Avocado Seed

Getting back to some things I really like; a simple object, available light and nothing else.  A few days ago I was cutting up an avocado and looked at the seed.  Avocado seeds are beautiful.  They have a rich color, great shape, and interesting skin.  I set it aside for photos.

After dinner I washed the seed again and rubbed a tiny bit of olive oil on it to keep the skin as it was when I first saw it.  It does dry out quickly.  The seed sat on the kitchen counter and I shot it.  So far this is my favorite shot of it.  I have it in black and white as well (below).  I cannot decide which I like better.
