renewal – seeds

spaghetti squash scraps and seeds

I love taking photographs of my kitchen sink. It’s like a meditation exercise – it focuses my eyes on tiny details I might normally miss. It helps me find beauty in unexpected places.

One of the things I love about photographing food scraps is noticing the amazing natural variations in plant seeds and reproduction. These spaghetti squash seeds (above) glisten with slippery dampness. The apple (below) hides its small, dark seeds chastely, inside a dry star.

I appreciate fruit and vegetable seeds.
