Phoneography Challenge ~ Macro In The Kitchen


Working in the kitchen preparing meals is usually a cascade of colors, in addition to the flavors and aromas coming forth. I paused only briefly to convert this sliced head of red cabbage in to monochrome. It seems to work, in my eyes, to bring out the detail of the convolutions of the packed leaves. It is amazing to me to think of how a cabbage grows and comes together like this, all tight in a ball.

      Thanks, Carol. I cut the top half of the cabbage off as I prepared to make a bowl out of the bottom half, to serve dip in it for Easter (something I saw on a cooking show). Creativity was running rampant that morning!

    I love this shot! Very clever, Angeline. πŸ™‚


  11. You know I love kitchen photos, so I very much enjoyed this. The black and white makes it appear to be a drawing, rather than a photo.

  13. Angeline, I knew immediately what you had taken. Red cabbage works so well as an up close subject. Additionally, your conversion gives the whimsical design a stage. Happy Photo Challenge.
