CHLOROGATUMS

©All images Andy deBruyn

My neighbor has this huge potted plant. It sits right between our houses. They don't seem to water it or care for it much. It's pushed off to my side of the side yard.
But two weeks ago we had those heavy rains and this morning about 6 stems flowered. It was a bit windy so the focus is neither here nor there but the shape and form is...


My research tells me they're part of the "soap plant" family or chlorogatum pomeridianum...plants with soapy leaves.

A LITTLE POTATO LOVE

©Andy deBruyn

Documenting my breakfast. Pototoes, tomatoes, onions, peas, and a cup of strong coffee. Yup.

Lit with an Arri Pepper 150watt fitted with a 1 inch snoot with camera set to 6100 Kelvin which gave me that tungsten light on daylight film look.

CHERRY VANILLA BLUEBERRY

I wanted to make another food image for my Food and Drink page. I decided on something for breakfast. Make it colorful I thought.

Went to the local super in their bulk section and bought some Vanilla Cherry Granola. I had some blueberries in the fridge.

Lighting is window light with V configuration of reflectors on the right and a small light pointing right at the top.

NOT SO TASTY

While mowing the yard this morning I came upon this tasty morsel...or not so tasty. You can't tell here but it was the size of a portabello. Didn't have an "Eat Me" sign on it so I decided to let it be.

Looks kinda like those things that change color and shape that you find in the ocean.
