When life gives you lemons…time to make some still life photographs. Its the end of the maple sugaring season and the start of the mugs season here in Vermont and New Hampshire. What little snow we got this year is long gone. The crocuses are blooming but the daffodils and tulips are just beginning to emerge from the soil. No buds on the trees yet and certainly no leaves. In other words every at the moment is plain brown and ugly!
Not like summer, autumn or at least snow covered winter when things look good.

So I’ve been counting the days to a spring break to Florida next week and been staying out of the rain down in basement studio. I’ve been playing around with some bright yellow lemons. Here is a few of my creations:
Bright yellow lemons in a white bowl over a blue background. A bright, colorful image for your kitchen. Also available on tote bags and pillows.
“When Life Gives You Lemons” – Still life with two lemons in a white ceramic bowl.
Still life of a single yellow lemon on a granite slab over wood.
Three fresh yellow lemons in a wooden box. Dramatic lighting and desaturated colors allow the colorful lemons to pop.
The lemon (Citrus × limon) is a species of small evergreen tree native to Asia.
The tree’s ellipsoidal yellow fruit is used for culinary and non-culinary purposes throughout the world, primarily for its juice, which has both culinary and cleaning uses. The pulp and rind (zest) are also used in cooking and baking. The juice of the lemon is about 5% to 6% citric acid, which gives a sour taste. The distinctive sour taste of lemon juice makes it a key ingredient in drinks and foods such as lemonade and lemon meringue pie.
