-)

Excellent! Thanks Elaine and Lissa :-) I'm particularly happy with it because they are my favourite vegies (the base of many French recipes) and that's my favourite knife, and because it was my first go at developing by hand at home, and it's my first really good photo from my large format camera. Now if I had some of my own onions, garlic, carrots and celery to harvest... hmmm... hehehehe... I don't think my cress and mustard would make much of a photo!

Elaine had access to it somehow and shared with me. You can still add it to the main body of your message by saving. Beautiful pic Daniel :)
