Veggie Tales in Old Town

The colors of the Farmers’ Market are extraordinary. The summer veggies and the flowers are rich with colors that demand your highest attention. These two were taken at ISO1600, f/7.1 to get the depth of field that I wanted. The eggplant was taken at 122m with1/1000. The sunflower with a 300mm, also at 1/1000. What drew me to the sunflower was that curvy line at the edge of the flower petals that falls off into the land of “no focus.”  I am sure that the color on the eggplant is natural–not so sure on the sunflower but I am thinking that it’s not. Next time I will ask. Or maybe buy one and watch to see if the water changes colors.  All the wonderful veggies there make me want to overbuy and cook many things but most of the time I hold back and just buy one thing. And because they are veggies, no child of mine will have them.

There are so many sunflower hybrids now that they could be natural. On the other hand, you’re right & a day in some water with red food coloring will make strange things. Pretty anyway!
