For many of us it’s Harvest time, lots of photo opportunities …. fields, berries, produce in general.
For others any food shots, or still life or macro.

Fantastic. Fire fighters and hot peppers. A perfect combination.
- October 8, 2019 at 5:00 am #421320
And you got all of the primary colors Click. Thanks for pointing out the hot connection Dave.
- October 11, 2019 at 9:19 pm #421553
Great spotting Click. Didn’t make the connection either till I read the others posts. Great awareness and a great pic!

Beautiful color Rob!
- October 6, 2019 at 12:54 pm #421178
I agree with Bobbie. Beautiful colors here. And blemish free apples. Every dormant season I tell myself that THIS year I’m going to follow a fungicide spray schedule. And I never do. Our apples always have some spots on them.
- October 8, 2019 at 5:02 am #421321
And they probably taste great Dave. We don’t use anything on our lemon or clementine tree either.
- October 11, 2019 at 9:21 pm #421554
Yum! They look so delicious and healthy. Looks like some pie baking and icecream on the horizon!

Those are some good looking potatoes P71. The splash of green from the beans and broccoli is a nice touch.
- October 7, 2019 at 9:32 am #421234
Thank you Preston , bit of an old photo .. stuck at home with the last few days with flu.
- October 11, 2019 at 9:25 pm #421555
You too? I’m still not back to 100% after my flu three weeks ago. I couldn’t even summon the strength to post comments on LS. Hope you recover soon Pat. As a spud devotee myself this pic is particularly enjoyable. They look like some I bought just yesterday which were Kestrel potatoes with the spots of purple on the skin.
- October 12, 2019 at 8:32 am #421595
Thanks graham , i am feeling much better now 😉 .. these potatoes are just some from my sisters veg plot , i made her 2 fairly big veg beds a couple of years ago and she has had all sorts growing since , if she is not growing stuff she is making Soaps that she sells.
- October 5, 2019 at 5:08 pm #421139
My “harvest” this year was disappointing until I started having a little fun!
- October 5, 2019 at 5:11 pm #421140
- October 11, 2019 at 9:28 pm #421556
Making the most of what you have though Marcia. Nice bokeh.

Love the colour and detail in this Andre.

We’re going to take the harvest home.
- October 6, 2019 at 12:59 pm #421179
Great thinking , love it.
- October 6, 2019 at 7:56 pm #421194
Haha, you might be a bit overweight on that tractor there Andre! Love the concept.
- October 7, 2019 at 10:05 am #421239
You are right. Fortunately, there was no police check!
- October 8, 2019 at 5:05 am #421323
- October 11, 2019 at 9:30 pm #421558
What a fun project this would have been. I would never have thought about using this angle if not for the toys. Great creativity Andre.
- October 6, 2019 at 3:25 am #421163
Looking forward to tasting.
- October 6, 2019 at 1:05 pm #421181
I like this one a lot. Wonderful colors throughout. The image is a great representation of a fall harvest.
We had a giant 60 year old English walnut tree on the farm. Every other year provided an astounding amount of walnuts.
- October 6, 2019 at 10:49 pm #421208
Oh yum! Great fall harvest.
- October 8, 2019 at 5:07 am #421324
I’m jealous. Not only is this a beautiful fall image, but your walnut shells actually have walnuts in them. We have a huge pecan tree but for several years, no pecans, only shells 🙁
- October 8, 2019 at 6:49 am #421329JasenkaGKeymaster
You’ve captured all those beautiful autumn colors here, such a pleasant view 🙂
- October 8, 2019 at 5:15 pm #421347
I have nothing to add – surely would make a wonderful food advertisement, though.
- October 11, 2019 at 9:32 pm #421559
You certainly got some great shots from these walnuts. This last one is a stunner and ticks all the boxes for a food shot. It has wonderful textures and colour and a mouth-watering appeal.
- October 6, 2019 at 1:10 pm #421183
Friends gave us a start of this Gezahnte tomato. It’s an heirloom paste tomato developed in Naples Italy.
- October 6, 2019 at 10:50 pm #421209
They look great, Dave!
- October 7, 2019 at 9:41 am #421236
Thanks Leanne. Flavor was ok but nothing to write home about. Used them in spaghetti sauce and salsa.
- October 11, 2019 at 9:33 pm #421561
I thought they were capsicums at first. Another thing I’ve never seen before! Pity about the taste but they certainly look appealing in your pic Dave.

I’ve eaten more cherry tomatoes this year than I can count.
- October 7, 2019 at 9:44 am #421237
We usually grow two types every year. This last year was the old standbys Sweet 100 and Sun Gold.
- October 9, 2019 at 8:47 am #421410
The Sun Golds are my favorite; such a sweet tomato and low acidity. I don’t have any pictures of them on the vine because I picked them too fast.
- October 10, 2019 at 9:48 am #421458
A cultivar we love but could not find this year is Sun Sugar. Very similar to Sun Gold but maybe even a tad sweeter.
- October 11, 2019 at 8:16 pm #421536
Two years ago I bought a demountable plastic greenhouse, soil & potting mix, cherry tomato seedlings, fertiliser etc…cost me about $250 in total to set up. They grew and grew until eventually baby green tomatoes started appearing. As soon as they started turning pinkish-red, I’d tell the wife I’m picking those tomorrow but when I’d go out the next day, they’d all be gone! Damn rats and/or Possums!
I bought a plastic eagle to hover nearby and scare the rodents away…didn’t work. I bought boxes of camphor (napthalene mothballs) and crushed them and spread it around the plants when a mate told me he does this and it works wonderfully for him…didn’t work. I bought a plastic snake and put it between the plants….didn’t work.
In the end I harvested a grand total of about 12 tomatoes for the entire endeavour but man was I proud! I just buy them now 🙁

One from last year. Apologies for my absence recently but the Man-Flu really knocked me around for the past two weeks. Still recovering.
- October 6, 2019 at 10:51 pm #421211
Lovely looking berries, Graham.
- October 7, 2019 at 9:14 pm #421288
Very nice Graham.
Get well soon mate.
- October 8, 2019 at 5:10 am #421325
Love the berries, great sharp focus.
No apologies needed Graham. Just glad to know you’re on the way to well. Chicken soup for you too!
- October 8, 2019 at 5:18 pm #421348
I wouldn’t recommend eating these berries just yet, Graham! Do hope you are totally recovered soon.
- October 8, 2019 at 9:11 pm #421355
Thanks for the get well wishes everyone. I’m still dealing with the remnants of whatever alien demon flu spore attacked me. So much for the flu shot I had earlier this year! Hopefully I’ll be back to normal soon and I can get the camera back in action. Thanks again.

I love all of the different colours and varieties of tomatoes:
- October 7, 2019 at 9:51 am #421238
Beautiful shot Leanne. Lovely light and color. They look delicious. We always look forward to our first home grown tomato every year. You just can’t match the flavor from one from the store.
- October 8, 2019 at 10:57 pm #421375
Agreed! And something about eating them when they are sun-warmed…mmmmmm!
- October 6, 2019 at 10:56 pm #421214
Carrots – all shapes, colours and sizes:
- October 8, 2019 at 5:11 am #421326
Beautiful rainbow Leanne.
- October 8, 2019 at 10:56 pm #421374
Thanks Bobbie. I used to grow the heritage varieties just for the colours. But they seem to grow much quicker than some of my “orange” carrots so I love them for that now too. (But really, the colours are just cool!)
- October 8, 2019 at 5:19 pm #421349
Leanne, I am so hungry right now and these 2 posts look delicious. Think I’ll pick some of the other food posts, add some firemen and hot peppers and have a feast!
- October 8, 2019 at 10:55 pm #421373
Pat, I had to reread your post twice and I’m still puzzling over what the firemen are for! 😉
- October 9, 2019 at 7:25 am #421403
Sorry, Leanne, I was referring to the post by Click (first post) with the firemen and the hot peppers. My guess is they may have been shopping for items for a firehouse chili cook-off (common here) or something like that – and perhaps they’d share the results w me – I am not a “cook”.
- October 11, 2019 at 9:32 pm #421560
Now I get it! Chili cook-offs are not something we do here. My Dad was a firefighter for 29 years. He does know how to make a few very good dishes. They tend to be good cooks as they take turns making meals for their crew.
- October 11, 2019 at 8:21 pm #421538
What a wonderful array of colours your garden must display Leanne. These pics are just so mouth-watering I can almost taste the delicious flavours.
- October 11, 2019 at 9:34 pm #421562
Thanks Graham! Just threw the last of the tomatoes, peppers, etc. into a salsa today, to can it. We’ll have carrots and potatoes for a bit but that is wrap for the garden this year!
- October 7, 2019 at 12:10 pm #421242
Breakfast on Jeju Island, South Korea.
- October 8, 2019 at 11:09 pm #421381
I am intrigued, Kent! I don’t think of broccoli as a breakfast food. And what are those things that look like bannock? I love trying different foods and when my husband and I travel we always order different dishes so we can share and taste more!
- October 9, 2019 at 10:06 am #421415
I think they were some type of fruit tart.
- October 11, 2019 at 8:26 pm #421540
Broccoli for breakfast, now there’s a thought. I love broccoli (not sure about pairing it with fruit tart though?). This pic certainly has a feeling of ‘the day’s adventures are about to start’. Hope they were great ones Kent!
- October 14, 2019 at 9:04 am #421850

For the longest time I though Brussels Sprouts grew like cabbage until I visited my neighbor’s garden. I love the clarity and sharpness of the dew.
- October 10, 2019 at 9:57 am #421459
I thought the color, texture and shape of the leaves were more interesting than the sprouts themselves. I also liked how the water beads off the leaves. Car wax companies should look into how they do it. But the more I looked at this shot the less I liked it. Tried to delete it yesterday but like a bad cold it just wouldn’t go away. I appreciate your comment though. 🙂
- October 11, 2019 at 8:38 pm #421541
My favourite veggie! I like the pic Dave because of the colours in the leaves and the dew. I yearn for the BG veggies though 🙂
- October 8, 2019 at 9:42 am #421332
- October 8, 2019 at 5:22 pm #421350
Love the textures, color and lighting here, Bobbie. Boy! That looks like the start of something delicious!
- October 9, 2019 at 2:48 am #421394
Thanks Pat. It was part of wonderful meal the men in the community prepared for the women. That happens in my home every day since I barely cook and my partner loves to but it’s rarer in some other homes 🙂
- October 9, 2019 at 7:27 am #421404
Mine would be one of the “rare” homes.
- October 8, 2019 at 10:58 pm #421376
This is a tough thread to look at when hungry! Nice job, Bobbie.
- October 9, 2019 at 2:49 am #421395
Thanks so much Leanne!
- October 9, 2019 at 8:58 am #421413
Quite the literal title Bobbie! This makes me want some grilled veggies
- October 10, 2019 at 1:30 am #421449
Thanks for your comment Preston
- October 11, 2019 at 8:44 pm #421542
Yum! Love the colour and the steel on wood textures. That chopping board has seen some action Bobbie.
I was reading about primary and secondary diagonals on Diane Wehr’s street photography website last night and this pic is a classic example of the secondary diagonal (bottom left to top right corner).
- October 12, 2019 at 3:13 am #421588
Thanks for your comment and the info Graham. I don’t remember ever hearing those terms and I’ll look at the site you mentioned.
- October 8, 2019 at 3:56 pm #421345
- October 8, 2019 at 11:00 pm #421377
I love how the top of a gourd looks like a scrunched up face! This is a fun angle, Diane.
- October 11, 2019 at 8:48 pm #421543
Suits the black BG perfectly Diane. These things are piled high in some supermarkets here at the moment so Halloween must be around the corner? Not a traditional celebration here but seems to be taking hold.
- October 8, 2019 at 6:40 pm #421351
Wild grapes are ripening – time to make a “Concord Grape Pie”
- October 8, 2019 at 11:01 pm #421378
A favourite of mine! Did you have a good season for them? A friend of mine had a bumper crop this year.
- October 9, 2019 at 7:28 am #421405
Yes, we did, Leanne. Thank you.
- October 9, 2019 at 2:53 am #421396
Beautiful colors Pat. The lighting makes the grapes look like precious gems. Enjoy oyur pie!
- October 9, 2019 at 8:50 am #421411
Fantastic light Pat! It looks like they’re partly full with liquid.
- October 9, 2019 at 8:53 pm #421436
- October 10, 2019 at 10:04 am #421460
I agree. The colors and light are wonderful. You’ve got me thinking about planting some grapes now. We had Concord, Flame and Himrod at the farm and we kind of miss ’em.
- October 11, 2019 at 8:53 pm #421544
Beautiful fresh colour Pat. Never heard of Grape Pie before but going on my track record with eating grapes, reckon I could clear a room after eating a slice or two 🙂
- October 8, 2019 at 6:42 pm #421352
Corn is past prime and often recycled as Fall decorations.
- October 9, 2019 at 2:54 am #421397
I love the tones and the composition Pat. It’s a perfect autumn image.
- October 9, 2019 at 7:29 am #421407
- October 10, 2019 at 10:13 am #421461
Bobbies right. Beautiful light as well. And the background is just soft enough to make the subject stand out but keep it in its environment.
- October 11, 2019 at 8:57 pm #421545
I agree with exactly what Bobbie said. Lovely colours and texture. Aged cord still on the cob is not something I have ever seen. Never crossed my mind what happens to corn when it grows out.
- October 8, 2019 at 11:05 pm #421380
I take food shots a lot but rarely share them…they are mostly for documentation, for myself. But since I have them…here is another one! Our cobs are short, typically, but very tasty!
- October 8, 2019 at 11:24 pm #421387
I really like this one Leanne, we used to grow a few 100 acres of corn when I was much younger. I love farming, though I don’t do it anymore.
- October 8, 2019 at 11:30 pm #421389
- October 9, 2019 at 10:03 am #421414
That’s an awesome picture!
- October 10, 2019 at 10:19 am #421462
Wow. Speaking of beautiful light. And great composition and color. The term “buttery yellow” fits here in more ways than one. Looks absolutely delicious.
- October 11, 2019 at 9:01 pm #421546
Gorgeous pic Leanne and a wonderful example of a primary diagonal (been reading about them lately). Must be a great variety of corn because everyone I’ve ever seen has hundreds of hairy filaments between the kernels. I can see only one tiny stringy bit in your pic so did this cob go to make-up prior to the shoot or is it natural?
- October 11, 2019 at 9:37 pm #421564
It’s all in how you shuck it! 😉 No make-up required, Graham!
- October 9, 2019 at 11:45 pm #421447
- October 11, 2019 at 9:05 pm #421547
Interesting pic Robert. I like the burst of white from the darker wood. Not big on the camouflage side of things are they? Maybe its because they’re deadly to eat?
- October 10, 2019 at 1:33 am #421451
- October 10, 2019 at 9:14 am #421455
I like it!

Thanks for your comment Holly. I like it too …
- October 10, 2019 at 10:16 pm #421488
Super shot Bobbie .. 2 Thumbs 😉
- October 11, 2019 at 9:09 pm #421548
I like it a lot too Bobbie. Colourful produce and colourful characters show a way of life envied by some. Looks like he’s jokingly threatening the competiton with a piece of cardboard!
- October 12, 2019 at 3:18 am #421589
Thanks so much Graham. I thought someone might see the cardboard that way (I think it’s one of the price markers). In this market it’s possible that they’re even from the same extended family.
- October 11, 2019 at 9:38 pm #421566
Great moment captured, Bobbie! Nice job.
- October 12, 2019 at 3:20 am #421590
Thanks Leanne. I’m definitely drawn more to people than produce.
- October 10, 2019 at 10:14 pm #421487
- October 11, 2019 at 4:32 am #421507
The focus and the colors make the berries stand out beautifully.
I’ve heard of elderberry wine (in plays, books and movies) but never seen one. Can they be eaten from the bush/tree?
- October 12, 2019 at 8:43 am #421600
Thank you Bobbie , here is a little info on them.
- October 11, 2019 at 9:11 pm #421549
Nice pic Pat. Don’t think I’ve ever seen an Elderberry either. They look a bit like Blueberries. Only heard of them through Elton John’s Elderberry Wine song.
- October 12, 2019 at 8:43 am #421601
Thanks very much mate.
- October 10, 2019 at 10:32 pm #421489
Must be a SHITake.

- October 11, 2019 at 9:17 pm #421552
Lovely pic Diane. Never heard of these either. Wonder what they taste like (if edible)? Your pic made me think again about hi-key because I always automatically think of B&W but this pic works really well with the white fruit and minimal colour of the leaves and stalk.
