Project 'Inside' 5 - red pepper


A dull and rainy day was best spent making one of my infrequent trips to the supermarket to stock up, working through that pile of ironing that's been waiting for me  - and then, in the afternoon, practising with my macro lens some more. I retrieved a red pepper from the fridge, before it started looking too shrivelled to be nice. There's something about the red and green combo that is pleasing and attention-grabbing. These were just lit by the light through the skylight in my attic. On a cloudy day it gives a nice even spread, ideal for photography.

  1. Exactly as yours above, "REAL" supermarket here in Hameln offer fresh red paprika in a transparent tube of 3 for EUR 1,30. As sadly my wife Ruth can barely walk nowadays I do all the shopping alone. Jonagored apples, tomatoes, bananas, asparagus, cheese, mushrooms, kobaljau fish all the way from Alaska. I often think of the logistics necessary to set all these things before me and reflect,my goodness, aren't we spoiled?

  2. It makes a great subject for a photograph. If you find yourself desperately searching for ingredients in your kitchen, don't forget to have a look in the attic!

  4. I wish I had a skylight, since photos inside always have spots of the light source reflected on the subjects (mine are pottery.) These pepper shots are fantastic.

  5. Very striking shots, Jenny, and only shows that one doesn't have to go further than home to find good "subjects." I thought back to the famous pepper shots of Edward Weston which were in B&W and I preferred these color ones.
