There’s a lull in testing while I wait for the Zx cameras to be delivered, and I’ve been making use of the break to do some real photography. As some of you know, I’m starting a series of images of what comes out of our (really, my wife’s) garden. The name of the series is Spots on My Apples, from the Joni Mitchell song that starts out, “They paved paradise, put up a parking lot.”, and has the following near the end:
Hey, farmer, farmer, put away your DDT
Give me spots on my apples, but leave me the birds and the bees.
This is a series of portraits of produce, not prettified or perfect like you’d see in the aisles at Safeway, but treated with respect. At least that’s my goal.
