The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #225 and 225.5 2012

A Study in Red
Choke cherries, home grown Cayenne chilies and tomatoes.

Choke Cherry Tree
Evidently these cherries are so tart
that only the bears will eat them. A friend did make jelly
with them using pectin and apple juice, but it required so
much sugar she never made it again.

I love tomatoes and eat them whenever available. Its lycopene is supposedly healing.

Btw, in Cebu, a neighboring island,lives a natural part-time farmer who was able to grow tomatoes as sweet as cherries through fermented juices that he uses to build and water the soil. He gives new meaning to "cherry tomatoes!"

Cheers on this Tuesday morning!
