Judith MacArthur 7/23/2005 7:56:53 PM

Just visited your gallery, Ken, and you have some wonderful images there...Love your tulips, which are a favorite subject of mine too, but had to comment on Harvest. This is the kind of image one can just look and look at .... so well done. I'm curious: was this a "found" subject or "created"? #1629440

Ken Grooms 7/23/2005 9:16:02 PM

Thanks so much, Judith! Created in imitation of Sam Abell's harvest basket found, I believe, in his book, "Seeing Gardens." I'll have to check on that, though. His, of course, is infinitely better, but what I really love about his version is the inclusion of vegetables as well as fruit. I had never seen that before. I couldn't find all the things he had in his basket, so I just did the best that I could. #1629718

Sharon Day 7/27/2005 8:45:50 PM

Amanda Price 9/29/2005 7:21:13 AM

What a bountifully delicious shot, Ken! My daughter has broken out in eczema on her poor little face and it seems the only thing that helps it is for me to live on beef and rice. Nothing. Else. In other words this mouthwatering shot is pure torture. :) #1898880

The composition you created with shapes and colors is very nice on its own. But, your sharpness of focus, the light giving texture to your subject makes this an extremely beautiful holiday image.

You did a wonderful job with this capture.

Ken Grooms 11/23/2006 7:15:49 PM

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I am so bloated with turkey, I'm "'bout to explode", to quote Bing. I can't believe I won POTD - I never have before!
I shot this a few years ago with a Nikon N90s and an 85mm f/1.4D nikkor lens on a cheapo Bogen tripod in my backyard in open shade. I shot several pics, this being the closest at 3 ft...stopped down.
I'm falling off now...good night everyone...God belss you all. #3622542
