Wordless Wednesday - You say tomato...


Juicy fruit
Delray Beach, Florida, December 2007 [Click to embiggen]


This is the final photo in support of this week's Thematic Photographic theme, bright. Between the color, texture and composition, I think this may be one of the brightest photos in my archives, and one of my favorites. I hope you like it, too. (And, no, it's not too late to go back in time and share your own brightly-themed image. Click here to get involved.)

Your turn: The ability of a brightly-shot photo to change one's mood. Please discuss.

One more thing: I'll be posting the first entry in support of NEXT week's Thematic Photographic theme on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. Eastern. Next week's theme will be "quiet", and I hope you can take some quiet time between now and then to think about how you'd like to interpret it.

Indeed, I do say tomato! I say they are Nature's candy! My absolute favorite fruit (don't argue with me... it's a fruit!). Lovely, lovely, photo, Carmi... but aren't they a bit out of season? Is this from the archives? Oh, just read the caption. Still... December 2007 is still December. Florida is a magical place. I want to go to there.

Happy WW, everybody!

I was just thinking about what I wanted for lunch and then I opened up your post!!! Now all I want is tomatoes, but there aren't any in town!!!

Mojo said...

Now those look like I could pluck 'em right off the screen slice 'em nice and thick with some crisp bacon and lettuce on wheat toast.

But right now, I'm watching Les Boys give my Canes a power play drill. Guy Carbonneau has to be nursing an ulcer right now. Penalties are 11-0 through two periods and there's 30 seconds of a 5-on-3 carrying over to the third.

Weird game.

Love the tomatoes! YUM. Makes me miss summer fruit. :-)

I worked at a convention at Delray Beach a few years ago. I had such a nice time there. Lovely spot.

MorahMommy said...

What a yummy photo. It makes me think of hot, hazy summer days.

Awareness said...

Tomatoes....love them. Great take on the theme too Carmi. I have a whole bunch of produce photos from the market this summer. I never thought to post them.

quiet, eh? good one. It is stirring up many ideas.

bright and beautiful!

Kaknu said...

I think you made smarmoofus' day. When she says she loves tomatoes, that doesn't explain it well enough. I've seen her eat a whole bowl of tomatoes for a snack. I can't remember what kind. They weren't cherry though.

Great bright shot. ;-)

Black on Campus said...

Lovely photo. Those tomatoes look more like art than food, and I like that about this photo.

CK-II said...

I like tomatoes! Yummy! Happy WW! :)

Rizza said...

great picture! the smoothness and the color of the tomatoes are really captured on this one.

Happy WW!

Gabriel said...

Funny that you used tomatoes, at least for me. My wife made a big a** lasagna for everybody tonight, but I had to cook a different dinner for me, because she forgot tomatoes give me heartburn (no, seriously)...

My post is here. Have a great day!

Red Lotus Mama said...

Great color. I am breaking out in hives just looking at the photo!

Pinky said...

I did a lot of catching up, Carmi. The tomatoes are lovely and I hope they're home grown! Those are the best. I have a bright photo up right now, in fact.

DNLee said...

Hey there. Happy WW. I couldn't find a theme photo I was happy with this week.

I'll try for next week.

Now that is a beautiful tomato. Looks delicious.

I have come to you blogs from Indrani's blogs.

I have read some of your posts. I would be visiting here, as I have your writing is interesting.

If you like short stories and paintings, then a short visit to my blogs would be a refreshing one.

Tomatoes are a spectacular red, arent they? And you've captured the magic of that red in this photo.

My new photo blog has a very bright photo I took as its header. Sometimes when I go to it, I just sit back a bit and say "wow"! It gives both a jolt and happy memories of a very bright sunny day in Nova Scotia this summer. One of the nicest, most relaxing vacations of my life.

Nice work, Carmi!

Peace.

Jared said...

WOW! Definitely bright! :D Not a tomato fan, but your pic almost convinced me to try one. :D

YellowRose said...

Angela Klocke said...

Makes you think of summer!

The tomatoes look yummy! Awesome pics!

Bob-kat said...

Colour has been proven to affect mood and this shot is bursting with brightness :)

I needed that to lift my spirits. Too many hospital visits lately and I know you can empathise with that.

Gorgeous color!

If I were playing, I would interpret Quiet with kids napping.

Vodka Mom said...

I love this shot, and immediately thought of the yummy tomatoes fresh out of our garden this summer! There is NOTHING like it.

jill said...

girl1 has informed me that ALL future gingerbread cookies will be decorated in the same outfit....gotta love her!

Betty said...

Glad you enjoyed my photo for today. Your picture of the tomatoes looks good enough to eat. I wish our tomatoes we try to raise each year would turn out this good.
