STILL LIFE 25 – TOMATOES FROM TESCO (MONO)
August 22, 2015 7 Comments
Part of a sextet cosily snuggled down in a Tesco plastic tray that is happily lost in the shadows.
Apart from the one in the middle, they are reduced to uncertain, rounded forms (rather like me in a way … on a good day…) that bask in the soft light of a large window with net curtains. I’ve used mono photography, and also the heavy blue tone, to distance them from what they actually are – to make them appear just a series of shapes.
They could be small, steep, rounded hills, and they remind me of the Eastern Red Hills on Skye, below which, long ago, I lived in the village of Torrin.

D800 with 105mm Nikkor; 100 ISO; tripod; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Film Noir 1 preset and adding a heavy cyanotype tone.
