Summer Remnant

October 17, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Our tomato plants didn’t have a very good summer.  Most of the tomatoes went bad before they fully ripened on the vine.  But they’re still trying to produce a few more for the table, despite the shorter, cooler days of fall.

This photo wasn’t meant for the blog.  I was just trying to take a few sample photos with a lens I’d like to sell, because it hasn’t been used for years. The intent was to walk around the yard just before sunset, looking for examples that would show the lens’ abilities as far as sharpness, color, bokeh and control of chromatic aberration.

I’m not sure why I like the image.  After all, it’s just a tomato, and there’s nothing creative about the composition.  Maybe it’s because it reminds me of summer, and I wish it would last a little longer.  Maybe it’s because I see humor in what appears to be a zipper on its skin.  Anyway, like most of this year’s crop, the other side of this one was rotten.  At least it made me smile.
