Creepy alien fingers

Today's piece is a photo of creepy... I mean cranberry beans. 🙂

Day 211: Cranberry Beans

Real photographers do something called “macro photography”, where they take really interesting photos of tiny objects, often with neato lighting. I, on the other hand, being a painter first and foremost, enjoy photography but have no formal skills. I don’t even know how to delete a picture on my camera most of the time. 

Today I thought I’d try to get a cool image from this pile of cranberry beans I picked up at Whole Foods the other day. Up close, they kind of look like creepy alien fingers… jam-packed with nutrients. I am now off to attempt to cook them (cooking is also one of my non-skills that I engage in regularly). Wish me luck!
