Most of these images are from two weeks ago as I didn’t get a chance to share them earlier. I thought that September is a perfect month to post these beautiful and delicious tomatoes which I proudly grow myself. I created a mini garden for the first time on my balcony where I am now surrounded by colorful pots and vases, some which I hand painted in different bright colors, and planted rosemary, thyme, sage, green onions, parsley, basil, lemon balm as well as tomatoes, radishes, red bell peppers and aloe vera.
And if that weren’t enough, there was still space to also plant a fern, string of pearls, monkey cups, a bug eating plant, and a hanging cactus that looks like a beautiful cascade of colorful mini red balls that later blossom into white flowers. I remember it was nothing more than a tiny branch when my mother gave it to me in 2010.
Since then I’ve been practicing new photography styles, angles, lighting and effects with my new Lumix DMC-ZS40 and the new NEXUS 5X phone, both which I received as gifts. It’s been so much fun playing around and learning new things.
Below are some photos that I took with the vegetables and fresh herbs from the garden against the wooden board that I really like to use to add a background texture. Also enjoying the experimentation with flat lays which are something completely new to me.
Hope you have an amazing week!
