Slice of Summer

Today we had a slice of summer. It was hot, sunny and beautiful here in the city. After a trail walk, what better way to cool off than with a little citrus?

Using my macro lens I got in nice and close, putting more focus on the citrus slice than the glass it was perched on. I thought about cropping this square, leaving the glass out entirely but decided against it as the glass is still important, just not most important. Taking the image into photoshop, I added some texture and a teal overlay to create visual interest.


  1. I like the results!
    It's interesting that we visual people would first quench our thirst for beauty.

    1. Great observation. True for me more often than not!

  2. Ive like your photos.
