Still nature: tomatoes

I never thought I was going to do one of these (I hated painting still natures in art class, even more than I hated painting in general – which I did because I’ve never been able to draw anything beyond an awfully misshapen tree), but I was up early today so I dropped by my grandma’s, and there we were, talking about life, when I saw three totally shootable tomatoes sitting on her countertop. Can you believe these things grow in her backyard? I amuse myself; I love shooting living things, but I can’t make them grow for the life of me.

I burned the background a little bit in Photoshop, to make the fruits stand out (yeah, I’m one of those dorks who know tomatoes are actually fruits, not vegetables). I don’t have a DSLR, but I get by all the same.
