Phoneography Challenge: Macro (in The Kitchen)


The fundamentals of cooking in our kitchen include a lot of garlic. As I placed a bulb of Allium Sativum back into the molcajete (a Mexican mortar and pestle) where I keep it by the stove, I saw another side of its beauty. The papery skin torn in layers around the root cluster begged for a photo, as did the other side


Nothing in this house escapes a phoneography opportunity. Thanks to Lens and Pens by Sally for today’s challenge.

  6. Oh garlic! We have a love and hate relationship! LOL #1’s juxtaposition of light and dark and the different textures is interesting. 🙂

      Thank you! I think I get your drift on the love/hate relationship with garlic 🙂
      I don’t know why, but our garlic use has increased in the last year or so…I’m glad both my husband and I like it.

    I like the second one as well. The surface of the cloves looks satiny… the color treatment really works well.

    Cool idea for the macro 🙂 I’ve never though about using food in the kitchen.
