pics : vegetable garden {1}



i am not a huge fan of vegetables. as a kid, i did the sit at the table until you finish your peas thing. i should still be sitting there. i like corn, carrots, zucchini, creamed spinach, maybe some snap peas or roasted vegetables with lots of garlic & olive oil. i am a fan of photographing them, though. these pics were taken this weekend at the new york botanical garden's edible garden. i should have another photo of lidia bastianich's cooking demonstration, but i had some technical difficulties. my mom adored her. she makes good vegetables.

these photos aren't just vegetables, but they are colorful. next post will be mostly green. enjoy your week!

xo, cindy

My faves are the first and last. I'm a huge fan of macro and/or fine detail.

Love the water bead on the first picture :) I love my veggies I must say, I was the opposite as a kid, because that is all I ever wanted to eat! I would trade spinach for a baked good on my lunch tray, I know weird huh?!
I love drawing vegetables and fruit as well as photographing them.

Hey Cindy! I'm finally catching up on my fave blogs and I am once again loving your photos :) Love the composition of the first one - so pretty - and I just have to ask what the 5th one down is! Love the colors but have no idea... an eggplant? Perhaps I need some veggie help myself ;)

Love,
Megan xoxo
