The plum tree in our back yard is bearing heavily right now. I spent a half hour picking plums on Monday, and thought it a good opportunity to take photographs looking up on a few I placed on the fence post and down into the harvest basket I was to fill. Thanks to Helena for starting the weekly look up//look down photo meme. I have taken so many pairings in my garden that it will be a wonderful document to look back upon. I would say roughly half of my look up//look down photographs have been taken out back. For those of you who also participate in this meme, do you find yourself returning to one place over and over again?
And just for fun, here's what the basket looked like when I was done picking (yes, there's a few little tomatoes in there, too):
I must admit that I love the photographs from today. I took them with my real camera, as opposed to my iphone. The camera phone is quite good, lots of fun and oh-so-convenient. But these photographs are a great reminder to use my DSLR as well!
