I like the comment on Flickr, where I originally posted this photo a few months back: “Yep…seven. I checked.”
Let’s hear it for literalism, an often overlooked and powerful way of thinking that goes against the prevailing tide of metaphoric mysticism that tends to inform art and photography!
I photographed the seven peaches on my garage floor using natural light with a white board to bounce some extra light into the peaches using my Sigma 50mm f/2.8 macro lens at 1/20 of a second and f/11, ISO 100, tripod mounted. For once, there’s very little post-processing here.
