Red Russian kale
"Eat more kale" say nuritionists. That's quite easy for us, since kale grows readily in my little vegetable patch. So much so, that's hard for us to keep up with it. Fortunately, our local food bank accepts donations of fresh vegetables from gardens, so I can bring a bagful there. And recently, I found a use for the blossoms, but that is a story for another day.
I noticed that rain droplets make pretty patterns on the textured leaves of my Red Russian kale and yesterday I was able to capture an image that satisfies my aesthetic sense.
The photo above is my contribution to edition #34 of Black and White Wednesday - A Culinary Photography Event created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook and hosted this week by Sra of When My Soup Came Alive.
The photo was shot in color and then converted to black and white.
