Au Naturel: Red Currents

Red Currents Black Bowl (06) by MeetaK


I was planning on selecting another photo. I really like Crimson Beetroot and fits perfectly into this month's theme. I am talking about the monthly photography event CLICK. Jai & Bee are calling the theme this month Au Naturel, I call the series of these photos RAW.

My calendar this year displays a selection of photos I took throughout 2007 in their purest form - RAW ... or Au Naturel.

I decided to go against Crimson Beetroot. As April progressed I started getting several mails from many of you who have my calendar hanging on your walls. Not only was I touched by your compliments but the mails helped me make another decision.

I have the same calendar here at home and a few of my closest friends and family have also received it as presents, so April's photo was popping down at me in all its glory everywhere I went.

You guessed it! April's photo is "red currents in a black bowl" you see above. I like the bright red and the way the berries pop right out of the shot. All in all the shot is perfect for this months theme.

  1. we'd originally planned to call it 'raw', but didn't want it to turn up searches for x-rated pics. lol. i love this entry. gorgeous and so vibrant.

  2. Gorgeous pic, Meeta. Have you considered setting up an Etsy account to sell some of your gorgeous photos/calendars/cards? I love that site and it has become my favorite source for handmade gifts, and thought of that when I saw the lovely calendar you have made.

  3. Beautiful! currents always bring me back to when I was picking them, stepped on a slug and then we made really excellent jam out of the currents (not the slug)! delicious!

  4. your photos are amazing and such an inspiration. I love your blog! :)

  5. Fresh currants are one of the things I seldom get here. They make any pic cheery. Love the textures in the shot.

  6. Love the photo - the contrast between the grey and the red is fabulous!

  7. Beautiful and nice click for the event:)

  8. Those red currents look too good to be true. It's as if they have a real current passing through them:)

    P.S You are invited to celebrate the Sandwich Festival at my blog
