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.
