Summer is over and the camera club is meeting again.  

The first competition was held on Friday September 21st.  The assigned category was "Fruits and Vegetables".  I submitted a white berry photo ( see Possible Entries ) my sister calls “Marshmallow Plant” and this um....offering.

 Since the category “Fruits and Vegetables” was supposed to be last year but got cancelled because of snow, I had some time to play with this.

I had just gotten my new macro lens (a Canon MP-E 65mm, 1:2.8, 1-5X), I went to the grocery store and looked for fruits with interesting textures.  The background is a banana slice, the "fire" is of course the insides of an orange, grapes for the "fire stones", and berries for the substrate.

 The "logs" are a yaro root that was happily rotten inside and finally the "coals" are some red berries.

 The judge said that this one “scared him” but apparently he liked it enough to award it first place.

I did not think about this when I took this photo but Rowdy and I are reflected in each bubble.  Neat huh?
