Lovely. I like this a lot. I'm surprised you shot it in color, but I think it was a good thing to do.

Thank you very much.

As for shooting it in color. I shot it in black-and-white first. Here's the order of things. I took several pictures of the pear in color because the pear was a great color. When I got this angle on the pear, I thought, "Oh, that would be a good B&W picture." So I got out a camera loaded with B&W film and shot it. Then I remembered a conversation I had had with Jae. I was saying that I could sometimes see what would make a good B&W picture, but I was lousy at seeing color pictures. When I asked her what made good color pictures, she said that a strong picture should look good either color or B&W. So I got the camera with color film back out and took the picture again.
