Susan! I nearly fell off my chair.

Now THAT is 'wood'. Alive, warm and exquisitely carved by the human hand. The detail! Just gorgeous.

I have almost a wooden bowl like this and i do have cur chillies, but i would have never thought of clicking them, i am not creative like this.
Love the idea and the click.

We used to have this flower around a lot when I was growing up, called Wood Rose. It looks nothing like the chillies or the carved flowers, it was a fragile thing that would crack - why did I remember that when I saw this? It was the colour of the wood, I think.

And yes, it also strikes me as I write that a fried curd chilli and a wood rose are very much alike - crackly and fragile.

I saw this picture at the CLICK gallery. I have a small wooden inlaid three legged table whost top is carved like this.
And those chillies are a favourite, with rice and some fresh yogurt.

I love the way you've captured these two juxtaposed textures- I was awestruck from the moment I saw it; lucky it wasn't an entry..hands down!

Susan said...

Thank you, everyone! As Pel said, the textures worked, and I was blessed with good natural light that day. I love these little guys; the salt and heat really satisfy in a way that potato chips don't.
