Regular Random: five minutes with fresh walnuts

Photo 2-04-19, 2 12 42 PM

Perhaps I just never noticed before, but bags of fresh New Zealand walnuts seem only to have arrived on the shelves of local grocers in the last couple of years. Maybe it’s a newish commercial venture here — and maybe I’m just not that observant.

Either way, I’m enjoying them now.

Regular Random is a photo challenge hosted by Desley Jane at Musings of a Frequently Flying Scientist. Please pop over and take a look;  and if you’d like to join in:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to Desley’s post.

  1. I bought 2.5kg last spring (2018) on a local market in France. They were absolutely awful…. now I buy them again, as I did before, either by bags of one kilo or shelled and packed in bags. But there IS a special joy in breaking them open and taste the bitter, spittle pulling but oh so delicious skin over fresh walnuts!
    Lovely pics too.

  2. These are such delightful soft focus photos Su. And you must have a very good nutcracker! Whenever we have walnuts in their shells they always end up in bits! Or maybe NZ walnuts are different to what we get.
