Cherry season is here, and I've been having a great time with a bowl of cherries. This one ties into a number of themes I've been developing over the years -- cherries, stars, swirls, circles, reflections, refractions.
"The Audience Reacts"
I got so many interesting photos that I couldn't decide, so there are two Catches today. Cherries have so much personality, with their little round bodies and their shiny red surfaces. The stems, which usually read as long necks with little heads perched on top, are functioning here as sort of top-knots. I was struck by how many different expressions this group has. It makes me wonder what they're watching.
