Farmers Magic Crop

Posted by Shayla Simmons — 20 Aug 2013

During the summer, visiting your local farmer's market or community co-op is a great way to enjoy your town's spirit but also a great time to find exceptional fresh produce.  Did you also know it's a great time to capture amazingly vibrant colors, smiling faces, cherubic children and natural good cheer?

Vegetables are high in vitamins, minerals, and fiber; which are an A+ staple for your body.  But besides tasting incredible and being nutritious, these veggies are particularly fun to photograph!   If a vegetable can be 'famous', perhaps one of the most such well known is a green pepper photographed by Edward Weston. The green pepper #30 in black and white shows that even vegetables can be sleek and curvaceous.

We have our own virtual veggie smorgasbord right here on JPG! Browsing through this digital farmer's market, one can find exquisite inspiration and sublime virtual nutrition!
