Let’s give this the alternate caption “Food Under Flash”, shall we? Our first fig of the season, photographed from a top-down position on a white plate. I added the black background in the post-processing stage. With the exceedingly arid and warm weather of the past three months, late-summer fruits like this fist-sized fig and blackberries are maturing much earlier than usual. Photographed freshly picked off the tree on July 21 in the summer with bounce flash. Homegrown goodness!
