Last summer, Andy & I grew broccoli from seed… I found it endlessly fascinating with the macro lens of my (then new) Olympus PowerShot camera.

I could get deeply lost in this kind of texture… it makes me want to recreate it with fiber and french knots!

  1. Your photos are amazing!

  2. Thanks, Bev! I love looking close at things…

  3. The shapes are very sensual… who knew?

  4. Awesome! Broccoli is my absolute favorite veggie. I get teased because I could eat it almost every night. I should try growing it.

  5. Super cool image! Macro images are always so much fun to take.

  6. Great title *and* photo! Love the juicy beads of water, too.

  7. […] Much obliged, Carrie Cahill Mulligan […]

  8. Nice photo.

  9. […] Now, with’s recent release of Monotone, a chameleon photoblogging platform, I have taken the plunge and started a photo site of my own. […]

  10. Nice photo! But I’m using Monotone in WordPress too, and the background remains black no matter which image I use. Am I not doing something I should?

  11. Hmmm… that’s wierd. The same happens to me, when first I upload the photo and view it. But the second time I view it, the background color (a surprise to me) loads fine. I have no idea why!

    Sounds like a good question for the forums… ask the hive-mind!

  12. […] Plus, it’s summer, my garden is booming and broccoli reminds me of french knots! […]
