Regular random: five minutes with a bowl of mandarins

I so enjoyed photographing the first mandarins of our crop that I thought I’d use the next harvest for my Five Minutes of Random post.

The bowl is one of my bargain purchases from the Asia Gallery and Vintage Fabric Emporium. I love the way the design echoes the colour and shape of a peeled mandarin.

And in keeping with the still-life theme, I couldn’t resist re-editing the shots in Stackables to add an “old-painting” effect.

Regular Random: five minutes with the first figs of the harvest

I got back from my road-trip to find some our figs had ripened.

Lucky for me this was only a five-minute shoot — figs for breakfast.

With all that’s happening in the world, and in my own life, it was nice to take a little time this morning to think, write, watch the wind blow debris all over the lawn — and enjoy breakfast.
