Maple Shade, New Jersey - February 17, 2010 and St. Davids, Pennsylvania - February 17, 2008

I was searching my archives for photographs I took on this date, February 17. I came across these taken two years apart and couldn’t decide which to showcase today. The thought occurred to me that they might look interesting as a composition. I know it’s very unusual, but I found it interesting. Sometimes you have to venture out of your comfort zone and have a little fun…

If your interested, here is a version with three images shot on the same date. This one is really “off the wall.”

Also, here is the story on the pepper photograph:

We were at the produce market and I spotted this pepper and decided to shoot it on the spot. Laid it on the sacks of peanuts and shot it. Added a little softening glow in Photoshop, and here it is. I thought it was fun and wanted to share it. All comments appreciated…
