I liked the texture and light of the fruits against a gray winter background. I believe the fruit and vegetables have an interesting character of their own when they are exposed outside of the standard peripherals of a kitchen environment.
Again, it is all about light and how the light paints each subject. The more I see and realize the quality of light, the more anxious I am to find it where ever it appears. These images are all late in the afternoon or early in the morning when the quality of outdoor light is at its best.
