Macro Monday: 11-24-08 At the Market



Macro Monday - hosted by Lisa



We love our local farmers markets. Not only do we get fresh local produce and other goodies like smoked salmon and beeswax candles, I always manage to find something interesting to photograph. Saturday was the final day for our favorite market.

Click on photos to enlarge, for full effect.

Romanesque cauliflower. A young girl nearby asked if this was monster scales.
This is what the whole plant looks like.

Bell peppers. They always have such interesting shapes and a variety of colors.

Those plants are scary ;o) I saw them in the canteen on my previous work a few months ago and was scared. But they tasted okay.

That Romanesque cauliflower is beautiful! I can see the monster or dragon scales there!
