What to choose?
This week The participants in Sally Russick's Focus on life photography project received this prompt: In Season. Since it is summer in the northeastern U.S., there is a lot of produce in season. Also random things like butterflies, thunderstorms, and street fairs.
I chose to focus on some berries growing down the road from my house. Someone obviously planted them, but nobody ever picks them! I have vowed to do just that, but the birds always beat me to it.
These are the elderberries right after a huge storm that would have knocked them off their stems had it had struck a few days later!
A view of the storm waters!
I spent a good part of the next weekend trying to do justice to the juicy reddish purple of the berries.
I've been trying to do a sketch every day or so, I figure I can't miss improving my technique with practice. And it's so easy, now that so many things are "In Season!"
