Ah Shucks, Ma’am….

A silly photo for this first Saturday of December. (:

I took this image back in September, when I was at the well-known Santa Fe Farmer’s Market. I was looking for photos of shapes to take with my macro lens, and I found a mound of chiles (that’s how we spell it here) in a bushel basket.

I looked through my viewfinder, trying to find interesting shapes and compositions, and saw this intriguing chile. I composed an image which to me looks like he’s blushing over something the other chile said. “Ah shucks, ma’am….”

Hope there is some silliness to your weekend. (:

Taken with my 105 mm macro lens at f/4.0.

  31. I like that you’ve found the strange and made it the focus – and funny 🙂
    As an aside, I also have a macro lens (the Canon 100mm f/2.8) and absolutely love it, even for non-macro things. It’s so sharp and produces the most glorious bokeh. It seems you’re very fond of yours too.

  32. Great picture Kate, definitely one that I would have missed. Really funny. 🙂
