we’ve always got kiwi
this food series has been a blast and it’s not over yet, but much of the, ahem, low hanging fruit has already been plucked. for the last several days, steve and i have had to work harder to get compositions and images we were happy with. just in case, we have kept a small collection of kiwis set aside, saying to ourselves, “if we need a plan b someday, we always have kiwis.” they are bright and interestingly structured and easy to slice, and you see them all over the internet. today was the day we needed a plan b. and . . . you guessed it . . . we worked endlessly. everybody in the household was recruited to try their hands at composition. we tried organic and geometric designs. we tried slicing them thin and thick. we tried overlapping and setting them beside each other. starting tomorrow, we no longer have kiwi as a backup plan. thank god.
