Balanced Vegetables

f1.8, 1/250, 50mm, iso 200, no flash

I tried four different things for this challenge... the first one I was too embarrassed to post, the second one I couldn't get to work (can any of you do that fork and spoon balancing on a toothpick thing???), the third one was just boring, and this one... I decided to challenge myself in a new way. I took my camera out IN THE GROCERY STORE and took a picture. This is a huge step for me. I was SO nervous, but as soon as I started snapping I forgot there were even people around. Someday I'll be as brave as some of you!

Anyway... vegetables are part of a balanced diet, the fruits and veggies are balanced so beautifully at the grocery store (until you pull the wrong one out of the stack!), AND the colors are balanced... red with green on both sides.
