A Russian Food Riddle – Week 37 of 52 week photo project


 A Russian Riddle

She came from the East in a beautiful red dress

and when she undressed they all cried.Red onion for 52 week photo projectWelcome to this week’s wrap-up post 

The theme for Week 37/52 –Fruit and vegetables

It was at our recent discussion group that we heard this Russian riddle from one of our members who came from Poland.  She had many interesting stories to tell and this riddle made me think of using a red onion for my photo for this week’s theme of fruit/vegetables.  I decided to make it a ‘different’ style photo and so zoomed in quite a bit on the top of the onion to keep you guessing at what it might be.    I thought it was an interesting take on the theme anyway!

Photos from the group

The photos from the others in the group were delightful this week.  Here’s a summary in my words – you really need to click the link to read their words as well as see their photos for yourself!

Feel free to follow the link above to check them out for yourself. Maybe leave a comment if one of the photos particularly takes your fancy. We always appreciate hearing your thoughts 🙂

Daniel’s shot featured some bananas right above his head with a beautiful colour palette.

Grant’s photo was of half eaten peaches on the ground after the parrots have been through them.

Melanie’s photo is a work in progress.

Sharon featured a delicious looking colour palette of fruit and veg   – such a good selection of colour and textures that would look great in a food magazine!

Tim’s photo was very clever – the perception not being the reality! You just have to pop over and have a look at it.

You can read more about the story behind the project here: 52 week photography project  – but basically I have joined with 5 photographers, of varying experience, to take a photo every week for a year, one theme at a time. That’s 52 weeks of photos!

 Life is like an onion: you peel it off one layer at a time,

and sometimes you weep.

With each photo we also submit some accompanying words, which can be just as interesting as the photo itself some weeks! This can include the subject, the setup, the story behind it and even the process we have used to get our photo for the week. It’s certainly extending my creative thought processes!

How did you like our interpretations this week? Let me know as I always appreciate hearing from you.

I can’t believe we’re up to 37 weeks already!

Next week’s theme is: A table-top object

Enjoy your week ahead.

    Very clever photo, Deb. I didn’t guess onion right away…but now it seems obvious!

    What a great photo, Debbie!

    I was once taught that “Anyone can take a photo of a landscape and make it look good, the work is done for you, but it takes an artist to make you actually ‘think’ about the subject”. I love that, at first glance, it’s uncertain what you’re showing us, but from that same first glance there is intrigue, there is texture, there are layers. It invites a second look. Very good photo 🙂

      That’s exactly what I was trying to get across Shaun, the guessing of what the photo was all about. I’m so happy with have your creative input 😊 thanks again
