Food photography can be fun. Sometimes I shoot food for recipe posts, but today’s photo was serendipitous, the result of a quirky arrangement of onions that I’d just chopped. I didn’t pose them, but found their form and symmetry visually appealing. Beauty in the mundane.

Later I printed and framed this photo in a grouping of three along with garlic and eggs; it hangs in our kitchen. I like to create art for our home. Everything shouldn’t come from T.J. Maxx!
