Three Onions

By In Articles, Photographs
I’m always on the look out for props – cheap bowls, napkins, cutlery and the like. My attention has shifted recently to routing around in skips and dump bins for ‘backgrounds’. I found a lovely piece of cracked marble the other day but it was so damn heavy I couldn’t possibly have carried it home.

What I did discover, withering away behind my fathers greenhouses (yep, plural, he grows orchids) last weekend, was this piece of board resplendent with peeling paint. It certainly implies a ‘something’ in photos such as this onion one; not quite sure what though!

    What an excellent and original idea! Could it be that there are ideas in the pipeline for more of these wonderful photos along the same concept?
    P.s. I love the spam blocking software you’ve got there, very quaint

    As luck would have it Trig, I have turned the board over and plonked a wine bottle on it for a photo to use on Spittoon…

    Wow, what a great photo. This is an artistical composition. I love it.

    I have often wondered this…thought that maybe people just had this many different interesting counter tops in their homes. Now I know the secret.
    This is a great find and of course, a brilliant photo!
