Martha's A-Z Photo Challenge: "G" Is For Garlic

"What garlic is to food, insanity is to art."

-Augustus Saint-Gaudens

Time for the letter "G" in Martha's A-Z- Challenge! I have always wanted to photograph a bulb of garlic on it's own, I find them very photogenic, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity! I had a good time playing with lighting and shadows, and I even considered photographing the bulb of garlic in black and white, but in the end I thought the color mode gave the photo a more realistic and softer touch. Tonight it will used in Spaghetti ALA Carly! :)

If you would like to play along with the A-Z challenge, just drop by Martha's journal on AOL for all the details!

When I saw the title, I was wondering if you did something with the Gilroy Garlic Festival. Nope. :-) What you did is very good and I think your right color is better for this than black and white would've been. Spaghetti huh? What time did you say dinner would be? ;-) BTW - the photo was tastfully done. ;-)
